Ozone measurements were performed at m altitude (lat = ° N, long = ° W), in the Guadarrama mountain range, from mid-June, (14th) to late July, (24th), The monitoring station was located on the border of the region of Madrid, around 55 km northwest of Cited by: The Johnson data lead to the closest agreement, but the radiance is still about 50% higher than our measurements—implying a total ozone concentration above 35 km about twice that of Johnson's. Using the relation between radiance and ozone concentration, the data are analyzed to give the latitude distribution of the high‐altitude (>35 km) by: connect the plots, creating a line graph. Negative values for latitude mean that it is in the southern hemisphere. The more negative it is, the further it is from the equator and the closer it is to the South Pole. 0 50 39 82 s Latitude Ozone Levels Vs. Latitude Location Latitude Ozone (Dobson Units). The ozone layer is usually considered to be km in altitude,being somewhat lower near the poles. It is at different heights atdifferent latitudes and different times of year.

Climate change results from changes in the chemical content of Earth's atmosphere – changes that control the proportion of solar radiant energy absorbed by the atmosphere, the proportion absorbed by Earth, and the proportion of solar and terrestrial energy radiated or reflected back into space by the earth-atmosphere system.

Ozone Layer. New York: Columbia University, "ozone, located at altitude of mi ( km) above the earth's surface"

  That may seem like a lot, but it is only percent of the atmosphere. The peak concentration of ozone occurs at an altitude of roughly 32 kilometers (20 miles) above the surface of the Earth. At that altitude, ozone concentration can be as high as 15 parts per million ( percent). Ozone layer, region of the upper atmosphere, between roughly 15 and 35 km (9 and 22 miles) above Earth’s surface, containing relatively high concentrations of ozone molecules. Approximately 90 percent of the atmosphere’s ozone occurs from 10–18 km (6–11 miles) to about 50 km (about 30 miles.   Data to aid with planning efforts are based on statistical summaries of atmospheric ozone as a function of altitude, latitude, and month (NRC ). The results presented here indicate that planning-based risk management techniques may be effective in predicting ozone trends based on month and by: 4. Ozone is three oxygen atoms joined together. Near the ground, human activity such as burning coal or gasoline creates ozone. High amounts of ozone at ground level harm plant life and damages peoples’ lungs. High in Earth’s atmosphere (miles above the surface), ozone forms from natural processes.
