In which region is the depletion of ozone particularly marked?
(a) Equatorial region
(b) Temperate region
(c) Tropical region
(d) Antarctic region
I had been asked this question during an online interview.
I’d like to ask this question from Environmental Issues in portion Environmental Issues of Biology – Class 12
Correct answer is (d) Antarctic region
Easy explanation: The stratosphere found in the upper layer of the atmosphere has good ozone. This layer acts as a shield and absorbs the harmful, injurious ultraviolet (UV) radiations from the sun. In the Antarctic region, the depletion of ozone particularly marked.
