Abstract : On the basis of a photochemical model number densities of O(singlet D), O(triplet P), O3, OH, HO2, H2, H2O, H2O2 and H are computed for heights from 15 to 40 km. The model is modified by considering vertical eddy transport. It is shown that molecular hydrogen is transported from the troposphere to about 35 km without being broken down. Also H2O2 and O3 are affected by eddy motion in the 15-25 km region. Good agreement is obtained between theoretical and observed number densities of ozone. (Author)
