A large part of the ozone layer grew thin in the North Pole region and scientists warn that it will get to Scandinavia and Eastern Europe on March 30 and 31, warning Romania as well, according to euractiv.com.
The fast-thinning Arctic ozone layer was first detected by an international network of over 30 ozone sounding stations spread across the Arctic and sub-Arctic, and coordinated by the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research. The institute’s latest predictions, based on data collated from the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts, are that it will affect parts of Scandinavia and Eastern Europe on 30 March and 31 March.
