Environmental effects of ozone depletion and its interactions with climate change: progress report, 2015
The Parties to the Montreal Protocol are informed by three P anels of experts. One of these is the Environmental Effects Assessment Panel (EEAP), which deals with two f o- cal issues. The first focus is the effects of increased UV radiation on human health, a n- imals, plants, biogeochemistry, air quality , and materials. The second focus is on inte r- actions between UV radiation and global climate change and how these may affect h u- mans and the environment . When considering the effects of climate change, it has become clear that processes r e- sulting in changes in stratosphe ric ozone are more complex than previously believed . As a result of this, human health and environmental problems will be longer - lasting and more regionally variable. Like the other Panels, the EEAP produces a detailed report every four years; the most r ecent was published as a series of seven papers in 20 15 ( Photochem. Photobiol. Sci. , 20 15 , 14 , 1 - 184) . In the years in between, the EEAP produces less detailed and shorter Progress Report s, which highlight and assess the significance of developments in ke y areas of importance to the Parties . The present Progress Report for 20 15 is a short r e- port . A full Quadrennial Assessment , more detailed in terms of technical information, will be made available in 20 18 . T he 2015 Progress Report highlights the interactive nature of the effects of UV radi a- tion, atmospheric processes, and climate change
