The Potential Effects of a Depleted Ozone Layer - Detrykowski
"And God said, let there be light and there was light and then God saw the
light, that it was good " ( Genesis 1: 3-4 ). Undoubtedly, light is good.
Without light man could not survive. Light is the ultimate cosmic force in this
OZONE LAYER ITS DEPLETION AND THE EFFECTS ON THE ENVIRONMENT
The Earth's atmosphere is divided into several distinct layers. The lowest region, the troposphere, extends from the Earth's surface up to about 15 kilometers in altitude. The troposphere is where all weather takes place. It is the re
The Atmospheric Ozone Layer
The stratospheric ozone layer exists at altitudes between about 10 and 40km
depending on latitude, just above the tropopause. Its existence is crucial for
life on earth as we know it, because the ozone layer controls the absorption of
a portion of the deadly ultraviolet
OZONE LAYER DEPLETION
"A giant asteroid could hit the earth! Something else
could happen! The global temperature could rise!
Science is a body of knowledge containing various
streams such as physics, chemistry, biology etc. "Its
sub-behavioral concept is Technology, whic
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 GLOBAL WARMING.
The ozone layer acts as a giant sunshade, protecting plants and animals from much of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiations.
Ozone forms a layer in the stratosphere, 15-40 km above the earth surf

The Ozone Layer
Ozone is a gas that occurs naturally in our atmosphere. Most of it is concentrated in the ozone layer, a region located in the stratosphere several miles above the surface of the Earth. Although ozone represents only a small fraction of the gas present in the atmosphere, it plays a
Our Global Sunscreen
By Mike Carlowicz
t’s not often that scientists get to conduct experiments that seem like they come out of a science fiction novel or a video game. Yet, that is what some researchers at NASA did a few years ago. Atmospheric physicists Paul Newman and Luke Oman built a
The ozone layer prevents ultraviolet sunlight from reaching Earth. (The Ozone hole, 2012). Without the ozone layer, it would be more likely to get skin cancer, eye damage, harm wildlife, reduce crop yields, and change the ocean food chain. The ozone is a molecule made up of three oxygen atoms. Groun
The depletion of the ozone layer is a major concern today. The ozone layer
protects us from the harmful rays of the sun; therefore it is imperative that we preserve it. Since more pollutants are produced today than ever before (because of the major increase in the population), there is a major conc
What is Ozone Layer?
Ozone layer is a deep layer in earth’s atmosphere that contain ozone which is a naturally occurring molecule containing three oxygen atoms. These ozone molecules form a gaseous layer in the Earth’s upper atmosphere called stratosphere. This lower region of stratosphere...
The ozone layer is a layer in Earth's atmosphere which absorbs most of the Sun's UV radiation. It contains relatively high concentrations of ozone (O3), although it is still very small with regard to ordinary oxygen, and is less than ten parts per million, the average ozone concentration in...
Every time 1% of the ozone layer is depleted, 2% more UV-B is able to reach the surface of the planet. So in short, without the ozone layer everything on earth will burn. The ozone layer is just as important to us as oxygen, without it the harmful UV radiation would give us server burns and...
The upper layer of the atmosphere surrounded by ozone (15 to 30 Kms) is known as ozonosphere. Ozone layer is a protective stratospheric layer, also known as ozone umbrella.
Ozone concentration differs by about 10 ppm in stratosphere compared to 0.05 ppm in troposphere. It acts as a...
The Ozone a Hole in the Theory
The protective ozone layer around our world undergoes much thought and debate. The "Hole", however, only exists in the minds of environmental, self-serving scientists and politicians. It interests many to find all the faults in the publics consensus of the "ozo
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
Our basic objective is to examine the scientific developments through history and how they affect human life and society. To meet that objective we will first develop tools to analyze the relationship between science and the increasingly complex decisions we have to make regarding the way
