How do wildfires affect the ozone layer?
Wildfires have been found to cause the formation of ozone. Ozone in the upper atmosphere is useful, as it protects against certain harmful types of UV radiation. However, ozone at ground level is a pollutant, and can be harmful to health.
Wildfires have been found to cause ozone levels to rise at ground level, which is undesirable.
Wildfires, however, do not impact the ozone layer.
