Ozone (O3), a reactive species of oxygen, is an important natural constituent of the atmosphere (1). Background levels of ozone in the lower atmosphere may range up to 0.1 ppm and are modified by geographic elevation, solar radiation and climatic conditions (2). Since some ozone effects are radiomlmetic its actions may be enhanced in the presence of ionizing radiation from background and/or man-made sources (3,4).
