THE first accurate measurements of the amount of ozone in the atmosphere were made by Fabry and Buisson at Marseilles in 1920, and their method has been modified and developed by Dr. G. M. B. Dobson and others,1 so that ozone observations are now made regularly at least once a day at about half a dozen places in different parts of the world. The results obtained up to the present from these series of observations are the subject of this article.
