Abstract :

Atmospheric chemist Stephen Montska reports that atmospheric chlorine levels have peaked and begun to decline, which should enable the ozone layer to begin recovering by 2000. The decline is apparently due to the Montreal Protocol, an international agreement to restrict the use of chemicals that destroy ozone.
