Abstract
Total ozone data of 1995/96 season and of the beginning of 1996/97 season from Vernadsky Antarctic station (65S, 64W) are given. The ground-based observations were made using Dobson spectrophotometer that was handed over to the Ukrainian Antarctic Center by the British Antarctic Survey in order to continue the one of the longest series of total ozone data in Antarctica. In 1995/96 season the features of the ozone 'hole' appeared at the mid of September. From the mid of December the ozone hole disappeared, but in Antarctic summer 1995/96 the ozone values were unusually low. The state of 1996/97 season measurements brings the peculiarities of ozone hole early -- at the beginning of August ozone values dropped down to 120 DU. The data of last two seasons probably shows that ozone hole above Antarctica has extended in time to summer months and has appeared earlier in the polar spring.
