• Introduction to
• What is Atmosphere ?
• Atmosphere Composition
• Atmosphere Stratification
• Stratosphere and its description

• First of all , before understanding about ozone layer,
how it is depleted and what are its impacts it is
needed to understand where actually this ozone layer
is present?
• Earth is having 4 main sphere which act as boon for
our living world.
• This 4 main sphere includes – Atmosphere (air),
Hydrosphere(water), Lithosphere (earth’s rocky outer
skin), Pedosphere (where soil form).
• Here while taking about ozone layer ,it is needed to
understand ,where actually it is present ? Ozone layer
is present in Stratosphere (present at height of 10-50
km from earth’s surface. )which is one region of
Atmosphere (An Envelope of Gases).
What is Atmosphere ?

• Atmosphere can be defined as
