In this world of rapid change, it's extremely difficult for a company to
stay ahead of the game even using all the resources available to them. So, it's
difficult to imagine the problems they would run into when a group of
environmentalists decide to boycott a substance which is
A Case for
"Ignoring the Facts"
Ozone forms a layer of the earth's atmosphere that protects us from the sun's deadly ultraviolet rays. During the last decade there has been a scare set forth by environmental enthusiasts that Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) destroy the ozone layer.
Like an infection that grows more and more virulent, the continent-size hole in Earth's ozone layer keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Each year since the late 1970s, much of the protective layer of stratospheric ozone above Antarctica has disappeared during September, creating what is pop
ozone depletion is a serious problem presently facing the world. The ozone layer protects humans, animals, and plants from harmful ultraviolet rays. Money and time are being spent on ozone repair, but the problem still exists.
The ozone layer is a region of the stratosphere containi
Stratospheric ozone depletion Types of Monitoring Umkehrs: (the German word for reversal) are a sequence of special ozone measurements made from sunrise or to sunset using a spectrophotometer. These measurements require clear skies and provide a crude atmospheric ozone profile at nine levels (0-
Ozone depletion refers to the phenomenon of reduction in ozone from the Earth’s atmosphere. Ozone is a layer surrounding the stratosphere that helps to prevent most harmful wavelengths of ultraviolet light from passing through the Earth's atmosphere. Ozone depletion is caused by the chlorofluoroca
Causes of Ozone Depletion
Ozone depletion occurs when the natural balance between the production and destruction of stratospheric ozone is tipped in favour of destruction. Although natural phenomena can cause temporary ozone loss, chlorine and bromine released from man-made compounds such as CFCs a
Ozone depletion describes two distinct, but related observations: a slow, steady decline of about 4% per decade in the total volume of ozone in Earth's stratosphere (theozone layer) since the late 1970s, and a much larger, bu

Earth isn’t as invincible as most of us would like to believe. It’s a very sensitive planet that has, what some would consider, a forcefield around it which we call, the ozone layer. The ozone layer is scientifically known as a layer in Earth’s atmosphere

All over the world, people have continued to experience a number of problems associated with climatic change. People are not the only one being affected, plants and animals have also been victims. A hot debate ranges on the causes of climatic change with one side believing it to be the natural proce
DIFFERENT TYPES OF ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTIONS
When there are some physical, chemical or biological changes occur in our physical environment it is known as pollution and the substances which brings these changes are known as pollutants. The sources for the pollution can be natural or manmade.
Ozone depletion describes two distinct but related phenomena observed since the late 1970s: a steady decline of about 4% per decade in the total volume of ozone in Earth'sstratosphere (the ozone layer), and a much larger springtime decrease in stratospheric ozone over...

CFCs and Ozone Depletion
Ozone depletion is one of the many problems associated with air pollution around the world. There has been a lot of debate regarding the causes of ozone depletion, which in brief means the thinning of the ozone layer in the stratosphere. However, the main reason...
Our Radiant Planet- Depletion of the Ozone Layer
Ozone is a relatively unstable form of molecular oxygen containing three oxygen
atoms produced when upper-atmosphere oxygen molecules are split by ultra violet
light. Stratospheric ozone is found in a broad band, extending generally from 15

Nowadays, people very often raise the subject of the threat of the environment and the ways of preventing natural disasters. A so-called ozone hole (also known as ozone depletion) is also the topic of many discussions. Everybody knows that this phenomenon is worrying and it brings undesired effects
ISSUES AND CONCERNS ABOUT THE OZONE LAYER DEPLETION
The ozone layer protects the Earth from the ultraviolet rays sent down by the sun. If the ozone layer is depleted by human action, the effects on the planet could be catastrophic. In recent years, the ozone layer has been the sub
Ozone Layer Depletion
The distribution of ozone in the stratosphere is a function of altitude, latitude and season. It is determined by photochemical and transport processes. The ozone layer is located between 10 and 50 km above the Earth's surface and contains 90% of all stratospheric ozone. Un
OZONE-LAYER DEPLETION AND NATURAL RESOURCES
Sometime ago, a warning endorsed by more than 1,600 of the world’s most distinguished scientists, including 102 Nobel Prize winner states in part:
Human being and the natural world are on collision course. Human activities inflict
