Abstract : Values of maximum and 90 percentile ozone amounts observed during operation of the AFCRL ozonesonde network in North America are presented. The 90 percentile values are shown in cross section as a function of season, latitude, and altitude. The maximum values are represented by profiles of ozone versus altitude without regard to season or latitude. These results have application to the problems of ozone toxicity, harmful effects of ozone on vehicle components, and target detection by ultraviolet optical techniques. (Author)
