It is a website about the ozone layer and its global effects. It demonstrates by means of visuals the size, causes and consequences of the ozone in the Antartic. This website is interesting, interactive with the use of multimedia techniques. It is easy to navigate and up-to-date. It is informative without being too scientific. In this way, it has managed to cater for the scientist and the non-scientist. The pictures are very clear and effective. The only potential problem for visitors to the site is if their browsers cannot support pictures and/or movies. This can adversely affect their appreciation of this site.
I spent several minutes reviewing this site. The content seems very instructive-right at a level that I can understand (not being of a scientific background this is important). The materials are easy to read and follow.
This would be an excellent site for students and teachers to use to understand the "Ozone Hole". First itme users should find it fairly easy to use.

I spent 12-15 minutes at the site, and the quality of the content and graphics is excellent. The site is very easy to navigate with a lot of good instruction in how to make the most of the site. The use of movie clips to show actual and computer modeling of the ozone layer allows the authors to convey very difficult information so that the layperson can understand it. Also, the use of glossary links helps the layperson get needed additional information about specialized terms and significant people in the study of the ozone layer. This site would be very useful in both high school and college science classes.

I spent about 15 minutes browsing the site. I liked the fact that it was a fairly small web site containing the home page plus material divided into 4 parts (one part per page), with a few additional pages - glossary, tech info, links. Good quality of content, easy to use. I think it would be a valuable addition to a high school or college science course.
Easy to use provided the user's browser supports the animations. Author did provide a choice of formats for the animations. Several links to external sites no longer work.
