    The objective of the Concordiasi mission is to understand better the enlargement of the hole in the Antarctica's ozone layer during each austral spring and to increase our knowledge on climate in those regions. To study the Earth's climate, the atmosphere has to be studied as a whole. Studying the poles is particularly important because of their specific sensitivity to climate changes and the poor frequency of the observations performed by the standard meteorological systems.
