    Description

    Ambient concentrations of ozone (O3) were measured at five highland forest locations in the Ukrainian Carpathians and in two lowland locations in the Kiev region during August to September 1995 by using O3 passive samplers. The ozone passive samplers were calibrated against a Thermo Environmental Model 49 ozone monitor located at the Central Botanical Garden in Kiev. The 2-week long average concentrations in August to September at the Carpathian Mountains ranged from 27.4 to 51.8 ppb, and at the lowland forest location (Lutezh, near Kiev) ranged from 29.3 to 32.2 ppb. The 2-week long average concentrations in Kiev (Botanical Garden) ranged from 22.0 to 31.5 ppb. The highest diurnal average concentration in August 1995 in the Botanical Garden was 42.1 ppb while the highest 1-hr average concentration reached 84.4 ppb. Ozone-sensitive Bel-W3 tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) plants at the Botanical Garden in Kiev were injured from exposure to ambient concentration of ozone. Ozone injury symptoms were found on native plants (e.g., Sambucus racemosa and Humulus lupulus) elsewhere in Kiev and at some of the study sites in the Carpathians.
