Ozone in the Atmosphere Basic Principles, Natural and Human Impacts

Ozone in the Atmosphere Basic Principles, Natural and Human Impacts

Author: Peter Fabian, Martin Dameris Format: Paperback Release Date: 23/08/2016

Peter Fabian and Martin Dameris provide a concise yet comprehensive overview of established scientific knowledge about ozone in the atmosphere. They present both ozone changes and trends in the stratosphere, as well as the effects of overabundance in the troposphere including the phenomenon of photosmog. Aspects such as photochemistry, atmospheric dynamics and global ozone distribution as well as various techniques for ozone measurement are treated. The authors outline the various causes for ozone depletion, the effects of ozone pollution and the relation to climate change. The book provides a handy reference guide for researchers active in atmospheric ozone research and a useful introduction for advanced students specializing in this field. Non-specialists interested in this field will also profit from reading the book. Peter Fabian can look back on a life-long active career in ozone research, having first gained international recognition for his measurements of the global distribution of halogenated hydrocarbons. He also pioneered photosmog investigations in the metropolitan areas of Munich, Berlin, Athens and Santiago de Chile, and his KROFEX facility provided controlled ozone fumigation of adult tree canopies for biologists to investigate the effects of ozone increases on forests. Besides having published a broad range of scientific articles, he has also been the author or editor of numerous books. From 2002 to 2005 he served the European Geosciences Union (EGU) as their first and Founding President. Martin Dameris is a prominent atmospheric modeler whose interests include the impacts of all kinds of natural and man-made disturbances on the atmospheric system. His scientific work focuses on the connections between ozone and climate changes. For many years he has been an active contributor to the WMO scientific ozone depletion assessments, which have been used to monitor the depletion and recovery of the ozone layer in accordance with the Montreal Protocol.

Unsere Atmosphare, das Luftmeer, auf dessen Grunde wir leben, ist ein Gasgemisch, das neben den Hauptbestandteilen Stiekstoff und Sauerstoff eine Vielzahl von Spurengasen enthalt. Dieses Gasgemisch an sich ware reaktionstrage und somit von geringem chemischen Interesse, wiirde es nicht im Wechsel von Tag und Nacht und im Rhythmus der Jahreszeiten von der Sonne bestrahlt. Die Sonnenstrahlung, insbesondere ihr energie reieher Ultraviolettanteil, vermag die meisten Konstituenten des atmo spharischen Gasgemisches in ihre Bestandteile zu spalten. Durch diesen photochemischen Prozel3, den man als Photolyse oder Photodissozia tion bezeiehnet, entstehen aul3erst reaktive Substanzen, die fUr uns Erdbewohner wichtige chemische Reaktionsketten auslOsen. Lediglich die atmospharischen Edelgase, Argon, Neon, Helium und Krypton (in der Reihenfolge ihrer Haufigkeit) nehmen an dies en Prozessen nieht tei!. Der wohl wichtigste photochemische Prozel3 in unserer Atmosphare ist die Bi!dung von Ozon (s. Abschnitt 2). Ozon ist die dreiatomige Form des Luftsauerstoffs, 0 Der normale Sauerstoff besteht aus O, zwei mit 3 2 einander verbundenen Sauerstoff-Atomen. Unter Einwirkung der Ultra violettstrahlung der Sonne wird ein Teil des Luftsauerstoffs O gespalten, 2 und die gebildeten Sauerstoffatome konnen sieh mit zweiatomigen Sauer stoffmolekulen zum dreiatomigen Ozon verbinden. Die hieraus resultie rende atmospharische Ozonschieht ist fUr uns in zweifacher Hinsicht von grol3er Bedeutung. Zum einen schirmt sie die gefahrliche Ultraviolett strahlung der Sonne ab, welche ohne diesen Filter alles Leben auf dem Festland ausloschen wiirde. Zum anderen bewirkt die Energie dieser in der Hohe absorbierten Strahlung dort eine beachtliche Erwarmung, sie hat damit Einflul3 auf die allgemeine Luftzirkulation.
