Description
 
When ozone depletion first became an issue in the late 1960s, NASA was preoccupied with Apollo & landing a man on the Moon. NASA’s existing mission to observe planet Earth was augmented & directed more toward environmental quality. This report describes how in the late 1980s, NASA sought to plan & establish a new environmental effort that eventuated in the 1990s with the Earth Observing System. The Agency was able to make its initial mark via atmospheric monitoring, specifically ozone depletion. An important policy stimulus in many respects, ozone depletion spawned the Montreal Protocol of 1987. It served as a bridge linking NASA’s weather & land-resource satellites to NASA’s concern for the global changes affecting our planet. Illus.
