Ozone Near Ground and Tropospheric Ozone


By means of a meridional chain of 19 stations between Tromso, Norway, and Hermanus, South Africa, a permanent registration of ozone near the ground has been obtained since 1970. From the first year of operation surprisingly systematic annual variations come out, which agree with theoretical calculations on stratospheric-tropospheric exchange.
