The "State of the Climate in 2014" report was published by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) today. The report is the latest edition of a series of annual updates on dozens of climate variables that define the states of the atmosphere, the land, the oceans, and the cryosphere. BSI's senior scientist Dr. Germar Bernhard was the lead author on the section on Ozone and UV radiation in the Arctic. He has contributed similar essays to previous editions of the report. The publication is available here.
