Ozone Over the Canadian Arctic

Canada's northern geography makes it one of the most vulnerable countries in the world when it comes to the effects of ozone depletion in the Arctic region.

The YES I Can! Science team has prepared a curriculum guide to be used with grades 6 and 7 students to develop a basic understanding of the importance of stratospheric ozone. It is recommended for use in conjunction with field data gathered this spring by an expedition team skiing across Auyuittuq National Park on Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic. It may be used as a "real-time" event this spring, (e.g. as part of Earth Day activities), or as an archived event at a later point in time.
