About the product
The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer requires periodic assessments of available scientific, environmental, technical and economic information. This 1994-Assessment on Environmental Effects is written so that it can be read without having the earlier reports at hand. It deals with specific consequences during the coming decades: the changes in solar ultraviolet radiation reaching the Earth's surface and the effects on humans, animals, plants, micro-organisms, air quality and materials. New in the assessment is a special chapter on biogeochemical cycles.
