    CDOM can mitigate the damaging effect of solar UV radiation in the aquatic system, while its loss due to photo-oxidation can decrease absorptivity in the UV and visible spectral regions. In the visible range of the electromagnetic spectrum, CDOM absorption can reduce the amount of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) available to theCited by: Start studying ABC's of Environmental Science.

Although maximum ozone concentration occurs at 25km, the lower air density at 50km allows solar energy to heat up temperature there at a much greater degree. Also, much solar energy is absorbed in the upper stratosphere . Changes in the ozone layer over the past two decades have resulted in increases in solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation that reaches the surface of aquatic environments. Recent studies have demonstrated that these UV increases cause changes in photochemical reactions that affect the environmental cycling of carbon, oxygen, sulfur, and various trace metals in the aquatic environment.

At the same time, decreased UV radiation in such surface waters reduces the capacity of solar UV radiation to inactivate viruses and other pathogens and parasites, and increases the difficulty and. Solar UV radiation penetrates to ecological significant depths in aquatic systems and can affect both marine and freshwater systems from major biomass producers (phytoplankton) to consumers (e.g., zooplankton, fish,etc.) higher in the food web.

The effects of changes in solar UV-B on long-term carbon storage remain unclear. However, UV-B influences short-term carbon turn- over from plant litter (dead plant material) in terrestrial systems, and dissolved organic matter (DOM) and particulate organic matter (POM) in aquatic systems.

We estimate the change at this time in the output of solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation at wavelengths from to nm, relative to contemporary observations. Since this portion of the solar UV spectrum determines ozone composition in the stratosphere, our results bear on the historical variability of ozone and its potential climatic by: Solar UV radiation, climate and other drivers of global change are undergoing significant changes and models forecast that these changes will continue for the remainder of this century.

Damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation on the aquatic biota, related to anthropogenic modifications in the ozone layer, have been extensively described. The effects of predicted changes in climate and solar UV radiation on carbon cycling in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems are expected to vary significantly between regions.

The balance of positive and negative effects on terrestrial carbon cycling remains uncertain, but the interactions between UV radiation and climate change are likely to contribute to decreasing sink strength in many oceanic Cited by:   Abstract.

Increases in ultraviolet radiation (UVR) and CO 2 affect phytoplankton growth and mortality in a variety of different ways. However, in situ responses of natural phytoplankton communities to climate change, as well as its effects on phytoplankton annual cycles, are still largely unknown.

Although temperature and UVR have been increasing in temperate latitudes during winter, Cited by: UV exposure did not affect the decomposition of the lignin fraction. Increased decomposition with UV radiation was accompanied by a decrease in N immobilization over the summer months.

These results suggest that the effects of UV radiation on decomposition rates may be primarily abiotic, caused by direct photochemical degradation of the litter.
