  The ozone layer helps to protect life from harmful ultraviolet radiation. Find out what caused the ozone hole, and how the Montreal Protocol sought to put an end to ozone depletion. Facts About the Ozone Layer. The word "ozone" means smelly in Greek because the gas has a strong odor. CFC molecules are highly stable and can last for up to years. Unfortunately, this gives them plenty of time to find their way to the ozone layer. One chlorine molecule from a CFC can destroy up to , ozone molecules.

The ozone layer is a layer of ozone high up in the Earth's atmosphere stratosphere, between approximately 10 kilometres and 50 kilometres above Earth’s exact amount of ozone varies, depending on the seasons and the location. This layer absorbs between 93 and 99 per cent of the ultraviolet radiation from the sun. This radiation is dangerous to living organisms on Earth. Index Terms – Bio effects, chlorofluorocarbon, Ozone Layer Depletion, Protection. I. INTRODUCTION The ozone layer is a layer in Earth's atmosphere which contains relatively high concentrations of ozone (O3). This layer absorbs % of the sun's high frequency ultraviolet light, which is potentially damaging to life on earth [1]. Over.

These two compounds in particular are known to react in the stratosphere in a catalytic reaction cycle that ultimately destroys the protective ozone (O 3) layer. The authors found that if a 10,megaton war was to occur, enough of these destructive compounds would be released to cause as much as a 70% reduction in the atmospheric ozone levels. The ozone layer sits between 9 and 22 miles above the Earth. It protects us from ultraviolet radiation. Unlike the hole that developed over the Arctic, the Antarctic ozone hole in the Southern Hemisphere is typically caused by chemicals such as chlorine and bromine migrating into the : Ashe Schow.

Ozone layer or ozonosphere, region of the stratosphere containing relatively high concentrations of ozone, located at altitudes of 12–30 mi (19–48 km) above the earth's in the ozone layer is formed by the action of solar ultraviolet light on oxygen.

The ozone layer prevents most ultraviolet (UV) and other high-energy radiation from penetrating to the earth's surface but ozone layer book. This book is the first comprehensive history of international efforts to protect the ozone layer, the greatest success yet achieved in managing human impacts on the global environment.
