What can be done to prevent depletion of the ozone?

Many things can be done to prevent depletion of the Ozone (Ozone Layer) \n. \n(a little background...) Ozone is comprised of 3 oxygen atoms, known as O 3 . When we hear the term Oxygen, it is usually referring to the Oxygen that we breathe, known as O 2 . O 2 is a necessary component for life (al (MORE)

Depletion of the Ozone?

CFC gases which are pollutants are responsible for the depletion ofozone layer. CFC convert ozone to oxygen and make it useless forthe absorption of UV radiation.

What can prevent ozone depletion?

Ozone depletion is a serious threat to human race in the recent times. Ozone layer which protects us from the harmful ultraviolet rays of sun is thinning and thus the harmful rays are coming towards the earth and thus causing problems like skin cancer in humans. Moreover problems like floods, global (MORE)

What is the ozone depletion?

Ozone depletion is the process where ozone holes are created in theozone layer. It is caused due to the action of chloro-floro-carbonson the ozone molecule to break it down to oxygen.

Where does ozone depletion?

Ozone depletion is the process where ozone holes are created in theozone layer. It is caused due to the action of chloro-floro-carbonson the ozone molecule to break it down to oxygen.It is majorlyconcentrated over Antarctica's atmosphere.

How can you prevent depletion of the ozone layer?

The ozone layer is no longer being damaged. CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) used in aerosols and fridges during the 20th century damaged the ozone layer and these chemicals will stay in the atmosphere for another 50 years. The 1987 Montreal Agreement meant that all countries in the world agreed to stop u (MORE)

What has already been done to prevent ozone depletion?

One set of candidate molecules was identified and being ozone depleters, and those molecules were banned in an agreement between all first-world countries. The repercussions of changing away from these very stable compounds, compounds that *only* can decay in the ozone layer, are non-trivial and on- (MORE)

How is ozone depleted?

See " What is causing the depletion of the ozone layer? " in the "Related questions" section below.

How big is the hole in the ozone layer near Antarctica what steps are being taken to prevent ozone layer depletion?

The ozone hole, and its size varies by time of year. No point in answering that part of the question. As to what is being done to prevent ozone layer depletion, we are asking silly questions on the internet. So far we have banned CFCs, which have been shown to deplete ozone (Nature also makes som (MORE)

What is depleting ozone?

The biggest depleter is UV-B or more energetic radiation from our Sun, but the nature and amount of sunlight is not changing, so... Second is water vapor, which both blocks one path of ozone production, and prevides a decay path for ozone. Next is likely chlorine from various molecules that are st (MORE)

How ozone is depleted?

Ozone depletion is the process where ozone holes are created in theozone layer. It is caused due to the action of chloro-floro-carbonson the ozone molecule to break it down to oxygen. It is caused dueto thge inhuman activities.

Is Ozone depletion thickening the ozone layer?

No, depletion means thinning. The ozone layer is being depleted by chlorofluorocarbons which decomposes in the presence of short wavelength ultraviolet radiation from the sun. the chlorine radical produce in this reaction reacts with the ozone. The oxygen atoms present in the stratosphere reacts (MORE)

What is ozon depletion?

See " What is the depletion of the ozone layer? " in the "Related questions" section below.

What is the main cause of ozone depletion?

The main reason for ozone depletion are the chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) found in everyday products such as refrigerator coolant, fire extinguishers, and in aerosol cans. These were released into the atmosphere during the second half of the twentieth century and their effects are still being felt. Chl (MORE)

What are the problems with the depletion of the ozone?

Depletion of ozone creates holes in ozone layer. Ozone layer blocksabout 97% of the the total received by the earth. Ozone depletionwill expose earth to harmful radiations and will burn the life. Thetemperature will increase and make earth inhabitable place.

What chemicals are involved in ozone depletion?

Chlorofluorocarbons describe a variety of chemicals involved in ozone depletion. These chemicals have been used in propellants and refrigerants for years until they were phased out in the 70's and 80's. Two common chemicals used in refrigerators, dichlorofloromethane (R-12) and dichloroflourometh (MORE)

What are the ways to overcome ozone depletion?

Limit private vehicledriving A very easy way to control ozone depletion would be to limit orreduce the amount of driving as vehicular emissions eventuallyresult in smog which is a culprit in the deterioration of the ozonelayer. Car pooling, taking public transport, walking, using abicycle would li (MORE)

Is ozone depletion positive or negative?

Ozone depletion is negative in terms of the health of creatures in the Antarctic. There are also positive feedbacks to our environment in terms of less green house gas.

Does ozone cause ozone depletion?

No. Less ozone would cause less depletion, if that were the case. We have less ozone each year, and the rate of depletion does not correlate with the amount we have. See the related questions section below.

What can you do about ozone depletion?

Ozone is depleting because. CFC gases which are pollutants areresponsible for the depletion of ozone layer. CFC convert ozone tooxygen and make it useless for the absorption of UV radiation. So, we can stop using CFC gases which are used in refrigerants andair conditioners.

How can you prevent the ozone depletion?

Many countries have entered in to a pact to stop harmful chemicalsthat can destroy the ozone layer. Environmental awareness should beincreased in order to save the ozone layer.

What ozone depletion can do?

The ozone is the ONLY thing protecting us from the sun's harmful ultra violet rays, without it we will have too much exposure to vitamin D, and can develop skin cancer.

How do you prevent the ozone layer from depleting?

Basically by stopping pollution. It's very simple. By stopping all this pollution gathering in the atmosphere, the ozone would be healthy and safe. Not only the ozone, but humanity and other living organisms in the environment.

What could you do to prevent ozone depletion?

There are various steps we could take to prevent the depletion ofozone layer. Since most of it is caused by chlorofluorocarbonscarbons which are present in aerosols, deodorants etc. So byreducing the use of these chemicals, ozone layer can be protected.
