Ozone mystery laid to rest

Using rare oxygen molecules trapped in air bubbles in old ice and snow, U.S. and French scientists have answered a long-standing question: How much have “bad” ozone levels increased since the start of the Industrial Revolution? “We’ve been able to track how much ozone there was in the ancient atmosphere,” said Rice University geochemist Laurence Yeung, […]

Ozone in the air has increased by 40%  since the industrial revolution

Experts from Rice University found that the rise in ground level, or tropospheric, ozone since 1850 was around 40%- much smaller than the increases indicated by 19th Century observations.
