Protecting the Ozone Layer


The Ozone Layer is crucial to life on Earth. Gain more knowledge on its composition, how it’s measured, and what steps can be taken to protect it.

Camdenton and Rolla join Joplin, Kickapoo, Nixa, and Ozark as members of this conference to form two 7-team divisions; other schools included are Glendale, Willard, Springfield Central, and Parkview.


Basketball is a team sport and can be enjoyed by boys and girls of any age. There are multiple ways to play the game, ranging from simple dribbling and passing to advanced moves and strategies; whatever way you decide to play, the most critical aspect is having fun learning the rules of the game! For newcomers looking to start basketball practice with friends or family members, this will help develop skills while building confidence before competing against teams around your area or globally.

The Ozone Layer can be found predominantly in the stratosphere, a portion of Earth’s atmosphere that lies six to 30 miles above its surface. It acts to shield Earth from UV radiation while helping regulate temperature, protect against harmful bacteria growth, and enable plant photosynthesis. Ozone can be measured using various methods, such as inhalation or blood plasma tests.

The Ozone Layer lies six to 30 miles above the Earth’s surface in the stratosphere, and scientists use tools to monitor levels in specific locations. It protects Earth from ultraviolet radiation as well as protecting us from its harmful rays.

The Ozone Layer provides Earth with protection from ultraviolet rays that could otherwise harm it, and when its protective ozone is damaged or depleted, it can have detrimental health implications. Ozone pollution has many causes – from industrial emissions and traffic exhaust to chemical cleaners or burning fossil fuels such as coal and petroleum, as well as nitrous oxides – but all have one thing in common: health effects! When this protective barrier is destroyed, it can have severe adverse health impacts that impact on the lungs, heart, and other parts of the body, including bronchitis and pneumonia, as well as interference with the absorption of vitamin D, which aids bone and dental health benefits. Ozone pollution comes from all these sources, while industrial emissions from factories are a significant source.

Football is a sport that requires that its ball be inflated to the appropriate pressure. This is essential, as an improperly inflated ball may not bounce properly and adversely impact players as they dribble, pass, or shoot the ball.

High school sports are an integral part of Ozarks life, and we cover them all on KY3. From championships to district playoffs, KY3 provides your source for high school sports news in our region – with scores, recaps, photos, and videos right here on KY3.

Ozone (O3) is an atmospheric gas made up of three oxygen atoms and found primarily in the lower atmosphere (troposphere) near the Earth’s surface, created through various chemical reactions. Ozone acts as an irritating respiratory irritant that can harm skin, eyes, lungs, and throat tissue; its levels can also damage their surroundings, such as walls. An Ozone Depleting Potential test measures how an individual compound reduces ozone levels in its environment.

Baseball is a trendy sport across North America and internationally, often considered America’s national pastime, boasting 30 Major League teams as well as hundreds of minor league squads in America alone. Additionally, baseball is also beloved across Central and South America, the Caribbean, and East Asia.

Baseball is a field sport in which a ball is thrown and caught by players on an open field to score runs. The rules of baseball can be complex, and its balls are made of rubberized substance designed to bounce. Each team consists of nine players, each one wearing helmets and gloves to participate. A bat used to hit the ball is called a “bat,” and usually made of wood or aluminum, it is called an “inside bat.”

Ozone forms in the lower atmosphere near Earth’s surface through chemical reactions between air molecules. Ozone has been linked with respiratory illnesses in humans as well as plant damage. Ozone’s colorless form bears the chemical symbol O3. Ozone formation results from oxygen atoms reacting with car exhaust or industrial pollutants.

The Ozone Layer provides us with protection from harmful ultraviolet rays, but human activities can deplete it and cause climate changes such as warming or cooling temperatures and reduced rainfall amounts.

An increased level of ozone in the atmosphere can pose health hazards to humans and animals alike, damage crops and plants, harm ecosystems, and impair water supplies. The ozone layer’s protection from UV radiation from the sun provides critical services on Earth. Located primarily within the stratosphere region in the upper atmosphere.

Decrease air pollution as part of your efforts to preserve the ozone layer by limiting unnecessary driving, choosing fuels with lower sulfur emissions, and purchasing energy-efficient appliances. You could even install an exhaust muffler or system to lower engine emissions.

Holiday basketball tournaments begin across the area this week. See the schedules of all of the games as well as up-to-date scores for high school sports at KY3 Ozarks Sports Zone.
