Ten years after the discovery of the hole in the ozone layer over the Antarctic caused by chlorofluorocarbons, the problem continues to worsen, according to one of the original discoverers, J. D. Shanklin of the British Antarctic Survey. He and colleague Anna Jones report in the current Nature that the amount of ozone lost during the Antarctic spring continues to grow and that the hole now persists into the summer months of January and February.
