Ozone Layer Recovery
Away from the theory that depleted parts of the Ozone Layer will be naturally repaired in the middle of the 21st century, a developing research work on Ozone Hole Recovery presents an artificial solution before the datemark.
The ozone layer is a space of gas found in a layer of the Earth atmosphere, the stratosphere, 19-48km above sea level. Photochemical reactions involving ozone gas at the ozone layer helps to protect planet Earth from dangerous Ultraviolet radiations.
Some gas molecules released in substances used by humans once at the ozone layer react with ozone molecules forming compounds that cannot protect against harmful Ultraviolet radiations, making the amounts of useful ozone molecules reduced. This lead to what was observed many years back as depletion in part of the ozone layer fondly called the ozone hole.
Since this threatened man and the environment, nations agreed to reduce the use of substances having gas molecules that are threat to the ozone layer; this made ozone layer protection important till date.
For factors and conditions of the ozone layer, scientists have posited natural recovery of lost ozone molecules and fade out of harmful gases in use and at that level to about 50years time. This has turned the focus to protection from here than recovery from there.
Ozone depletion have effects as skin cancer and cataract in humans and liked with certain Climate Change effects making ozone hole repair, recovery or solution from the stratosphere important sooner than later.
Oxygen in one of the reactions in the ozone layer is converted to ozone, more volume of oxygen in liquid state can be stored than as gas, and there are airship and aircraft flying at stratospheric altitude with approximate load capacity for certain volume of stored oxygen.
So if an aircraft carries liquid oxygen from planet Earth and discharge as gas to depletd parts of the ozone layer, it join in photochemical reactions occuring there and make up for lost ozone molecules to mitigate depletion and protect the environment.
This procedure can be used to protect man and the environment from dangerous Ultraviolet radiation effects and keep under the control of man a global threat.
