Ozone is a greenhouse gas that has the 3rd largest positive radiative forcing, or warming effect, after CO 2 and CH 4 (4). It is also considered the most important phytotoxic (directly toxic to plants) air pollutant affecting growth and health of forests and agricultural crops (5; 6). One of the greatest and most dangerous effects of pollution on the ozone layer is that it creates holes in the atmosphere, which allow powerful ultraviolet rays from the sun to reach the Earth’s surface.

Many varieties of atmospheric pollutants — toxic chemicals, synthetic substances, such as DDT, and manmade chemicals — enter the atmosphere. Sierra Nevada study • There is high spatial and lower temporal variability of ozone distribution • SW, W and E portions of the Sierra Nevada experience long-lasting elevated ozone exposures • The determined levels of ozone have a strong phytotoxic potential and may affect health of residents and visitors in Sierra Nevada forests.

Emissions of both sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides deposit in water, on vegetation and on soils as “acid rain”, thereby increasing their acidity with adverse effects on flora and.

The Sierra Nevada subalpine zone refers to a biotic zone below treeline in the Sierra Nevada mountain range of California, United subalpine zone is positioned between the upper montane zone (such as red fir forest) at its lower limit, and tree line at its upper limit. The Sierra Nevada subalpine zone occurs between 2,–3, metres (8,–12, ft), and is characterized by.

Air pollution - Air pollution - Ozone: A key component of photochemical smog, ozone is formed by a complex reaction between nitrogen dioxide and hydrocarbons in the presence of sunlight. It is considered to be a criteria pollutant in the troposphere—the lowermost layer of the atmosphere—but not in the upper atmosphere, where it occurs naturally and serves to block harmful ultraviolet rays.
