Short Answer: The ozone layer protects the DNA of all surface dwelling life, by absorbing UltraViolet-B from our Sun.
The ozone layer is the product of very short wave Ultraviolet light (UV-B) breaking apart oxygen molecules. When ozone is formed, it serves to block energetic UV (UV-B) that other molecules don't, and acts to moderate day / night temperature swings a little bit.
Ozone absorbs UV-B, which would otherwise damage our DNA, and the DNA of all surface dwellers on Earth (including phytoplankton in the oceans). This absorption of UV-B or more energetic light breaks the ozone down into an oxygen molecule and a single oxygen atom. A few of these fragments reassemble as ozone. But primarily UV-B is required to break apart more oxygen to make replacement ozone.
The ozone layer is like a blanket that shields Earth (not just the living things). It is a "greenhouse gas" that moderates day / night temperature swings, and allows the "heat" of the nitrogen and oxygen at altitude to be radiated away (both up and down).
Diseases that increase as the ozone layer gets thinner...
Ozone layer contains ozone in it. Therefore, it is named so.
Ozone layer means a layer of ozone. It is in stratosphere.
The problem of ozone layer is the ozone hole. The ozone hole is the lowering of concentration of ozone layer.
Ozone is a layer which protects us. Actually ozone is just a gas, ozone layer is the layer.
damage to ozone layer is called ozone depletion. It is thinning of ozone layer.
Earth has a layer of ozone. It is present as the ozone layer.
Ozone layer is not a problem. Absence of ozone layer is a problem.
There are no risks of ozone layer. Hoever if there is no ozone layer,then the risks are there.
Ozone layer is not harmful. Absence of ozone layer is harmful.
The ozone is a part of ozone layer. This layer is present in the stratosphere.
Ozone layer is a layer of ozone molecules. It is situated within stratospheric layer.
The layer containing the highest concentration of ozone is the stratosphere. In this layer, most of the ozone is present as the ozone layer.
The layer of gases that surround the atmosphere is ozone. It is present as the ozone layer.
There are various layers included in the ozone layer. One of the layer containing the ozone layer is the stratospheric layer.
Ozone is there in ozone layer. It is present in stratosphere.
Earth and Venus have a protective ozone layer. These planets have ozone molecules in ozone layer.
Ozone accumplations are found in the ozone layer. This ozone layer is a layer of this gas. It is found in the atmosphere.
The ozone layer is in the stratosphere. It is a pool of ozone molecules.
Holes in ozone layer is the thinning of ozone layer. It is caused by CFC's.
Ozone layer is not dangerous. The absence of ozone layer is dangerous.
Ozone layer is the layer of ozone. Humans are altering it by CFC's.
Ozone is concentrated in the ozone layer of the atmosphere. the layer of atmosphere is stratosphere.
The layer of atmosphere containing ozone is the ozone layer. This layer is present inside the stratosphere layer of atmosphere.
The upper layer of the atmosphere is formed by ozone layer. This is a layer of ozone gas.
The ozone layer is a single layer. So there is no point of WHICH ozone layer.
