The 2007 Antarctic ozone hole is reviewed from a variety of perspectives, making use of various Australian data and analyses. The 2007 ozone hole was relatively modest, particularly in comparison to that of 2006, due in part to a disturbance to the polar vortex in early September that led to an influx of ozone-rich air. Ozone depiction was still severe however in the lower stratosphere. The long-term outlook for recovery is described, with Antarctic ozone currently forecast to return to 1980 levels around the period 2055-2080.
