CHEM/ENVS 380 Feb 9, 2010 Lecture 5 Stratospheric Ozone-3: Mechanisms of Ozone Production and Destruction 1. How is ozone produced and destroyed naturally? 2. What are the catalytic and non-catalytic pathways of ozone destruction? 3. What are X-catalysts?  What are their major properties? 4. Whereabouts in the atmosphere does the ozone layer exist, and why? 5. How do we affect stratospheric ozone levels?
