Hello everyone ,this time lets look on ways the ozone layer is linked .They are mainly four namely ;

1.Antarctica  is the only place on earth where its reliably cold enough for an ozone hole to form

2.Southern hemisphere spring is ozone  season

3.The largest ozone holes are often associated with the coldest winters

4.The ozone hole did not cause global warming

Lets deeply look on the first about Antarctica  is the only place on earth where its reliably cold enough for an ozone hole to form.When it comes to the ozone hole ,chlorine is the enemy.The CFCs begin to degrade the chlorine they first get incorporate into variety of smaller molecules that do not directly harm the ozone layer .As shown below2.Southern hemisphere ,spring ozone season.when the sun rises of the end of southern Hemisphere winter. Sunlight degrades these reactive gases . ozone destruction usually peaks rise , and fewer clouds .these highly reactive gases have such  a weak hold on their chlorine atoms that they are only stably in the dark .The largest ozone holes are often associated with the coldest winters .Montreal protocol declines the production and use of ozone chemicals.The  more clouds , the larger the pool of highly reactive chlorine containing gases , and the worse the ozone .The final conversion off .The  more clouds , the larger the pool of highly reactive chlorine containing gases , and the worse 4.The ozone hole did not cause global warming .ozone in the stratosphere provides protect from harmful ultraviolet  radiation .Because the ozone layer normally blocks ultraviolet light
 

The ozone hole has left mark on southern hemisphere summer climate.

The annual dip has led cooling strong-time over past  few decades .These circulation changes have affected climate of the surface summer primarily .More intense surface winds appear to have intensified  the sub-topic

Hello Mary,,,

Fantastic,You have got an informative topic on the ozone.I found that another important linkage involves the way that ozone-depleting substances and greenhouse gases alter certain processes in the atmosphere so as to boost both global warming and stratospheric ozone depletion.

These changes result in a warming of the troposphere and a cooling of the stratosphere.The ozone hole has also led to dramatic changes in Southern Hemisphere weather patterns. These in turn are changing natural ecosystems and food production. These climate changes are likely having a similar if not greater effect than more UV radiation

I found a link that may help you help in the next research;

Hi Mary!  

Good job on this round of research! I enjoyed the photo and details that you’ve added to your post. When people are brought up with the topic of climate change, their first thoughts don’t go directly to the ozone layer even though it plays a strong role. In grade 9, my class did a unit on Geology. I know that the ozone layer absorbs UV radiation and prevents most of it from reaching the earth. If ozone layer becomes thinner, more radiation can pass through the atmosphere to the Earth’s surface. However, I asked my friends whether they’ve learned about it; consequently, they told me that they hadn’t. I was shocked. Thus, congrats for bringing people’s attention to this. I’ve particularly enjoyed how you divided the work. At the beginning of your post, you nicely summarized your findings. Then, you elaborated on those ideas in the paragraph underneath. Well done!

You did a great job describing the ozone layer and its purpose; however, I believe you could have gone in the topic in more depth. It’s true that the ozone layer stratosphere protects the earth from harmful UV radiation! I remember that someone told me that after scientists found the reason behind the ozone hole depleting, they’ve gotten people to reduce consumptions of products with CFCs such as hairspray. Could you elaborate on CFCs? Even so, for your future rounds of research, I would also be interested in you delving into the current state of the ozone layer and the current efforts organizations/governments are taking in attempting to reduce the rapid pace of which the ozone layer is depleting.
