" (edf. org) Science is a body of knowledge containing various streams such as physics, chemistry, biology etc". Its sub-behavioral concept is Technology, which has made tremendous changes in the modernized world. Climate isa field of the science. Climate is a natural consequence in which all the human being sexist". (Technology and Environment page 25)". The first ...
  • Continent Size Hole In Earth's Ozone Layer
    843 words
    The Importance of the Ozone " Like an infection that grows more and more virulent, the continent-size hole in Earth's ozone layer keeps getting bigger and bigger" (Beyond Discovery). The ozone is a protective layer that occurs naturally in the stratosphere, 6 to 28 miles in altitude. Each year, since the late 1970's, much of the ozone layer above Antarctica has disappeared, creating what is popularly known as the "ozone hole". This hole now measures about 9 million square miles, nearly the size ...
  • Potential Effects Of A Depleted Ozone Layer
    1,339 words
    The Potential Effects of a Depleted Ozone Layer " And God said, let there be light and there was light and then God saw the light, that it was good ' (Genesis 1: 3-4). Undoubtedly, light is good. Without light man could not survive. Light is the ultimate cosmic force in this universe allowing man to progress and flourish. In the form of heat, light from the sun warms the Earth. Light, also, is the single most important factor influencing the growth and development of plants. Photosynthesis, a pr...

    1,151 words
    ... an ecosystem a variety of species would be affected. Furthermore, the same oxygen recycled by phytoplankton is breathed by all animals and man himself thus adding to the importance of the threatened oceanic food chain. A weakened ozone umbrella could also have a tremendous impact on wildlife. Moreover, in support of devastating impact on the crops and animals, a diminished ozone layer has been associated with environmental damage and concern. The potential effect on the earth's climate syste...
  • Ozone Layer The Harmful Uv B Radiation
    3,420 words
    OzoneOzone (O3) is a molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms, similar to the oxygenwe breathe (O2), however oxygen consists of only two oxygen atoms. In thestratosphere, a region high up in the upper atmosphere, light rays areresponsible for the breaking down of oxygen (O2), breathable oxygen into its twoseparate oxygen atoms. Lone oxygen atoms are markedly reactive. When a loneoxygen atom comes into contact with a breathable oxygen molecule (O2) itcombines to form ozone (O3). The ozone layer ...
  • Cfcs And Other Ozone
    1,195 words
    ChloroflourocarbonsChloroflourocarbons were discovered in the 1920's by Thomas Midgley, an organic chemist at General Motors Corporation. He was looking for inert, non-toxic, non-flammable compounds with low boiling points that could be used as refrigerants. He found what he was looking for in the form of two compounds: dichlorodifluoromethane (CFC-12) and (CFC-11). In both compounds, different amounts of chlorine and fluorine are combined with methane, which is a combination of carbon and hydro...
  • Ozone Layer Chemical Processes Ozone
    2,579 words
    The Ozone Layer Introduction The ozone layer is one of the most important source of protection that exists on Earth. It is a region of the stratosphere containing a high concentration of ozone, and it prevents a great amount of ultraviolet and other high-energy radiation from penetrating to the earth's surface. The ozone layer has been a security blanket that lies on top of the earth, protecting it from harmful rays, however, humans have abused of the use of CFCs, and other industrial chemicals ...
  • Depletion Of The Ozone Layer
    2,359 words
    The Poisoning of Our Ozone Layer The poisoning of the Earths ozone layer is increasingly attracting worldwide concern for the global environment and the health effects of life on the Planet Earth. There is not just one particular cause for the ozone depletion; the accumulation of different pollutants into our ozone layer has all added up and equaled a worldwide problem. There is not just one effect from the poisoning of the ozone, but instead multiple ramifications from diseases to death. The da...
  • My Paper On The Ozone Layer
    3,424 words
    What Is the Ozone Hype Anyway "The ozone is a pale bluish form of oxygen gas with an odor like chlorine, formed by an electrical discharge in the air" (Webster 185). The first time that I thought about this research narrative was the first time that I read the syllabus for class. My immediate reaction was that I could not believe that we were actually going to write a ten-page narrative. I was never expected to write a paper of this length before and I was unsure if I were going to be able to do...
  • Greenhouse Effect And Ozone Depletion
    1,793 words
    The life in a greenhouse may be a deadly one in the future. Every single day people pollute the environment and the ozone layer cannot withstand all the pollution that takes place. Much of the pollution comes from cars, trucks, factories, and everyday house hold items, such as refrigerators and air conditioners. Holes start to form when the ozone gets to its thinnest point. When this happens, the greenhouse effect then starts up to haunt everyone. The greenhouse effect is the effects the sun has...
  • Upper Ozone Level
    3,213 words
    In 1839, a German scientist Christian Schobein was a professor of chemistry at the University of Basel in Switzerland. In addition to his teaching duties, he regularly performed secret experiments in hopes of finding out which substances make up the Earth's atmosphere. So Schonbein combined and separated a number of liquids and gases. During one of these experiments, Schonbein passed an electric charge thought a glass beaker of water, be noticed a very familiar odor. He first thought it was the ...
