Between 1980 and 2000, the protective ozone in the stratosphere, about 10 to 30 miles high, decreased 3 percent.
A form of oxygen, ozone protects life on Earth from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation.
So, as we learn more about stratospheric ozone and climate change, what were once two separate problems have become more and more entwined.
Adding that third oxygen atom makes ozone a very pushy and highly obnoxious little molecule.
Carbon monoxide is not only a hazardous air pollutant itself, it is also a chemical compound that produces ozone , a greenhouse gas that is a human health hazard.
No one disputes that stratospheric ozone recovery is one of the environmental movement's great success stories.
Your lungs may be exposed to pollutants such as ozone , carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and sulfuric acid.
The Institute Nacional de Meteorologia provided the radiometric, columnar ozone and meteorological information for the three stations used in this study.
The ozone hole still contains ozone , just at extremely low levels compared with the surrounding stratosphere.
The District's urban forest improves air quality by removing nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone , and particulate matter.
