Environmental effects of ozone depletion and its interactions with climate change: Progress report, 2008
MetadataShow full item record
After the enthusiastic celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer in 2007, the work for the protection of the ozone layer continues. The Environmental Effects Assessment Panel is one of the three expert panels within the Montreal Protocol. This EEAP deals with the increase of the UV irradiance on the Earth's surface and its effects on human health, animals, plants, biogeochemistry, air quality and materials. For the past few years, interactions of ozone depletion with climate change have also been considered. It has become clear that the environmental problems will be long-lasting. In spite of the fact that the worldwide production of ozone depleting chemicals has already been reduced by 95%, the environmental disturbances are expected to persist for about the next half a century, even if the protective work is actively continued, and completed. The latest full report was published in Photochem. Photobiol. Sci., 2007, 6, 201-332, and the last progress report in Photochem. Photobiol. Sci., 2008, 7, 15-27. The next full report on environmental effects is scheduled for the year 2010. The present progress report 2008 is one of the short interim reports, appearing annually.

Solar ultraviolet radiation and ozone depletion-driven climate change: Effects on terrestrial ecosystemsBornman, Janet; Barnes, P.; Robinson, S.; Ballare, C.; Flint, S.; Caldwell, M. (2015)In this assessment we summarise advances in our knowledge of how UV-B radiation (280-315 nm), together with other climate change factors, influence terrestrial organisms and ecosystems. We identify key uncertainties and ...
Effects of solar ultraviolet radiation on terrestrial ecosystems. Patterns, mechanisms, and interactions with climate changeBallare, C.; Caldwell, M.; Flint, S.; Robinson, S.; Bornman, Janet (2011)Ultraviolet radiation (UV) is a minor fraction of the solar spectrum reaching the ground surface. In thisassessment we summarize the results of previous work on the effects of the UV-B component(280–315 nm) on terrestrial ...
