Why are there holes in the atmosphere?
The hole in the ozone layer, if this is what you are referring to, is an annual event that occurs after the long night period of the Antarctic winter. It is due, primarily from a lack of sunlight causing ozone to be continuously made.
Ozone is a very unstable gas and must consistently be absorbing the sun's incoming radiation in order to exist. When the winter months start and the sun disappears for the next few months, the ozone layer starts to decay. When the sun returns, the hole disappears within a few weeks.
A smaller, but similar event occurs over the Arctic during it's winter period.
It is believed that CFC's that are produced for refrigeration are adding to this issue.
The atmosphere is very dull at the start of the book ' Holes ' because Stanley Yelnats is having a miserable life. He has been cursed and is know realizing how bad it is. He then gets very upset about going to a Camp which is for bad boys, but after he is transferred to there Stanley then realizes that it isn't as bad as he thinks. The atmosphere is builds up halfway through the…
it is the factory workers, as i used to work in a cheese factory the stab holes with a machine these days to make it look like it because the difference in the atmosphere means that the gas can't form holes any more and to keep the tradition they put irregular and different sized holes in by machine. mr w. kindman cheesearama mueseum Birmingham
There are actually two areas we consider holes in the ozone layer. These occur naturally at the end of each winter over each pole. They are due primarily because of the lack of sunlight reacting with the oxygen in the atmosphere. These holes have been occurring, as far as we can tell, since oxygen was in our atmosphere. The largest hole that we know of occurred in 1859. See the related questions section below.
The Ozone in the atmosphere is created by sunlight high in the earths atmosphere. It is destroyed naturally with time so there is a balance of Ozone in the upper atmosphere. However certain man made chemicals that we have put into the atmosphere destroy the Ozone faster and the whole Ozone level all round the earth is depleted, letting more UV radiation through to the Earth's surface. This global Ozone depletion results in holes at…
No - Definition for an atmosphere is a layer of gases that may surround a material body of sufficient mass, and that is held in place by the gravity of the body. Note: While there have been some papers written on the notion of black hole atmosphere, their employment differs widely. Rather the concept of gravitationally held matter for black holes is better represented as the ergosphere of a black hole.
The holes in the ozone layer are not actual holes. They are thinning areas found about 23 degrees away from the poles of our planet. They occur, and have occurred for centuries. The primary cause for each of these holes is natural. The thinning of these areas occurs because the sun is unable to hit that portion of the atmosphere during their respective solar winters. The largest "Hole" is believed to have occurred in 1856…
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. Ozone layer is depletion is happening in the stratosphere of the earth's atmosphere. It is majorly concentrated over Antarctica's atmosphere.
