Methyl Bromide Uv Radiation
627 wordsOzone is a form of oxygen that is a human-made pollutant in the troposphere but a naturally produced, essential component in the stratosphere, which encircles our planet some 6 to 28 miles above the surface. The stratosphere contains a layer of ozone that shields the surface from much of the ultraviolet radiation coming from the sun. If ozone was to disappear from the stratosphere Earth would be uninhabitable for most organisms. The primary cause for this substantial ozone loss is a group of com...
