Recently scientists in Zurich have discovered the ozone layer has not been repairing itself at lower altitudes, this has been seen in parts of the country that are heavily populated.

In this case the cause is still unknown. The Daily was joined by Ian Lowe from Griffith University to discuss more on this.
