There is no clear evidence that the ozone layer is monotonically disappearing. Sometimes the hole is larger than others, and we believe the Kyoto protocol (banning CFCs) limited the damage we were doing to the ozone layer. Eventually those CFCs will leave the tropopause, but there will still be an ozone hole. In the winter at the poles, there is little UV to make new ozone. So if there is any water vapor, ozone will be naturally depleted.

How and why is the ozone dissapering?

Ozone depletion is the process where ozone holes are created in the ozone layer. It is caused due to the action of chloro-floro-carbons on the ozone molecule to break it down to oxygen. It is disappearing due to in human activities.

It will take a long time. But if you stop CFC's, the disappearing will stop too.

What is the ozone layer of troposphere?

the ozone layer is actually in the stratosphere. when that layer gets depleted, the UV rays penetrate into the troposphere and eventually form ozone there. the ozone formed there is the tropospheric ozone. this ozone however has a short photochemical life in the troposphere and thus disintegrates too fast to consolidate its structure.

What is the country that is not protected by the ozone layer?

The ozone layer is a cover of ozone gas all over the earth's atmosphere so we cannot say that a country is not protected by it. However due to the intense depletion of this layer, its cover over the Antarctic region is being disappearing day by day. This may be the cause why there is less protection of ozone over the Antarctic region.

Why is disappearing ozone a problem?

Ozone disappearing is a problem as it allows UV rays to allow enter the earth. They are fatal for life on earth.
