Unlike the oxygen we breathe, which is composed of two atoms of oxygen, ozone is composed of three atoms of oxygen.

The amount of ultraviolet light reaching Earth s surface is directly related to the angle of incoming solar radiation. The greater the Sun s angle of insolation, the greater the amount of ultraviolet light that reaches Earth s surface. If the ozone layer were completely destroyed, the ultraviolet light reaching Earth s surface would most likely increase human health problems, such as skin cancer and eye damage. 32. Assuming clear atmospheric conditions, on what day of the year do people in New York State most likely receive the most ultraviolet radiation from the Sun? 33. Explain how the concentrated ozone layer above Earth s surface is beneficial to humans. 34.
