Short summary
Ground-level ozone is a pollutant that affects both global climate change and regional air quality. Its complex formation chemistry makes the implementation of reduction strategies challenging and needs to be well understood to develop efficient strategies. This publication reports the development of an instrument capable of monitoring the ozone formation rate in the atmosphere. Its reliability was tested in the laboratory and in the field and important recommendations are given for improvement.
