Letter to the Editor


A critical study of distribution of ozone with altitude of about 91 Km and above has been made and following important results are obtained:

(i) An empirical equation is fitted theoretically between the variation of ozone concentration and altitude at a definite time.

(ii) The rate of change of O3 concentration with respect to altitude is directly proportional to the O3 concentration at that altitude.

(iii) From analysis it is shown that ozone concentration decreases with the increase of altitude.
