    Ozone Depletion and Indoor Air Pollution Nainsi McKinney 5/14/13 Ozone depletion is a very serious issue that is almost fully the fault of humans and the ozone is going to continue to thin if changes are not made. Chemicals that are used in everyday life are primarily responsible for the ozone loss; compounds called chlorofluorocarbons such as Freon and Styrofoam when used as a foam blowing agent for insulation (WileyPlus‚Chap.9.

    Ozone Depletion Good morning to our lecturer and my fellow friends. Today I want to deliver a speech on title “Ozone Depletion”. Did you know that about 20 kilometres from the earth’s surface there is a thin layer of gas forming just a small fraction of the earth’s atmosphere‚ without which harmful radiation from the sun would destroy all life on this planet? This is the ozone layer‚ which filters out harmful ultraviolet-B rays. Today‚ because of our negligence‚ the ozone layer is depleting.

    Scientific Article: The Ozone Layer The Ozone layer is located in the Earth’s upper atmosphere. It acts as a barrier and absorbs majority of UV radiation before it hits Earth’s surface. Ozone is made up of three oxygen atoms that are naturally occurring molecules. The depletion of the ozone has become a worldwide issue and is caused by the release of CFCs into the atmosphere. CFCs release chlorine atoms which break down ozone molecules. The depletion of the ozone layer threatens to leave life on

    Ozone depletion 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 Earth’s polar regions. The latter phenomenon is referred to as the ozone hole. In addition to these well-known stratospheric phenomena‚ there are also springtime polar tropospheric ozone depletion events. The details
