Hey everyone today research will be based or will look more about the effect of ozone layer depletion to the greenhouse and global warming. Here is my research; All other things being equal, and with attachment to the international agreements known as the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer, governments have decided to finally discontinue production of CFCs, halons, carbon tetrachloride, and methyl chloroform. 1. A molecule containing three atoms of oxygen is called...Read More...

Hey everyone ,today will deal on when the meeting day of the preservation of the Ozone but today will be just an introduction but later we will deal more basing on various countries within the continent. The secretary general meeting message of the international day for the preservation was held on various country such as French and other countries, On 16 September 2012 - A quarter-century ago, one of the challenges facing humanity – the thinning of the ozone layer that protects life on...Read More...

Hey everyone today i will research about the effects of the ozone layer depletion to both humans and plants. Here is a research i found for you; Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) This are the primary cause for the ozone layer depletion. Industrial products including solvents, soaps, spray aerosols, insulating foams, and cooling utilities such as refrigerators and air conditioners use these.These substances accumulate in the atmosphere are carried by wind action into the stratosphere. The ODS There...Read More...

Hey everyone ,it is a long time since i posted.Today, my research will be the causes of ozone layer depletion. Ozone is a triatomic form of oxygen (O 3 ), found in the Earth's atmosphere. A mixture of low temperatures, raised chlorine, and bromine concentrations in the upper stratosphere are responsible for the destruction of ozone. The production and emission of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), is the leading cause of ozone layer depletion. CFC's account for almost 80% of the total depletion of...Read More...

Hi everyone today i will be researching on the solution or the ways on how to prevent the ozone layers. METHOND ONE:Avoiding ozone depleting products 1. check your fire extinguishers If halon is the main ingredient,find a hazardous waste centre at which to recycle. 2. Don't buy aerosol products with {CFC} Although CFCs has been banned by many applications,the only way to be sure is to check the label on all your hairsprays,deodorants and household chemicals. 3.Dispose of pre-1995...Read More...

Hi everyone today i will research on how the whole world has avoided controling or they are not preventing the Ozone layer they are just destroying it. Newman and colleagues set out to predict ozone losses as if nothing had been done to stop them. The team started with the Goddard Earth Observing System Chemistry-Climate Model, an earth system model of atmospheric circulation that accounts for variations in solar energy, atmospheric chemical reactions, temperature changes and winds, and...Read More...

Hi everyone, There are four zones in the atmosphere, they include; Troposphere. Stratosphere. Mesosphere. Thermosphere. The troposphere It extends from the earth's surface up to about 6 miles or 10 km in altitude.It is the lowest layer.Almost all human activities occur under the troposphere.The tallest mountain on the planet,Mt.Everest,is only about 5.6 miles [9 km] high.The troposphere is the lowest portion of the atmosphere and where nearly all weather takes place.It contains 75%...Read More...

The ozone enigma.

Angela Mukami (Sweetwaters)
Hi everyone, The ozone enigma ,is simply asking what is causing a hole over the south pole in the atmosphere's ozone layer.Anxious form of oxygen,ozone impairs vision and breathing when it occurs in smog.But in the upper atmosphere,12 to 30 miles above the ground,it protects life on earth by intercepting the sun's damaging ultraviolet radiation. Over the years this protective layer of the ozone has become thinner each spring over the south pole.From 1979 to the present a hole has deepened,...Read More...

Ozone layer absorb acertain wavelengths which are destructive to any living organism.[Ultra violent rays are absorbs by the ozone of the atmosphere before reaching the earth earth surface ] Ozone occurs in two layers of the atmosphere.The closest layer to the earth' s surface is the troposphere.''Bad'' or ground-level ozone is an air pollutant i.e harmful to breathe and it damages trees,crops and other vegetation. (1) It is amain ingredient of urban smog.The troposphere extends to a level...Read More...

Hi, everyone.My research for this cycle will be looking more information about the ozone layer.I want to learn more about the benefits of the ozone layer to both the atmosphere and the earth surface, causes, and problems it leads when destroyed and ways or how to prevent it. The reason ,I want to research this is because many people have no knowledge about the ozone and its benefits.Read More...
