The Production and Control Of Ozone
This article will review current information regarding the ozone layer of Earth’s upper atmosphere, damage being done to the ozone layer related to natural and human activities. Engineering solutions designed to eliminate further depletion of the ozone layer will be presented.
The ozone (O3) layer refers to the layer within Earth’s upper atmosphere lying between 50,000 to 120,000 feet (Ozone layer, 1984, 2127). In forming ozone, ultraviolet radiation of wavelengths between 290 and 320 nanometers are absorbed by oxygen …
