    Ultraviolet Rays

    The Ozone layer Absorbs Ultraviolet rays. Ozone layer absorbs 97-99% of the sun’s high frequency ultraviolet light, which is potentially damaging to life on earth. Ozone is a molecule made up of three atoms of oxygen O3.  Ozone is unstable and will readily combine with other atoms. The amount of ultraviolet radiation that hits the surface of the Earth is directly proportional to the amount of ozone in the stratosphere.
