How does water vapor cause ozone depletion?
Water vapor is the main source of global warming. This then causes ozone depletion.
Water vapor is the man cause of global warming. It then causes ozone depletion.
Water vapor is the main reason of global warming. This global warming can thus cause ozone depletion.
A no of factors such as the global warming, the increase in the amount of the pollutant gases and the water vapor can cause ozone depletion
Yes, water vapour can cause the destruction of ozone layer but in an indirect manner. Water vapour causes global warming which thus causes ozone depletion.
The "greenhouse effect" is an increase in CO2 and water vapor in the atmosphere. Depletion of the Ozone Layer is a decrease in ozone in the upper atmosphere.
Water's excessive use may cause various problems. Ozone depletion is one of them.
What types of chemicals pollutants are responsible for the ozone depletion and where do these come from?
water vapor, oxidized
Global warming affects the ozone *everywhere*, not just over Antarctica. It lofts more water vapor. It softens the thermocline below the ozone layer that keeps most water vapor out of the ozone layer. Water vapor both blocks ozone production, and provides a pathway for ozone destruction.
Ozone depleting substances, such as water vapor, CFCs (both natural and manmade), and more.
There are factors responsible for ozone layer depletion. Volcanic eruptions, car's exhaust, greenhouse gases, water vapor, CFC's etc are responsible.
The water vapor molecule has he highest potential for global warming. It thus causes ozone depletion.
N, it can't protect. It facilitates ozone depletion.
Or do wind pattern changes carry water vapor and other contaminants, and further deplete ozone?
There are lots of them. Starting with water vapor, proceeding into any molecule with chlorine or bromine in them, and more.
They help deliver water vapor to high altitudes. They produce new compounds that may not be assessed for their effect on the ozone layer.
Water vapor. Chlorofluorocarbons. Insecticides. See "What is causing the depletion of the ozone layer?" in the "Related questions" section below.
Common household activities contribute to ozone hole. Water vapor being released also causes this.
NOx is the byproduct of water vapor blocking one path of ozone production. An oxygen atom is temporarily stored in an unstable state on a nitrogen molecule (N2O*). Encountering a water molecule stabilizes the NOx. NOx does not itself decay ozone, but acts as a "getter" for water vapor (further protecting ozone). NOx is like the dead body for a stillborn ozone molecule.
Water vapor. Older non-flammable fire-fighting foams and propellants, insecticides and herbicides. Chloro-fluorocarbons (also known as CFCs). See "What is causing the depletion of the ozone layer?" in the "Related questions" section below.
Water vapor, chlorofluorocarbons, and bromofluorocarbons.
Ozone has a direct affect on water. Ozone depletion causes water organisms to die.
The ozone layer is believed to have issues with CFC's. Water vapor, the most common greenhouse gas, also affects the levels of ozone in our atmosphere. The issue of greenhouse gases though, is not normally connected to the concept of ozone depletion.
Ozone does affect the water vapor. Ozone causes global warming, which increases water level.
Most ozone depletion occurs without the intervention of Man, or Man-sourced compounds. In roughly the order they destroy ozone, by volume / mass: # UV-B or more energetic radiation. # water vapor (which both blocks one path of ozone production by making NOx, and by adding a decay path by making H2O2). # time and temperature (ozone decays naturally). # compounds / elements that derive from natural sources (solar wind other than protons, volcanos et… Read More
Depletion in the daytime would only be noticeable between days, or over years. There is always less ozone overnight. Ozone is made during the day, and decays when there is no UV-C to make more. On the other hand, there are some ozone destruction pathways that require light in order to complete the catalytic cycles... for example chlorine and bromine do require light (water vapor does not). Depletion is NOT a "short term" thing, that… Read More
The ozone depletion has various effects on natural resources. Resource like water cycle gets disturbed.
This has been answered in other categories: # Water vapor (H2O) - it both blocks one route of ozone formation (by stabilizing N2O* which could otherwise form ozone), and it provides a new decay path for ozone (by forming H2O2). # CFCs - photocatalytically breaks ozone down, and hangs around a while to do it again, and again.
Greenhouse gases are largely attributed to the depletion of Earth's ozone layer - known as the greenhouse effect which was first discovered by Joseph Fourier in 1824. The four major gases within the greenhouse gases are: water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane and ozone. For more information about greenhouse gases and it's effect on Earth's environment, check the 'Related Links' below.
