Caption: Antarctic temperatures. Computer model showing the average surface temperatures from December to May in the Antarctic for the years 1950 to 1959. Temperatures considered normal are white. Temperatures cooler than normal, range from light grey to dark grey (coolest) and temperatures warmer than normal, range from yellow to orange (warmest). During this period the average Antarctic temperature was normal, or cooler than normal over most of the region. This model was produced as part of a study on the impact of ozone (a greenhouse gas) in the lowest part of the atmosphere (troposphere) on Antarctic surface temperatures.
