Environmental effects of ozone depletion and its interactions with climate change: 2014 assessment

Open Access Perspective

Solar ultraviolet radiation and ozone depletion-driven climate change: effects on terrestrial ecosystems

We summarise advances in our knowledge of how UV-B radiation (280–315 nm) together with other climate change factors interact in their influence on terrestrial organisms and ecosystems.

Consequences of stratospheric ozone depletion and climate change on the use of materials

Materials used in the exterior of buildings and in construction are routinely exposed to solar UV radiation. Especially in the case of wood and plastic building materials, the service life is determined by their weather-induced deterioration.

Effects of UV radiation on aquatic ecosystems and interactions with other environmental factors

Combined effects of anthropogenic changes in the environmental condition in marine ecosystems, including UV, CO2 and temperature.

The consequences for human health of stratospheric ozone depletion in association with other environmental factors

Ozone depletion, climate and human health.

Ozone depletion and climate change: impacts on UV radiation

Percentage changes in the UV Index (UVI) for 2090 relative to 2015 due to changes in ozone (left) and aerosols (right) only. Large decreases are projected over Antarctica due to stratospheric ozone recovery. Increases are projected for parts of Asia due to decreases in aerosols, partly reversing the possible large reductions in UVI after the 1950s.

Effects of stratospheric ozone depletion, solar UV radiation, and climate change on biogeochemical cycling: interactions and feedbacks

Solar UV radiation and climate change interact to influence and determine the environmental conditions for humans on planet Earth.

Changes in air quality and tropospheric composition due to depletion of stratospheric ozone and interactions with changing climate: implications for human and environmental health

UV radiation is an essential driver for the formation of photochemical smog, which includes ground-level ozone and particulate matter (PM).

About this collection

The assessments presented in the seven papers published in this journal deal with the effects of ozone depletion on human health and the environment and the consequences of interactions between ozone depletion and global climate change.
