I find this picture of the ozone levels as of he 18th rather odd.
The South Pole has no ozone hole at all now. Here in the North, we have a giant ozone hole AND a giant ozone surplus.
I’m just not seeing how this can be ascribed either to a ‘well mixed gas’ like the CFCs are supposed to be; or to UV concentration (as last time I checked central Russia and central Canada had about the same seasonal changes in UV).
Yeah, I know, we could have some kinds of stratospheric ozone dumps into polar vortex formations… sure, that sounds plausible ;-)
And as absolute ozone levels:
It will be interesting to see if there is a magnetic pole correlation at those spots. I did note was a solar flare 19 January:
Now if we get a big earthquake in North America in the next week or two, I’m going to remind everyone about the spot that formed over Japan just before their quake ;-)
Adding polar views of the Anomalies. Total at the S. Pole is not much different from the anomaly map, so I’m not going to waste storage space on it. Total N. Hemisphere Ozone is first, then the two anomalies:
