Paper Abstract

A rate of the ozone generation within the ground air layer depending on the solar radiation intensity is considered in the paper. The radiation consumption for formation of a unit of the ozone concentration is shown to range from 15 to 120 W/m2 for 1 mkg/m3 and to vary in different seasons. It is greater in cold seasons when the ozone concentration is minimum and less in warm seasons with maximum ozone concentration. This reflects a peculiarity of the atmospheric ozone generation which starts from photolysis of the ozone available in the atmosphere. Empirical relations are obtained connecting the ozone concentration with total solar radiation.
