HELLO GUYS.Today I will be looking at the ways in which the ozone is declining and also ozone depletion.
- scientists had found a hole in the planet’s ozone layer over Antarctica Decrease in temparatures , increase in the level of chlorine and bromine gases in the upper stratosphere are many of the reasons that result to ozone layer depletion. But the one which is the most significant reason for ozone layer depletion is the production and emission of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). This is what occurs to almost 80 percent of the total ozone layer depletion.Effects of ozone layer depletion
There are some possible effects of the ozone layer depletion on the earth’s environment and also on the plants and animals. The depletion of ozone layer allows the entrance of UV ray selated and environmental issues.
Skin Cancer: exposure to UV rays from sun can lead to increased risk for developing of several types of skin cancers. Malignant melanoma, basal and squamous cell carcinoma are the ones which are very common cancers caused by exposure to UV rays.
Eye Damage: UV rays are harzardous for our eyes too. Direct exposure to UV rays can lead to Cataract problems, and also Photokeratitis or snow blindness.We should therefore try to conserve the ozone layer in which if destroyed can cause a lot of harm.reference;https://www.scientificamerican...is-still-declining1/