The natural processes that cause an ozone hole are (in rough order): # time and temperature (ozone is unstable, and decays back to oxygen) # water vapor (works without applied UV, as it adds a decay path for ozone) #2 is why the Antarctic ozone hole is larger than the Arctic ozone hole. Earth's magnetic field is currently aligned to direct positive ions of the solar wind to the south pole. Most of these are… Read More
Consuming oxygen that took months to diffuse to that level, adding water vapor to the atmosphere (water vapor depletes ozone), and heating the atmosphere a little bit, which lets more water vapor cross over into the ozone layer.
Because they are interested in whether water vapor, ozone or oxygen in a plants atmosphere are there.
Water vapor. Please see the related questions section below.
The ozone layer affects the water cycle. Actually depletion of it affects the cycle.
yes it can affect. It has great potential of destroying ozone.
Depletion is depletion, everywhere. The size and duration of the ozone hole is a symptom of both how much water surface is located below it, and contaminants that require visible light to be photoactivated into ozone destruction. Don't be distracted by the size of the ozone hole.
Ozone production requires something that is not oxygen, to hold onto a single oxygen atom for some period of time, until an oxygen molecule can come along and become ozone. When this something encounters water vapor, the "temporary arrangement" become permanent. So water vapor blocks the production of some ozone. Water vapor presents a decay path for ozone, by production of hydroxyl radicals (essentially O3 + H2O -> O2 + H2O2). This does not need… Read More
Ozone and hydrogen do not react directly, in general. Hydrogen does get oxidized to water vapor, and water vapor does destroy ozone to make hydrogen peroxide. It just takes a couple of intermediate steps.
# Dumping water vapor and consuming oxygen at high altitudes (aircraft). # Dumping CFCs to atmosphere (still in the air since the early 1900s, older appliances, third-world countries).
Chlorine from ocean water vapor is the primary issue. Second would be a lack of sunlight, which is why the issue only occurs during the winter months above each pole.
Ozone depletion is a long term decrease in atmospheric ozone in the region above the lower troposphere. Its symptoms include more UV-B arriving at Earth's surface, and a larger, longer-lasting, sooner-starting ozone "hole". (The ozone "hole" itself is a natural phenomenon. Global warming (better called "global climate change") is a long term increase in sea levels, decrease in land-supported ice flows, and increase in hurricane / typhoon intensity and/or frequency. Ozone depletion may or may… Read More
Ozone is broken down fairly quickly by water vapor. Ozone (or at least lone oxygen atoms) will oxidize solar wind constituents to form hydroxyl ions and eventually water vapor. Otherwise, no, the top of the troposphere is cold enough that water vapor freezes and falls back down, so that an ozone layer can form (and stay at higher concentrations).
Ozone can be decomposed by absorbing an ultraviolet (UV) photon. This is how ozone protects us from UV light. Ozone is unstable, and decays with time. Ozone is photocatalytically decayed by chlorine or bromine. Some ozone production is blocked by water vapor, and water vapor also provides a decay path for ozone.

Photosynthesis removes water vapor from the air (and / or water from the soil), and releases oxygen. Water vapor both blocks one path of ozone formation and increases the rate of ozone decay. Oxygen is required to make ozone from. ---- Photosynthesis keeps the ozone layer safe because it uses up all of the carbon dioxide that is damaging it. Humans breathe out carbon dioxide and take in oxygen, plants with are the number cause… Read More
Since ozone depletion is Man caused by definition: - burning of plant matter (incineration of garbage, burning forests) - release of chemicals that are / were used for refrigerants, blowing agents, propellants, solvents, fire retardants, and pesticides. - addition of water vapor to the atmosphere (combustion by-product).
The main compounds released when burning gas and oil, are water vapor, carbon dioxide/CO2, methane, and nitrous oxide. These compounds are contributing to the greenhouse effect and depletion of the ozone layer.
Ozone layer: water vapor, chlorofluorocarbons, stuff like that. Tropospheric ozone: NOx, VOC
Factories, as spewers of water vapor and / or waste heat, reduce the thermocline that keeps water vapor out of the ozone layer, where it will reduce the equilibrium value of ozone. Most factories do not emit significant water vapor or waste heat, however... all (non-solar, non-tidal, non-wind) power plants do. And they power the factories.
