      Criteria Air Pollutants. The Clean Air Act requires the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish national air quality standards for six common air pollutants that are found throughout the United States. EPA refers to these pollutants as “criteria” pollutants because they are regulated by using human health-based and/or environmentally-based criteria to set permissible levels. ozone is harmful to vegetation, materials and human health. In the troposphere, ozone is also an efficient greenhouse gas. This report summarizes the results of a multidisciplinary analysis aiming to assess the effects of ozone on health. The analysis indicates that ozone File Size: 1MB.

Ozone (/ ˈ oʊ z oʊ n /), or trioxygen, is an inorganic molecule with the chemical formula O is a pale blue gas with a distinctively pungent smell. It is an allotrope of oxygen that is much less stable than the diatomic allotrope O 2, breaking down in the lower atmosphere to O 2 ().Ozone is formed from dioxygen by the action of ultraviolet (UV) light and electrical discharges within the Chemical formula: O₃.

Effects of ozone layer depletion. Let us see a few possible effects of the ozone layer depletion on the earth’s environment and also on the plants and animals. The depletion of ozone layer allows entering of UV rays from sun into the earth’s atmosphere which is associated with a number of health related and environmental issues.
