Global Change Biology defines global change as any consistent trend in the environment - past, present or projected - that affects a substantial part of the globe. Examples include: Rising tropospheric, ozone, carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide concentrations; Changing global radiation and stratospheric ozone depletion; Ecosystem and biome collapse. However, given that ozone itself is a greenhouse gas, ozone depletion plays an important role in the global climate system, and vice versa climate change strongly affects the global ozone layer. The effects of climate change on stratospheric processes can be direct (by cooling the stratosphere) or indirect (by influencing stratospheric dynamics.

  Abstract. The recent years’ publications have focused on the influence of the ozone layer depletion (OLD) to the climate change (CC). Some authors suggested that the reasons for it are: (a) the ozone absorbs the solar radiation, and (b) ozone is a greenhouse by: 1. In this chapter we see a global issue – destruction of stratospheric ozone – which results from CFCs and halons, synthetic chemicals. Depletion of stratospheric ozone led to the Montreal Protocol, the first worldwide agreement to protect the environment. The ban on ozone-depleting chemicals is largely working, and the ozone layer is.

The chapters describe how ecosystems from the Antarctic and arctic and from other latitudes respond to global climate change. The book covers papers highlighting plant responses to atmospheric CO 2 increase, to global warming and to increased ultraviolet-B radiation as a .   The book also responds to evidence that recent warming trends in Europe have already affected health. The book opens with a brief explanation of the causes of climate change and stratospheric ozone depletion, followed by an overview of recent European and global initiatives aimed at monitoring trends and assessing their impact on health.

A recent analysis of trends in Europe reports a likely increase of 5–10% in yearly UV doses received over the past two decades (5). Stratospheric ozone depletion has further indirect health effects.

Vice versa, the depletion of stratospheric ozone has caused important changes in tropospheric climate and will continue to do so for decades to come. This ambitious book successfully brings together all aspects necessary for an in-depth understanding of the interaction of stratospheric ozone depletion and climate Size: 6MB.

Global warming - Global warming - Surface-level ozone and other compounds: The next most significant greenhouse gas is surface, or low-level, ozone (O3). Surface O3 is a result of air pollution; it must be distinguished from naturally occurring stratospheric O3, which has a very different role in the planetary radiation balance.

The primary natural source of surface O3 is the subsidence of. Get this from a library.

'Each of the key aspects of global climate change is covered, with up-to-date and well-referenced information throughout. Its impressive breadth and the provision of succinct overviews of source material in the further reading sections of each chapter mean that teachers, lecturers and researchers will all find this book a useful starting point Cited by: Ozone depletion consists of two related events observed since the late s: a steady lowering of about four percent in the total amount of ozone in Earth's atmosphere (the ozone layer), and a much larger springtime decrease in stratospheric ozone around Earth's polar regions.

The latter phenomenon is referred to as the ozone are also springtime polar tropospheric ozone depletion. In light of increasing interest in the functioning of extremophilic environments and growing concerns over global warming, this chapter attempts to address some of the factors that influence life in cold polar habitats.

The cryobiosphere is especially sensitive to changes in climate and itself plays an important role in gas fluxes and environmental shifts at the poles and, by extension, on the Author: Helen A.

Vrionis, Lyle G. Whyte, Karen Warner, Robert V. Miller. The last group is the people who are still confused about global climate change with the different problem of stratospheric ozone depletion. Most people in the United States agreed that climate change is dangerous.

Like Leiserowitz, Weber and Stern also mentioned the interpretive communities. Many people in Europe are concerned about the impacts of climate change and stratospheric ozone depletion on human health. A warm-ing trend and stratospheric ozone depletion have been observed in Europe over the last four decades.

The European Environment and Health Committee identified the need to assess these topics in This chapter focuses on the impact of climate change and stratospheric ozone depletion on health. These changes are the consequence of overload and breakdown of global homeostatic mechanisms. Climate change and ozone depletion demonstrate that the planet is a closed system.

Problems like these that are inherently global in nature require a response that is also worldwide. Ozone Depletion The Ozone Layer Figure 1. The ozone molecule is comprised of three oxygen atoms covalently bonded. “Ozone” by UCAR (Randy Russell) is licensed under CC BY-SA.
