pparently Damage Ozone Layer at South Pole 27 km square.It turned out that damage the ozone layer at the South Pole reached an area of 27 million square kilometers. That breadth is greater than the breadth of North America about 25 million square kilometers."This happens because a lot of human behavior that unwittingly cause damage to the ozone," said Head of Atmospheric Science and Technology Institute of Aeronautics and Space Agency (LAPAN), Novita Ambarsari, told reporters on the sidelines of the Ozone Layer Protection Socialization in the Armed Pusdik , Cimahi City, Monday (4 / 7).
South Polar ozone hole is not in the sense that the actual hole in the ozone layer. However, said Novita, the ozone hole is a thinning of the ozone layer with a lower concentration of 220 DU. This value is based on observations of ozone at the South Pole that has never been higher than 220 DU since 1979.
based on data of total ozone measurements Nimbus satellite in June
2009, there are trends of decrease in total ozone concentrations in
Indonesia amounting to 0.29 DU / year. Chemicals
damaging the ozone layer is primarily derived from the type of
chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) used in various processes of products such as
refrigerators, air coolers, and soft foam manufacturing processes as
ozone depleting substances are widely used in industrial fire
extinguishers and Methyl Bromide used for pesticide ingredients," said
Novita. "The use of these materials increased rapidly since the 1970s that led to abortion in the atmosphere also increases."
He said how to resolve this problem by altering human behavior. Communities should be made aware that human beings should live longer with a comfortable and safe atmosphere. Education can be delivered in the form of stories and real evidence that people moved to live with a better way.
lot of people's habits is never an accordance with the pattern back to
nature such as turn on the TV without anyone watching it. In fact, the energy derived from solar litrik. Meanwhile, diesel fuel can not be updated and burns itself causes damage to the ozone layer, "he said.
