Transcript

  • 1. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole
  • 2. Objectives:
    know the location and function of the ozone layer.
    2. know that the ozone hole is caused by a category of gases called CFC’s sometimes referred to as freons.
    3. write balanced chemical equations for the production and destruction of ozone.
  • 3. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole
    90 % of ozone exists in the upper earth’s atmosphere called the stratosphere.
    A small percentage of ozone exists at ground level mostly in the form of smog.
  • 4. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole
    The ozone layer acts as a shield (or natural sunscreen) to protect the earth’s surface from harmful ultraviolet (uv) radiation.
    More O3 in the upper atmosphere results in less uv radiation that reaching the earth’s surface.
    Less O3 in the upper atmosphere results in more uv radiation reaching the earth’s surface.
  • 5. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole
    Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC’s) have been found to be a serious threat to the ozone layer.
    CFC – compound composed of carbon, fluorine, chlorine and hydrogen
    freon – trade name for CFC’s (du Pont)
  • 6. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)
    Example CFC Compounds
    CH4 – methane
    CH3Cl - chloromethane
    CH2Cl2 - dichloromethane
    CHCl3 - trichloromethane
    Molecular Models
  • 7. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)
    Example CFC Compounds
    CH4 – methane
    CH3F - fluoromethane
    CH2F2 - difluoromethane
    CHF3 - trifluoromethane
    Molecular Models
  • 8. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)
    CFC compounds are nontoxic, nonflammable, inexpensive, and readily convert between the gaseous and liquid states.
    CFC’s have been widely used for
    Aerosol-spray propellants
    Refrigerant
    Solvents
    Foam blowing agents
  • 9. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)
    Example aerosols:
  • 10. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)
    Aerosol Can Operation
    Aerosol cans contain a compressed gas over a liquid product to be dispensed (hair spray, deodorant, paint, oil, etc.)
    CFC gases were commonly used as propellants within aerosol cans.
    A variety of non CFC compounds are currently used (N2, CO2, etc.) depending on the application.
  • 11. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)
    Because of growing concern over ozone depletion, most industrialized nations have banned the production and use of CFC compounds.
  • 12. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)Graph of Worldwide CFC Production
  • 13. Worldwide CFC Production vs. YearOzone Hole Area Size vs. Year
  • 14. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)
    Ozone is produced by uv radiation from the sun.
    O2 + energy -> 2O
    O + O2 -> O3
    Ozone is destroyed by uv radiation from the sun.
    O3 + energy -> O2 + O
  • 15. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)
    Molecules of CFC compounds break down when they encounter ultraviolet (uv) radiation from the sun in the earth’s upper atmosphere.
    CH3Cl + energy -> CH3 + Cl
    Chlorine atoms react with ozone to yield chlorine monoxide and oxygen.
    Cl + O3 -> ClO + O2
    One CFC molecule can result in the destruction of 100,000 O3 molecules.
  • 16. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole
    Example Ozone Hole Images
  • 17. Where is the ozone hole within the ozone layer?
  • 18. Oct. 19803.27 million sq. mi.
  • 19. Oct. 198518.79 million sq. mi.
  • 20. Sept. 1990 21.05 million sq. mi.
  • 21. Sept. 199626.96 million sq. mi.
  • 22. Sept. 200030.31 million sq. mi
  • 23. Sept. 200526.77 million sq. mi.
  • 24. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)
  • 25. What would happen if the ozone hold would continued to grow?
    Ex. 1 – Effects on Humans
    Ex. 2 – Effects on Ecosystems
  • 26. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)
    A decrease in ozone leads to an increase in exposure to harmful ultraviolet (uv) radiation from the sun.
  • 27. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)
    Example 1
    Increased exposure to harmful uv radiation from the sun to result in (but not limited to):
    increased rates of sunburn
    Increased rate of skin cancers
    cataracts
    premature aging of skin (wrinkled, leathery appearance
    Example Skin Cancer Images
  • 28. II. The Ozone Layer and the Ozone Hole(don’t copy)
    Example 2
    An increase in harmful uv-radiation could kill microscopic algae called phytoplankton within the earth’s oceans.
    Example effect:
    phytoplankton←krill←fish←humans
