Ozone

Ozone is a gas that occurs both in the Earth's upper atmosphere and at ground level.

Ozone can be "good" or "bad" for people's health and for the environment, depending on its location in the atmosphere.


School tip: Indoors, copy machines can emit ozone if they are not installed with adequate ventilation.
