Myles, LaToya

A deep breath of fresh, clean air is truly satisfying. Beyond that pleasure, the public benefits of clean air are enormous – fewer cases of lung cancer, asthma, and other respiratory ailments; and fewer pollutants in the environment which can harm plants and animals everywhere.

NOAA Scientists Contribute to 2014 Ozone Depletion Assessment

We talked with Dr. John Daniel, Research Physicist with NOAA Research’s Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) Chemical Sciences Division, and Steve Montzka, Atmospheric Scientist with ESRL’s Global Monitoring Division, about the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environment Programme Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion: 2014 and what inspired them to pursue a career in science. Daniel and Montzka played vital roles in the development of the 2014 ozone depletion assessment, which is conducted every four years and provides the most recent information on the state of ozone depletion to policy makers, researchers, and the public worldwide.
