  Ozone depletion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Prior to the beginning of the depletion trend, the amount of ozone in the stratosphere was kept even by a stable balance in the amount of creation and destruction of ozone molecules by UV light.
The role of sunlight in ozone depletion is the reason why the Antarctic ozone depletion is greatest during spring; during winter, even though PSCs are at their most abundant, there is no light over the pole to drive the chemical reactions.
Any measures against ozone depletion which have a negative economic impact will remain a controversial issue due to the strong economic interests involved, with key questions regarding whether the scientific understanding is strong enough to warrant the proposed countermeasures.

 Ozone Depletion FAQ Part III: The Antarctic Ozone Hole
From: rparson@spot.colorado.edu (Robert Parson) Newsgroups: sci.environment Subject: Ozone Depletion FAQ Part III: The Antarctic Ozone Hole Date: 24 Dec 1997 20:50:47 GMT Message-ID: <67rsj7$2un@peabody.colorado.edu> Reply-To: rparson@spot.colorado.edu Summary: This is the third of four files dealing with stratospheric ozone depletion.
Depletion of the ozone layer therefore cools the stratosphere, and in this sense the hole is self-stabilizing.
Large ozone depletions, ~10-20%, were reported for high latitudes in the Northern Hemisphere; these still do not qualify as an "ozone hole" but they do seem to indicate that the same physics and chemistry are operating, albeit with much less efficiency.

 [Ganoksin] Jewelry Making - Some Notes on Depletion Gilding
Depletion gilding usually hinges on the conversion of the base metals near the surface of the gold alloy to chlorides (salts) or oxides using chemical attack and/or heat.
The purpose of depletion gilding can be stated quite simply: goldsmiths find it necessary to remove alloy additions from gold alloys in order to obtain pure gold with which to work or to change the color of alloy surfaces for aesthetic or economic reasons.
Depletion gilding offers the opportunity to enrich the gold content at the surface of the object or to preferentially attack one of the alloy constituents thus tilting the surface color to the tones given by the remaining alloy addition.

 Consequences (vol. 1, No. 2) - Impacts of a Projected Depletion of the Ozone Layer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Something the atmospheric models had not forecast was the dramatic, early springtime depletion of stratospheric ozone over the South Pole of the Earth, later termed the "ozone hole," that was discovered almost through accident in routine measurements taken in Antarctica.
Further measurements established that the phenomenon was the result of increased amounts of chlorine in the stratosphere in its most reactive form, intensified by the unique circulation of air near the Earth's poles and the presence of ice crystals in the peculiar stratospheric polar clouds.
The UNEP Panel on Environmental Effects of Ozone Depletion concludes in its 1994 report that present reality is far from the goal of defining impacts, and that funding of research on UVB effects is still very low and does not even allow full utilization of the existing research capacity.

 biology - Oxygen depletion
Oxygen depletion is a phenomenon that occurs in aquatic environments as dissolved oxygen (DO; molecular oxygen dissolved in the water) becomes reduced in concentration to a point detrimental to aquatic organisms living in the system.
Dissolved oxygen is typically expressed as a percentage of the oxygen that would dissolve in the water at the prevailing temperature and salinity (both of which affect the solubility of oxygen in water; see oxygen saturation and underwater).
Oxygen depletion could be the result of a number of factors including natural ones, but is of most concern as a consequence of pollution and as a highly detrimental outcome of a process known as eutrophication.

 International Workshop on Oil Depletion, Uppsala, Sweden, May 23-25, 2002
The Workshop has been organised to address the impact of resource constraints and natural depletion on the global supply of oil, one of Europe 's most critical energy sources.
It will ask why governments are not better informed, and why they fail to make appropriate preparations to ease the impact of the transition from growing to declining oil supply, which is likely to be a major historical discontinuity.
The Workshop will conclude with recommendations for remedying past failures in understanding the issue, and with proposals for improving the database, and for working towards a new system for managing oil depletion, a subject too serious to be left to market forces, or the sole interests of producer countries.
