Temporal variations in the concentrations of tropospheric ozone in St. Petersburg (Russia), a lowurbanized area in the south of Kirov region (the town of Vyatskiye Polyany), and in the Karadag Nature Reserve in Crimea are presented. The dynamics of ground level ozone concentrations in these regions is analyzed and basic features of the seasonal and diurnal variations are found. The latitudinal dependence of the ground level ozone concentrations is shown.
