The world’s most mysterious mass extinction may have had an ozone depletion component

Throughout history, Earth has experienced at least five major mass extinctions that have wiped out most of the life around the world. Most of these events coincided fairly clearly with disasters such as asteroid strikes, geological activities and volcanic eruptions. However, an event is more of a mystery – the extinction of the late Devonian 360 million years ago. We …

Mass extinction 360 m years ago due to ozone layer erosion

A mass extinction 360 million years ago, in which many plants and freshwater animals on earth were killed, was caused by the depletion of the ozone layer. Scientists at the University of Southampton found evidence that high UV radiation was destroying the old forest ecosystem. This newly discovered extinguishing mechanism was caused by changes in Earth’s temperatures and climate cycle …

Photo credit: John Marshall Researchers at the University of Southampton have shown that an extinction 360 million years ago in which a large part of the world’s plant and freshwater organisms was killed was caused by a brief depletion of the ozone layer, which protects the earth from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation . …
