      The so-called “ozone hole” is a region in the ozone layer generally located over Antarctica, although it moves around with changes in the Circumpolar Vortex. Ozone level is lowest during the Southern Hemisphere winter, at which time ozone concentration is approximately 1/3 of the global average. It is an area of thinning due to natural causes.   Back in the 's we were warned that the CFC's (gas) used in our air conditioning and spray cans was eating a hole in the Ozone layer. If not stopped, the radiation from the sun would give.

    This massive stretch of ozone depletion (hole) is estimated to be about the size of America. Particularly in the antarctic, satellite images were released showing a disturbing thinning of the ozone layer. The phenomenon is what we usually call the Ozone hole, and it was mostly observed over the Antarctic every year during the spring. Efforts to heal the hole in Earth's ozone layer over Antarctica appear to be paying off, according to a new, first-of-its-kind study that looked directly at ozone-destroying chemicals in the.

      If you were around in the s you probably remember the concern about the hole in the ozone layer that protects the Earth from harmful UV rays. This was caused by man-made chemicals known as chloro-fluoro-carbons, or CFCs, escaping from the Earth's surface and heading up into the stratosphere where they reacted with the ozone layer and depleted it.   Life under the hole in the sky For the people of southern Chile, ozone depletion isn't a political issue -- it's a nightmarish reality.

There is now () some evidence that ozone levels there have stabilized and may be recovering since although it is not possible to ascribe the recovery to the ban on HFC because that recovery is not Cited by: 3.

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 are also springtime polar tropospheric ozone depletion. Area of Ozone Hole (millions km. 2) Timeline of Stratospheric Ozone Depletion & Observations. 10 20 30 40 50 Observations or industry data Future projections.

Natural emissions. This timeline highlights the average area of the ozone hole between September 7th and October 13th as observed by NASA spaced-based instruments (see.

They weren’t: The ozone layer had been damaged more than scientists could have imagined before Farman discovered the hole. As word of the ozone hole leaked through the media, it became nothing Author: Erin Blakemore. the thinning of the upper atmosphere ozone layer. Why does the book say there are "two" ozone problems.

because there is a thinning of the upper atmosphere ozone layer and increasing ozone at ground level that produces photo-chemical smog.

CHAPTER 4 A HOLE IN THE SKY: OZONE DEPLETION EARTH'S PROTECTIVE OZONE LAYER. Ozone is a gas naturally present in Earth's atmosphere. Unlike regular oxygen, which contains two oxygen atoms (O 2), ozone contains three oxygen atoms (O 3).A molecule of regular oxygen can be converted to ozone by ultraviolet (UV) radiation, electrical discharge (such as from lightning), or.

A global thinning of the ozone layer results as ozone-rich air from the remaining ozone layer flows into the ozone-poor areas. Minimum ozone levels in the Antarctic decreased steadily throughout the s, and less dramatic decreases have been found above other areas of the world.

In (and again in and ) the hole reached a record. Ozone Hole Watch View the latest status of the ozone layer over the Antarctic. Satellite instruments monitor the ozone layer, and we use their data to create the images that depict the amount of ozone.

"The World We Avoided" This study predicts ozone losses as if nothing had been done to stop them. These "world avoided" maps show computer model. The huge hole in Earth's protective ozone layer reached its maximum this year in September, and this year NASA said it was million square miles wide.

The. The ozone layer is the common term for the high concentration of ozone that is found in the stratosphere between 15 and 30km above the earth’s surface.

It covers the entire planet and protects life on earth by absorbing harmful ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation from the sun. Ozone threat is no laughing matter. (N 2 O) has become the greatest threat to the ozone layer, a new analysis suggests. The ozone-destroying abilities of.

The hole in the ozone layer was first discovered in the s. This layer of the atmosphere protects the Earth from ultraviolet radiation, which can cause skin cancer and cataracts, suppress.

Also forgotten is a long list of truly ridiculous claims, such as the one from Al Gore's book "Earth in the Balance"that, thanks to the Antarctic ozone hole, "hunters now report finding blind.

The Ozone “global crisis” and the media hysteria whipped up by globalist MSM certainly was a trial run for a future larger corporate shake down – a shake down test of public perception, resistance to junk science and doom mongering narratives, public perception to government collusion with the interests selling a “cure” and enriching the small cabal who had interests in the Freon II.

The ozone layer is just starting to heal 30 years after the global effort to reduce it went into effect. In the hole reached its largest size and it is not expected to start to shrink for.

Here’s a rare piece of good news about the environment: The giant hole in the Earth’s protective ozone layer is shrinking and has shrivelled to its .The hole in the ozone layer was perhaps the worst example of mankind’s impact on the planet, but a world-wide campaign against ozone-depleting chemicals has helped repair most of the damage.
