The ozone layer protects the earth from ultraviolet rays.
The ozone layer is a region in the earth’s stratosphere that contains high concentrations of ozone and protects the earth from the harmful ultraviolet radiations of the sun.
- The ozone layer is found in the lower portion of the earth’s atmosphere.
- It has the potential to absorb around 97-99% of the harmful ultraviolet radiations coming from the sun that can damage life on earth.
- If the ozone layer was absent, millions of people would develop skin diseases and may have weakened immune systems
