    The radiation in the stratosphere dissociates them producing chlorine atoms that catalytically destroy ozone. Cl atoms formed via photolysis of C-Cl bonds of chlorofluorocarbons in the stratosphere are particularly effective in destroying ozone at these altitudes because __________. Sci., , 18, –), of recent findings of current and projected interactive environmental effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation, stratospheric ozone, and climate change. These effects include those on human health, air quality, terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, biogeochemical cycles, and materials used in construction and other services.

Carbon dioxide is the major contributor to global warming. Besides carbon dioxide, other greenhouse gases are methane, water vapour, nitrous oxide, CFCs and ozone. Methane is produced.

      Ozone depletion, gradual thinning of Earth ’s ozone layer in the upper atmosphere caused by the release of chemical compounds containing gaseous chlorine or bromine from industry and other human activities. The thinning is most pronounced in the polar regions, especially over Antarctica. Ozone depletion is a major environmental problem. In total, ozone makes up only ppm of the atmosphere. Ozone is important to planet Earth. There is a portion of the stratosphere with a high concentration of ozone, called the ozone layer. The ozone layer filters out damaging ultraviolet radiation from the Sun, like a kind of sun screen. Without this ozone layer things would not have been EC Number: ––2.

Recent studies have demonstrated a link between ozone changes caused by human activities and changing UV levels at the Earth's surface, as well as a link to climate through changes in radiative forcing and links to changes in chemical composition.

This book draws together key scientists who provide state of the art contributions on the variable ozone layer and the interplay of longwave and shortwave radiative interactions which link ozone.

OZONE DEPLETION. The Antarctic vortex traps CFC’s The low polar temperatures results in ice particles on which gas-solid reactions can occur efficiently The same reactions in the gas phase have much higher activation energies.

The higher Ea and low temperatures result in very slow Size: KB. In contrast, mixing between the layers of the atmosphere occurs relatively slowly, so each layer has distinctive chemistry. We focus our attention on the stratosphere, which contains the highest concentration of ozone.

The sun’s radiation is the major source of energy that initiates chemical reactions in the atmosphere. The ozone layer prevents most ultraviolet (UV) and other high-energy radiation from penetrating to the earth's surface but does allow through sufficient ultraviolet rays to support the activation of vitamin D in humans.

The full radiation, if unhindered by this filtering effect, would destroy animal tissue. The ozone level is measured in Dobson Unit (DU), named after G.M.B.

Dobson, who investigated the ozone between and One Dobson Unit (DU) is defined to be mm thickness of ozone at STP when all the ozone in the air column above an area is collected and spread over the entire area.

UV radiation is subdivided into three wavelength bands: UV-A (– nm) radiation, UV-B (– nm) radiation (some authors use nm as the boundary between UV-A and UV-C radiation), and UV-C (– nm) radiation.

UV-A radiation is largely unaffected by ozone. Although it represents only a tiny fraction of the atmosphere, ozone is crucial for life on Earth.

Ozone in the stratosphere—a layer of the atmosphere between 15 and 50 kilometers (10 and 31 miles) above us—acts as a shield to protect Earth’s surface from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation. From the discovery of ozone in the eighteenth century, through the late twentieth-century international agreements to protect humanity from the destruction of ozone in the stratosphere, Guy P.

Brasseur traces the evolution of our scientific knowledge on air quality issues and stratospheric chemistry. CHAPTER STRATOSPHERIC OZONE. The stratospheric ozone layer, centered at about 20 km above the surface of the Earth (Figure ), protects life on Earth by absorbing UV radiation from the this chapter we examine the mechanisms controlling the abundance of ozone in the stratosphere and the effect of human influence.

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. In this video we explain why the stratosphere gets warmer with altitude, and along the way learn some radiation physics as well as uncovering the significance of ozone and the hole in the ozone layer.

The ozone layer or ozone shield is a region of Earth's stratosphere that absorbs most of the Sun's ultraviolet radiation.

It contains high concentration of ozone (O 3) in relation to other parts of the atmosphere, although still small in relation to other gases in the ozone layer contains less than 10 parts per million of ozone, while the average ozone concentration in Earth's.

In another demonstration of the effects of a world without an ozone layer, Newman's group exposed a basil plant to intense UV radiation. In a lab at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, they set up a special lamp that simulates the intensity of sunlight when testing satellite hardware.

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.By the year in the simulation, 17% of the Earth’s protective ozone layer vanished.

Holes in the ozone layer formed not just over antarctica—as they currently do each spring—but over the arctic, too. Bythe ultraviolet (uV) index, the measure of the sunburn-causing radiationFile Size: KB.As ionizing radiation moves through matter its energy is deposited through interactions with the electrons of the absorber.

The result of an interaction between the radiation and the absorbing species is removal of an electron from an atom or molecular bond to form radicals and excited species.
