An important consequence is the degree to which oceanic phytoplankton production inhibited by exposure to UVB, both near the ocean surface (where the effect should be slight) and below the surface (where the effect could be considerable). To measure this relationship, the researchers sampled from the ocean column at various depths at n = 17 locations around Antarctica during the austral spring of 1990. To account for shifting of the ozone hole’s positioning, they constructed a measure of UVB exposure integrated over exposure time. Does the effect of UVB exposure on the percentage inhibition differ at the surface and in the deep? How much difference is there?

Let y Percent Inhibition, x1 =UCB and x2 = 1 if Deep and x2 = 0 if Surface. The full model is, µy |x1 ,x2 = β0 + β1 x1 + β2 x2 + β3 x1 x2 . When x2 = 0, the model reduces to µy |x1 ,x2 = β0 + β1 x1 . When x2 = 1, then µy |x1 ,x2 = β0 + β1 x1 + β2 + β3 x1 which can be rewritten as µy |x1 ,x2 = (β0 + β2 ) + (β1 + β3 )x1 .
