Description

NASA SP-2005-4538. Monographs in Aerospace History, No. 38.

An important policy stimulus in many respects, ozone depletion spawned the Montreal Protocol of 1987 (the most significant international environmental treaty then in existence). It also was an issue critical to NASA’s history that served as a bridge linking NASA’s weather and land-resource satellites to NASA’s concern for the global changes affecting the home planet. Significantly, as a global environmental problem, ozone depletion underscored the importance of NASA’s ability to observe Earth from space. Moreover, the NASA management team’s ability to apply large-scale research efforts and mobilize the talents of other agencies and the private sector illuminated its role as a “lead” agency capable of crossing organizational boundaries as well as the science-policy divide.
