Ozone the Recovery of Stratospheric Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

2009). Though innovative, this use of the model appears to be highly reliable and appropriate given the context of the study. At the same time, very little direct observation is utilized for correlation to this data, and retroactive predictions are not presented to demonstrate the model's efficacy, raising some doubt.


Though the system of ozone depletion and recovery was thought to be fairly well understood given the decades of research on the subject, emerging data regarding significant influential issues that had previously gone unaccounted for have suggested that this understanding is not as complete or as accurate as was previously thought. Climate change is suggested in many of the studies to have a significant impact on the rates of stratospheric ozone depletion and recovery, which in turn is seen as having an effect on climate change in other studies. This potentially cyclical interaction gives rise to complexities that are only in the preliminary stages of being identified, let alone understood. Continuing research over the next decade is sure to provide greater clarity to and a more comprehensive understanding of these issues, but the development of accurate models seen taking place in current research suggests that methodologies will still be settling into a new paradigm of validity for some time, based on new observational data.

What is currently known is that stratospheric ozone is in a state of recovery, at least in most areas where significant depletion has occurred. The massive reduction of ozone depleting substances in the atmosphere due to the…
