1.1 This test method describes the sampling and continuous analysis of the ozone content of the atmosphere at concentrations of 20 to 2000 μg of ozone/m3 (10 ppb (v) to 1 ppm (v)).

1.2 This test method is limited in application by its sensitivity to interferences as described below. This test method is not suitable for personal sampling because of instrument size and sensitivity to vibration and ambient temperature.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Some specific precautionary statements are presented in Section 8.

Significance and Use

4.1 Air quality standards for ozone have been promulgated by government authorities to protect the health and welfare of the public. Though ozone itself is a toxic material, it is often complex organic compounds that cause the symptoms of smog such as tearing and burning eyes. However, ozone is the predominant oxidant and is much more easily monitored than organic species. Since ozone concentrations are also correlated with other photochemical oxidant levels, it is the substance that is specified in air quality standards and regulations.
