Satellite data on ozone trends is investigated for different locations: the high Southern latitudes, the student's hometown, and a city near the North Pole. Students will download and plot ozone data for each location spanning a one year time period. This data will be examined and analyzed to determine if ozone levels fluctuate seasonally, if the levels of ozone in the atmosphere differ between the northern and southern hemispheres, and if any of the chosen locations experience an ozone hole (a decrease in ozone levels to 220 DU or less). This lesson uses student- and citizen science-friendly microsets of authentic NASA Earth system science data from the MY NASA DATA project. It also includes related links, extensions, an online glossary, and a list of related AP Environmental Science topics.
