    without an ozone layer. We have men, we’ve got rickets, we’ve got rockets, we’ve got saran wrap – FIX IT””, said Lewis Black, a comedian. If only it were that easy. However the ozone continues to be depleted because of deforestation. To understand this topic, one must understand what the ozone and deforestation are. The ozone should be protected at any cost. If we fail to protect our ozone, the earth will become one big frozen and lifeless ball. First and foremost, to understand the ozone one must

  • The Effects Of Ozone Depletion

    835 Words  | 4 Pages

    The ozone depletion has been well documented to negatively affect planet Earth for years. The ozone is a thin layer of the Earth´s atmosphere which is responsible for absorbing the sun's harmful ultraviolet light ( What is Ozone Layer?,2017). The loss of ozone on earth will take a toll on human health, plants and marine ecosystems, ultimately resulting in a planet that does not support living things. Today, this manifests in climate change. It is easy for many to confuse these two issues, although

  • Effects of Ozone Pollution

    The Effects of Ozone Pollution The term "ozone" has appeared in numerous magazine and newspaper articles and has been a subject of discussion on both radio and television. Despite all the publicity surrounding this term, however, many people are still confused by it. The confusion arises from the fact that ozone is both beneficial and harmful. We know that the ozone layer in the upper atmosphere acts as a filter for the sun's ultraviolet rays, reducing the amount of radiation that reaches the

    shown that exposure to human by ozone is effective to health and it is increasing worldwide. Air pollution is the serious global threat which is increasing continuously and the ground level concentration of ozone is major problem in present and also in future. Presents projected average daily 8-h maximum ozone levels for future using the raw and calibrated climate model outputs. The 95% projections intervals accounts for uncertainties in the associations between daily ozone levels, and daily meteorology

  • Pros And Cons Of A Good Ozone And Good Ozone

    1151 Words  | 5 Pages

    Good ozone & Bad ozone Ozone occurs in two layers of the atmosphere. The ozone that is commonly associated with ozone depletion and the ozone “hole” is in the stratosphere, a layer that extends upward from about 10 to 30 miles (15 to 50 kilometers) above the earth. This “good” ozone shields life on earth from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays (UV-b). The layer surrounding the earth's surface is the troposphere. Here, ground-level or "bad" ozone is an air pollutant that damages human health,

  • Ozone Depletion

    The ozone layer is a specific area in the stratosphere of maximum ozone concentration. Ozone in the stratosphere forms naturally and protects us from damage that can be caused by solar radiation such as skin cancer. In the 1970s chemists discovered that certain chemicals could travel into the upper atmosphere and damage the protective ozone. Ever since this was discovered scientists, government, and citizens have been making efforts to control and reverse the damage done to the ozone. In 1987 a treaty

  • The Depletion Of The Ozone Layer

    1593 Words  | 7 Pages

    that all humans, no matter where or how they live depend on, water and air. Both are essential for life but air also protects all of us and it is therefore understandable that the response to the depletion of the ozone layer became international. This essay will look at what the ozone layer is, why it was depleting, how the international response to this situation developed and what this collaboration means for our future. The envelope of gases surrounding the earth is called the atmosphere and

    stratosphere, and the ozone layer which sits in the lower area of the stratosphere. The troposphere layer is where a lot of human activity occurs, such as planes and mountain climbing. The next layer is the stratosphere and this is where the ozone layer is located as well. The ozone layer helps protect people from ultraviolet radiation that mainly come from the sun. The ozone layer can be different depending on the season and the location. Over the past few years, the ozone layer has been depleting

    OZONE DEPLETION BY HUMAN’S ACTIONS The ozone layer is a very important component in the atmosphere. Ozone is not the same as the oxygen humans breathe. There is very little of this gas in the atmosphere. First off, let’s begin with a definition of the ozone layer. Ozone is a hot, slightly bluish gas. It is a molecule made up of three oxygen atoms, which are very similar to the molecule we are familiar with (O2), the molecule needed for human respiration. Despite the major smog problem

  • The Ozone Hole And Polar Regions

    1220 Words  | 5 Pages

    The Ozone Hole and the Polar Regions The Polar Regions of the Earth have slowly been fading away in the past two centuries, but with the introduction of a new and growing problem, the ozone hole, the Polar Regions are more vulnerable than ever before. The depletion of the ozone within the atmosphere has caused the atmosphere to alter its radiative effects and raise the overall climate of the Earth. The Earth’s ozone layer has continued to dwindle down in size and it has had profound effects on
