Abstract : The primary objective of this abortive project was the investigation of the relationship of total atmospheric ozone to variable solar activity and the changing pattern of the general circulation. During the year before the termination of the project three things were accomplished: (1) Completion of the draft of the delayed Final Report. (2) The final analysis of sunspot-ozone relationships in terms of all monthly mean station values of total ozone previous to 1960. A paper presenting the results of this preliminary analysis constitutes the greater part of this report and is abstracted in full. (3) The preparation of a large body of daily total ozone station data for the continued investigation on a day-to-day basis of the relationship of total ozone to variable solar activity and the changing pattern of the general circulation.
