Ozone Layer discovery
Ozone was first discovered and isolated by the German-Swiss chemist Christian Friedrich Schönbein in 1839.
Regulates the temperature
Ozone shield located in the earth’s stratosphere is able to absorb about 98 percent of the harmful ultraviolet radiation which helps in regulating the heat.
Ozone layer depletion
Certain factors have led to a hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica and that may gradually increase the surface UV in parts of New Zealand, Chile, Australia, Argentina, and South Africa.
Ozone Layer recovery
The ozone layer was damaged by a few substances known as chlorofluorocarbons. If people put an end to producing ozone-destroying substances then it may be capable of recovering by 2050.
Ozone layer healed
During the beginning of the lockdowns imposed world-wide owing to COVID-19, the depleted ozone layer over the arctic healed itself and is now closed completely, as per the UN WMO.
Good and Bad ozone
Good ozone is ozone in the ozone layer of the atmosphere, 10-20 miles high whereas Bad Ozone occurs near the earth surface in a layer called the troposphere. It is harmful to breathe and cause damages
