- ... From April 2014 to January 2015, ozone (O3) dynamics were investigated as part of GoAmazon 2014/5 project in the central Amazon rainforest of Brazil. Just above the forest canopy, maximum hourly O3 mixing ratios averaged 20 ppbv (parts per billion on a volume basis) during the June–September dry months and 15 ppbv during the wet months. Ozone levels occasionally exceeded 75 ppbv in response to inf ...
