In the absence of other changes, stratospheric ozone Ozone Layer Depletion and Its Effects: A Review Sivasakthivel.T and saltybreezeandpinetrees.com Kumar Reddy. International Journal of Environmental Science and Development, Vol.2, No.1, February chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) could destroy ozone in the. Year-to-year fluctuations in area and depth are caused by variations in stratospheric temperature and circulation. Colder conditions result in a larger area and lower ozone values in the center of the hole. The ozone hole opened the world’s eyes to the global effects of human activity on the saltybreezeandpinetrees.com: Rebecca Lindsey.

Ozone Depletion The Ozone Layer Figure 1. The ozone molecule is comprised of three oxygen atoms covalently bonded. “Ozone” by UCAR (Randy Russell) is licensed under CC BY-SA. Ozone (O 3) is a gaseous molecule that occurs in different parts of the atmosphere (Figure 1).It is very reactive chemically and is dangerous to plant and animal life when present in the lower portions of the Author: Matthew R. Fisher. data and found that stratospheric ozone had decreased greatly since the s. In , the scientists published an article in Nature an-nouncing that stratospheric ozone over Antarctica was reduced 40% in September, the end of the austral winter. The Antarctic ozone hole, as it came to be known, made depletion of. the ozone layer a real and.

Ozone depletion consists of two related events observed since the late s: a steady lowering of about four percent in the total amount of ozone in Earth's atmosphere (the ozone layer), and a much larger springtime decrease in stratospheric ozone around Earth's polar regions. The latter phenomenon is referred to as the ozone saltybreezeandpinetrees.com are also springtime polar tropospheric ozone depletion. Because of a growing concern over stratospheric ozone depletion and its attendant dangers, a ban was imposed on the use of CFCs in aerosol-spray dispensers in the late s by the United States, Canada, and the Scandinavian saltybreezeandpinetrees.com , 93 nations agreed, as part of the Montreal Protocol (established ), to end production of ozone-depleting chemicals by the end of the 20th century.

Manufacturers thought the chemicals were the panacea to their manufacturing headaches because CFCs emitted no odors, were stable, were not flammable or toxic and could be manufactured cheaply. Unfortunately, this book can't be printed from the OpenBook.

Protection Against Depletion of Stratospheric Ozone by Chlorofluorocarbons () Chapter: ALTERNATIVES FOR THE CONTROL OF CHLOROFLUOROCARBON EMISSIONS AND OPTIONS FOR THEIR IMPLEMENTATION. Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and their effect on the atmosphere. Chlorofluorocarbons or CFCs (also well-known as Freon) are non-toxic, non-flammable and non-carcinogenic.

the damage to the. Jun 30,  · What effect do chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) have on the stratosphere. Within the stratosphere they prevent 97% of the sun's UV radiation from reaching Earth. Chlorine atoms released from this molecule catalyze the breakdown of stratospheric ozone.

CFCs affect the rotation of Earth. CFCs in the stratosphere generate air currents. Ozone Holes. British scientists at Halley Bay, Antarctica, thought their instruments were malfunctioning when they started recording low ozone amounts in the ozone layer above Antarctica in They had been measuring ozone in the Antarctic atmosphere since and had never before seen the levels drop so much.

Why would ozone levels have. John Willoughby, in Plant Engineer's Reference Book (Second Edition), Chlorofluorocarbons. Chlorofluorocarbons or CFCs used to be used in the manufacture of a range of plastic insulants, including polyurethanes, phenolics, polyisocyanurates and extruded polystyrenes.

Stratospheric Ozone and Climate Issues. However, it was not known at the beginning of their use, the complex reaction that CFCs have on the earth’s climate. Originally published inthis report explores early research into the effect that CFCs have on the environment and provides Book Edition: 1st Edition.

This guide lists information sources which deal with the deleterious effect of halocarbons (fluorocarbons, chlorocarbons, and chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)) on the stratospheric ozone layer which shields the earth and its inhabitants from excessive ultraviolet radiation from the sun.

Chlorofluorocarbons decrease stratospheric ozone when they are hit with intense UV radiation from the from the sun that breaks the CFCs into chlorine and carbon atoms.

In a two step chemical reaction, each newly freed chlorine atom can split an ozone molecule and then ready itself to split another one. Chlorofluorocarbon definition is - any of several simple gaseous compounds that contain carbon, chlorine, fluorine, and sometimes hydrogen, that are used as refrigerants, cleaning solvents, and aerosol propellants and in the manufacture of plastic foams, and that are believed to be a major cause of stratospheric ozone depletion —abbreviation CFC.

Ozone, while a minority constituent in Earth's atmosphere, is responsible for most of the absorption of UVB radiation. When stratospheric ozone levels decrease, higher levels of UVB reach the Earth’s surface. UV-driven phenolic formation in tree rings has dated the start of ozone depletion in northern latitudes to the late s.

What is the effect of chlorofluorocarbons. it was found out that CFCs react with the ozone gas in use of these chemicals is being stopped around the world because of their harmful effect. “Ozone depleting substances are the substances such as chlorofluorocarbons, halons, carbon tetrachloride, hydrofluorocarbons, etc.

that are responsible for the depletion of ozone layer.” Following is the list of some of the main ozone depleting substances and the sources from where they are released.

Jan 19,  · Chemists considered the reactions that create and destroy ozone as far back as in the s. However, only in the s did we start to consider the effect humans might have on the ozone saltybreezeandpinetrees.com particular, scientists identified man-made chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) as.

The stratospheric ozone layer is Earth’s “sunscreen” – protecting living things from too much ultraviolet radiation from the sun. The emission of ozone depleting substances has been damaging the ozone layer.

But through domestic and international action, the ozone layer is. S. Yvon-Lewis, J.H. Butler, in Encyclopedia of Atmospheric Sciences (Second Edition), Synopsis. Anthropogenic halocarbons such as chlorofluorocarbons, CCl 4, and CH 3 CCl 3 are largely responsible for the observed depletion of stratospheric ozone, yet there is a contribution by gases that are both naturally and anthropogenically produced.

Of the naturally produced halocarbons, CH 3 Br.CFCs affect the ozone layer by destroying ozone molecules. CFCs, or chlorofluorocarbons, are normally stable molecules, but when UV rays strike them, they are broken down.
