between climate change and stratospheric ozone depletion as well as model predictions about the future development of the stratospheric ozone layer. The book concludes with a consideration of the possible effects on the ozone layer which are the cause of stratospheric ozone depletion in general and the Antarctic ozone hole in particular.

Ozone depletion is primarily caused by human activities. The main effect of ozone depletion is an increase in UV-B rays reaching the earth's surface. Causes: chlorofluorocarbon (CFCs), halons, and other compounds deplete the ozone chemicals are found in cleaning agents, aerosols, insulating foam, and refrigerants.

massive ozone losses in Polar Regions and the much smaller, but nonetheless significant, ozone losses in other parts of the world. Technically, the term "ozone hole" should be applied to regions where stratospheric ozone depletion is so severe that levels fall below Dobson Units (D.U.), the traditional measure of stratospheric ozone.

Ozone depletion and climate change, or Ozone hole and global warming in more popular terms, are environmental challenges whose connections have been explored and which have been compared and contrasted, for example in terms of global regulation, in various studies and books.

There is widespread scientific interest in better regulation of climate change, ozone depletion and air pollution, as. Ozone Depletion: Causes, Effects & Solutions Ozone depletion (also referred to as ozone layer depletion) can be defined as the gradual thinning of the Earth’s ozone layer in the upper atmosphere which is caused by the release of chemical substances containing bromine or chlorine from industrial or other human activities.

A high concentration of ozone is found in the stratosphere region and some concentration is found in the troposphere of the atmosphere. O 3 in the stratospheric zone considers being good as it protects us from the harmful UV rays and refers as “Good stratosphere ozone”.; Whereas, O 3 found in the troposphere region considers being acts as atmospheric pollutants that can cause many.

The stratospheric ozone layer is Earth’s “sunscreen” – protecting living things from too much ultraviolet radiation from the sun. The emission of ozone depleting substances has been damaging the ozone layer.

But through domestic and international action, the ozone layer is. The nitrogenous compounds such as NO2, NO, N2O is highly responsible for the depletion of the ozone layer.

Natural Causes. The ozone layer has been found to be depleted by certain natural processes such as Sun-spots and stratospheric winds. But it does not cause more than % of the ozone. The stratospheric ozone is a naturally occurring atmospheric gas which forms the ozone layer that protects the Earth from catastrophic ultraviolet rays produced by the sun.

Bad ozone found at ground level, which is also known as tropospheric ozone or low level ozone is an air pollutant. An illustration of an open book.

Ozone depletion and climate change are linked in a number of ways, but ozone depletion is not a major cause of climate change. Atmospheric ozone has two effects on the temperature balance of the Earth. It absorbs solar ultraviolet radiation, which heats the stratosphere. The data regarding effect of ozone depletion on human was reviewed and compiled as a review paper from various published articles of international reputed journals, annual/environmental reports of recognized organization and e-books.

The causes, mechanism and bio-effects of ozone layer depletion on humans were addressed. Ozone itself absorbs UV between and nm light.

There have been large inter-annual and seasonal variations in all regions of the planet in the density of stratospheric ozone; it was verified that in the southern hemisphere concentration passes through a minimum in spring and then regenerates.

The ozone molecule is comprised of three oxygen atoms covalently bonded. “Ozone” by UCAR (Randy Russell) is licensed under CC BY-SA. Ozone (O 3) is a gaseous molecule that occurs in different parts of the atmosphere (Figure 1).It is very reactive chemically and is dangerous to plant and animal life when present in the lower portions of the.

The causes, mechanism and bio-effects of ozone layer depletion on humans were addressed. It is revealed that introduction of Chlorof-lourocarbons (CFCs) in the environment is the most rated cause.

EFFECTS OF CHANGES IN STRATOSPHERIC OZONE AND GLOBAL CLIMATE Volume 1: Overview Edited by James G. Titus U.S. Environmental Protection Agency This report represents the proceedings of the INTERNATIONAL CON- FERENCE ON HEALTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS OF OZONE MODIFICATION AND CLIMATE CHANGE sponsored by the United Nations Environment.

These changes result in a warming of the troposphere and a cooling of the stratosphere. Stratospheric cooling is a key factor in the development of ozone holes over the poles.

It is clear that actions to mitigate global warming can have positive effects on ozone depletion and vice versa.

SUMMARY INTRODUCTION This report reviews current knowledge about man-made causes of changes in concentrations of stratospheric ozone and the effects of those changes.

Recent reports of the National Research Council (NRCa,b,a,b) have treated the chemical and physical aspects of potential reductions of stratospheric ozone in. stratospheric ozone layer and reveals a concise overview of global ozone depletion.

The The causes and effects of global ozone depletion have been illuminated in this paper. The ozone layer is responsible for absorbing harmful ultraviolet rays, and preventing them from entering the Earth's atmosphere. However, various factors have led to the depletion and damage of this protective layer.

When CFCs reach the stratosphere, the ultraviolet radiation from the sun causes them to break apart and release chlorine atoms which react with ozone, starting chemical cycles of ozone destruction that deplete the ozone layer.

They point out, however, that the net cooling effect of observed changes in stratospheric CO 2, H 2 O and O 3 over-predicts the observed stratospheric temperature trends by a factor of 2 or more. Seppo T. Rinne, Joel D. Kaufman, in Clinical Respiratory Medicine (Fourth Edition), Ozone.

The stratospheric ozone layer is a normal part in the Earth's atmosphere that absorbs high-frequency ultraviolet (UV) rays and protects us from their damaging effects. In contrast, ground-level ozone is an air pollutant, which has harmful respiratory and cardiovascular effects.

Updated information on the benefits of EPA’s efforts to address ozone layer depletion is available in a report, Updating Ozone Calculations and Emissions Profiles for Use in the Atmospheric and Health Effects Framework Model. Effects on Plants. UVB radiation affects the physiological and developmental processes of plants.

It clearly points out that there is still sub. The Earth's ozone layer ozone layerThe region of the stratosphere containing the bulk of atmospheric ozone.

The ozone layer lies approximately kilometers ( miles) above the Earth's surface, in the stratosphere. Depletion of this layer by ozone depleting substances (ODS) will lead to higher UVB levels, which in turn will cause increased skin cancers and cataracts and potential damage.

People are concerned about the impact on their health of the climate warming and stratospheric ozone depletion that Europe has been experiencing for the last century. This publication attempts to clarify what early effects these environmental changes are having on our health, and what further effects they may have in the future.

As we know that ozone layer protect us from harmful ultra violet radiations of sun. Damage to the ozone layer is a cause of concern because ultra violet radiation from the sun will reach the earth and will effect human beings, plants and animals. The Montreal Protocol set an important precedent but more needs to be done.

It appears unlikely that the decrease in ozone-depleting substances alone will lead to the recovery of the stratospheric ozone layer to its pre concentration levels because of the competing and uncertain effects of further climate change.
