In February this year, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), an agency under the control of the Federal Ministry of Health, announced the placing of a ban on the use of methyl bromide for pest control with reason being that the use of the agrochemical contributes to depletion of Ozone
This layer is where the active chemical depletion of ozone
occurs on polar stratospheric clouds.
However, the purpose of celebration is to spread awareness of the depletion of ozone
layer and seek out solutions to preserve it.
Chlorofluorocarbons are chemicals that are used in perfumes and air freshener cans because their exceedingly volatile characteristic, however, these chlorofluorocarbons are non-decomposable hence they result in the depletion of ozone
layer: our only protection against the Ultraviolent rays of the sun whose entrance results in massive rise of the temperature of the Earth.
Which is why the continued depletion of ozone
in lower latitudes caught scientists somewhat by surprise.
The day is mainly intended to spread awareness of depletion of Ozone
Layer and search for solutions to preserve it.
Depletion of Ozone
Layer, he said, was one of the most serious environmental concerns threatening the very existence of life on earth.
The depletion of ozone
had the potential to adversely impact life on Earth.
NASA and NOAA have a mandate under the Clean Air Act to monitor ozone-depleting gases and stratospheric depletion of ozone
. NOAA complies with this mandate by monitoring ozone via ground and satellite measurements.
Curve C shows extended chemical depletion of ozone
from approximately 15 to 25 km and diminishing loss to 28 km relative to the outside vortex distribution (Curve A).
Global impacts of air pollution result from sources that may potentially change the upper atmosphere for example depletion of ozone
layer and global warming.
