    is important to the evolution of life on Earth and the continued health and survival of life on Earth
    stratospheric ozone layer
    30s
  • Q2
    is caused by anthropogenic factors, such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), and natural factors, such as the melting of ice crystals in the atmosphere at the beginning of the Antarctic spring
    Stratospheric ozone depletion
    30s
  • Q3
    it increases the UV rays that reach the Earth's surface
    how does a decrease in stratospheric ozone affect UV radiation on Earth?
    30s
  • Q4
    can lead to skin cancer and cataracts (eye damage) in humans
    health impacts of UV radiation
    30s
  • Q5
    A family of organic compounds whose properties make them ideal for use in refrigeration, air-conditioning, and aerosols; cause ozone depletion
    Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)
    30s
  • Q6
    chlorine atoms contained in the compounds are highly reactive; they interact with Ozone (O3) by stripping off one Oxygen molecule, leaving behind O2.
    How do CFCs and HCFCs destroy ozone?
