Cholorine and Bromine released from man made compounds such as CFCs are new accepted us the main cause of this depletion.
Environmental impact.
Human & welfare is a major concern. welfare is reduction in plant productivity, including agrigultural crops, due to increase UV-B radiation and tropospheric ozone formation.
Economic Impacts
Results suggest that increase in tropospheric ozone due to 15% stratospheric depletion man cause economic loss of around 0.9 billion dollars together range about 1.3 to 2.5 billion dollars.
