The ozone layer surrounds the Earth in the stratosphere region and absorbs the majority of the ultraviolet radiation emitted by the sun. In this manner, the ultraviolet that enters the earth is reduced. The constant release of chemicals from industries and other human activities, however, results in the gradual thinning of the ozone layer.
