Uvb Radiation The Reaches The Earths Surface
982 wordsOur Radiant Planet- Depletion of the Ozone Layer Ozone is a relatively unstable form of molecular oxygen containing three oxygen atoms produced when upper-atmosphere oxygen molecules are split by ultra violet light. Stratospheric ozone is found in a broad band, extending generally from 15 to 35 km above the earth. Although the ozone layer is surprisingly thin, it acts as a protective shield to the earth, as it filters out most of the harmful solar ultraviolet radiation (in particular UV-B) that ...
Oxygen Atom From The Ozone Molecule
2,131 wordsTHE SCIENCE OF OZONE Ozone, though similar to oxygen chemically, is composed of three molecules of oxygen and is usually blue in color with a very strong odor. The atmosphere contains less ozone than the common oxygen. While out of every ten million air molecules, there exist about two million molecules of normal oxygen and only three molecules of ozone. Most of these ozone molecules are typically concentrated in the Stratosphere, the atmospheric layer that runs roughly from ten km's to about fi...
Oxygen Atoms On The Ozone Molecule
2,327 wordsCfcs Cause Deterioration of the Ozone Layer The deterioration of the ozone layer, caused by Cfcs, endangers the lives of humans'. Cfcs have a diminishing effect on the ozone layer. Furthermore, the deterioration of the ozone cause an increase of Ultraviolet (UV) radiation which can have a negative effect on human skin and eyes. As a writer for newsweek, I have investigated the scenario and found the following information. The earth's atmosphere is a blanket of air that surrounds the planet. This...
One Ozone Molecule
442 wordsChlorofluorocarbons (CFC) is a molecule made of chlorine, fluorine and carbon atoms. It's a stable but dangerous molecule. It used to be used in refrigerators, freezers and aerosol cans. It had been used as coolant in refrigerator propellants in aerosol sprays. It has been used as early as the 1930's. To find out why it's dangerous you first have to understand what Chlorofluorocarbons is. As I stated earlier it's made of chlorine fluorine and carbons. But it's also made of halogens which when co...
Cfc Destruction Of The Ozone Layer
1,315 wordsOzone Depletion Case for " Ignoring the Facts" Ozone forms a layer of the earth's atmosphere that protects us from the sun's deadly ultraviolet rays. During the last decade there has been a scare set forth by environmental enthusiasts that Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) destroy the ozone layer. Although there has been no evidence of any CFC destruction of the ozone layer there is an international stoppage on using CFCs, as well as an executive order set forth by Clinton to limit the sell and use of ...
Ozone Layer Chemical Processes Ozone
2,579 wordsThe 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 ...
3 The Result Of Ozone Layer Depletion
1,351 wordsAtmospheric ozone layer depletion is a serious problem currently facing the world. The ozone layer protects humans, animals, and plants from harmful ultraviolet rays. Money and time are being spent on ozone repair, but the problem still exists. The ozone layer is a region of the stratosphere containing ozone, or O 3 gas. The ozone layer is essential to both plant and animal life on earth because it protects the surface from dangerous ultraviolet light. However, industrial and domestic chemicals ...
Most Deadly Type Of Skin Cancer
673 wordsThe ozone layer shields the earth from most of the harmful radiation and light comming from the sun. The ozone reflects and absorbs the ultraviolet rays that try to come in. Without this kind of protection, all living things will be effected by these UV rays. Skin cancer develops in most living mammals as a cause of an overabundance of the suns ultraviolet rays. The ozone layer is located in the earth's stratosphere. The ozone layer is located from about fifteen-to-thirty kilometers above the ea...
