An "Ozone Hole" or low ozone event has formed over Europe. The ozone layer over areas in The UK, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Russia has dropped to levels under 225 Dobson Units. Ozone values below 220 DU are levels which usually are defined as an "Ozone Hole".

The ozone layer, high up in the atmosphere, shields Earth from much of the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. A gradual thinning due to emissions of damaging man-made chemicals has increased the occurrence of skin cancer and other illnesses related to over-exposure to ultraviolet rays.
