I'd like to know about air pollution and its effects as well as the chance of damaging the ozone layer.

Barry's Response - Girdhar:

Hi, there are certainly components to the pollution we spew into the atmosphere that become ozone hazards by affecting the thickness and concentration of the ozone layer in the stratosphere, several kilometres above the earth's surface.

The ones we hear about mainly have molecules consisting of a carbon atom and some halide, such as fluorocarbons and chlorofluorocarbons.

have a look at this: http://www.epa.gov/ozone/ from the US government.

Wikipedia is always a good source of background information on scientific topics. try this page. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ozone_depletion

not technical enough
by: Stephanie

This article was very vague and didn't really have anything new to say. Very broad statements rather than direct examples. Using Wiki isn't acceptable for students. I didn't care for this site and am not interested in exploring further.

I think that the ozone hazards was a good topic but i think you needed more information.

I found the article to be extremely vague and could have had a lot more detail. The words that were in the article were very understandable even for a lower level student. The weblinks were an excellent source; however, schools will not allow students to submit research from Wikipedia. A better illustration of the atmosphere levels might have helped.
