Two primary areas link the issue of stratospheric ozone depletion to global climate change: atmospheric processes and ecological processes. Atmospheric processes establish a linkage through the dual roles of certain trace gases in promoting global warming and in depleting the ozone layer. The primary radiatively active trace gases are carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, chlorofluorocarbons, methane, and tropospheric ozone. In the troposphere, the atmosphere up to 10 miles above the earth's surface, these compounds function as greenhouse gases. At increased levels they can contribute to global climate change. Many of these gases also influence the concentration of ozone in the stratosphere, the atmospheric layer located between 10-30 miles above the earth's surface. The diffuse layer of ozone in the stratosphere protects life on earth from harmful solar radiation. A reduction of the layer could have very important impacts on the earth's systems. The second mode of interaction revolves around various ecological processes. Physical, chemical, and biological activities of plants and animals are affected directly by global climate change and by increased ultraviolet radiation resulting from depletion of stratospheric ozone.
