Issue: Contributions and pressures between the land and the atmosphere - Ozone depletion
This is an issue under the Land theme of the Data Reporting System.
The ozone layer protects surface biodiversity, including terrestrial life and vegetation, from harmful solar radiation. Ozone depletion resulting in higher UV radiation levels reaching the surface has the potential to significantly impact on the vegetation and biodiversity of the land, and thus to further compound the impact of vegetation and biodiversity loss on the land and the other themes.
- A-13 Surface ultraviolet radiation in Australia
This indicator shows the intensity of ultraviolet radiation reaching the surface of the planet and impacting on surface dwelling terrestrial life forms.
