Short summary
Reduced atmospheric ozone results in increased solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) at the surface which may potentially negative impact public health. We aimed to assess whether or not the break-up of the Antarctic ozone hole had an impact on ozone and UVR at Cape Point (South Africa). We found a moderate inverse relationship between ozone and UVR at midday on clear-sky days. The Antarctic ozone hole had a limited effect on ozone levels while tropical air masses more frequently affected the site.
