Abstract:

The complexity of the problem of atmospheric ozone is exhibited in the fluctuations of the ozone concentration at all heights. In the layer of air immediately adjoining the ground, the ozone content always sinks to zero when the air stagnates, due to the effect of the ground, which is very destructive to ozone. In the troposphere, advection plays the main part in causing fluctuations. Widely varying vertical ozone distributions have been found recently by means of the spectrographic method in balloon ascents.
