    After the enthusiastic celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that
    Deplete the Ozone Layer in 2007, the work for the protection of the ozone layer continues. The
    Environmental Effects Assessment Panel is one of the three expert panels within theMontreal Protocol.
    This “EEAP” deals with the increase of the UV irradiance on the Earth’s surface and its effects on
    human health, animals, plants, biogeochemistry, air quality and materials. For the past few years,
    interactions of ozone depletion with climate change have also been considered. It has become clear that
    the environmental problems will be long-lasting. In spite of the fact that the worldwide production of
    ozone depleting chemicals has already been reduced by 95%, the environmental disturbances are
    expected to persist for about the next half a century, even if the protective work is actively continued,
    and completed. The latest full report was published in Photochem. Photobiol. Sci., 2007, 6, 201–332,
    and the last progress report in Photochem. Photobiol. Sci., 2008, 7, 15–27. The next full report on
    environmental effects is scheduled for the year 2010. The present progress report 2008 is one of the
    short interim reports, appearing annually.
