Overlapping 1-minute Mesoscale Domain Sectors provided GOES-16 (GOES-East) “Red” Visible and “Clean” Infrared Window images at 30-second intervals (above) as Hurricane Dorian reached Category 5 intensity just east of Great Abaco Island in the Bahamas during the morning hours on 01 September 2019.
Aqua-Planet Experiment Project (APE), WGNE. An idealised distribution of ozone has been constructed for APE, based on the AMIP II climatology by Liang and Wang.The APE distribution consists of the annual mean AMIP II distribution, zonally averaged and symmetrized about the equator.

Thompson 9 Abstract. In recognition of World Ozone Layer Day gather the kids together and try a few of these Earth-friendly activities! Science Screen. Try a simple science experiment, showing your child how the ozone layer protects the Earth’s surface from harmful UV rays. Turn on a desk lamp – representing the sun. They are moving in random directions too fast to settle down. As for the ozone layer being where it is, yes, it is being produced up there. The layer is a dynamic process - ozone being produced from oxygen by UV activation and reacting back. You get the layer at a certain height where you have the right balance of O2 concentration and UV intensity. Oct 20, 2012 · 1 As an aside, ozone in the troposphere (the atmospheric layer closest to the Earth’s surface and extending up to ~10 km) is a pollutant. In particular, ozone close to the ground is powerful irritant to the respiratory system and has a strong link to premature deaths, as documented by the World Health Organization.
The "Ozone Layer" interactive exhibit provides information on the importance of stratospheric ozone in the protection of short wave ultraviolet radiation from the sun. A low concentration of ozone produced from pure oxygen in an ozone generator is absorbing short wave UV-C radiation. The absorption is made visible by use of a fluorescent technique.
The highly dispersed microscopic particles in stratospheric aerosol layer play an important role in the stratospheric ozone depletion, and affect the Earth’s climate by absorbing and scattering ... There are many other factors affecting the ozone layer, in particular climate change is expected to modify the speed of re-creation of the ozone layer. Therefore, long-term observations are needed to monitor the further evolution of the stratospheric ozone layer.
The largest recorded Antarctic ozone hole was recorded in 2006, with holes of slightly smaller size since then. Newman, Stolarski, and other colleagues have used their model to simulate how the real world ozone layer will recover as well. Because of climate change from greenhouse gases, they say, the ozone layer will probably not look exactly ... Nov 25, 2008 · This activity mirrors how a greenhouse works, but it's not exactly the same as the greenhouse effect that is taking place in the Earth's atmosphere. A complex interaction between light, heat, and chemicals make up the greenhouse effect and the chemicals known as "greenhouse gases" in the environment. Table of Contents Teacher's Guide Information and suggestions on how to use these pages. History of the Atmosphere An outline of the events that may have led to the development of our present atmosphere - links included for additional information.
An evaluation of the interaction of morning residual layer and afternoon mixed layer ozone in Houston using ozonesonde data Gary A. Morrisa,*, Bonne Fordb, Bernhard Rappenglu¨ckc, Anne M. Thompsond, The ozone layer is not recovering, it is collapsing. Though there are countless anthropogenic factors negatively impacting Earth’s vital ozone layer, climate engineering / geoengineeering / solar radiation management is by far the single greatest factor fueling ozone layer collapse. The Airborne Southern Hemisphere Ozone Experiment (ASHOE) is designed to examine the causes of ozone loss in the Southern Hemisphere lower stratosphere and to investigate how the loss is related to polar, mid-latitude, and tropical processes. ASHOE will be conducted in concert with the campaign, Measurements for Assessing the Effects of ... observations, for example, in the Indian Ocean Experiment (INDOEX).
