Tropospheric Ozone and Food Productivity

The discovery of ozone (O3) in the troposphere was first made in the 1840’s. Consequently, an intensive study about its distribution was made in the latter part of the nineteenth century due to its supposed health-giving properties as a germicide (Schönbein, 1840). The first classical explanation of ozone in the troposphere was that it was made in the stratosphere by direct photolysis of oxygen at wavelengths less than 242 nanometer. Stratosphere is a layer above the earth’s surface, between approximately...
