Ozone depletion has 'devastating' effects on southern hemisphere's weather

A new research has revealed that the ozone depletion, which acts like a climate driver, potentially has devastating effects in the southern hemisphere.



Washington: A new research has revealed that the ozone depletion, which acts like a climate driver, potentially has devastating effects in the southern hemisphere.

Costly floods, drought, wildfires, and serious environmental damage are some of the consequences of ozone depletion.

People generally tend to get confused that depletion of the ozone layer gives rise to sunburns and other health risks, but new research has showed that the ozone depletion changes atmospheric and oceanic circulation with potentially destructive effects on weather.

Lead author of the Global Change Biology article, Dr. Sharon Robinson said that the ozone hole changes Southern Hemisphere summer rainfall and wind patterns, which makes it very important to understand what that means for natural ecosystems, food security and human health.
