This report was initiated by the European Commission (DG XII/D,
Environment Directorate) but is based on broad international scientific
knowledge. Our understanding of tropospheric and stratospheric processes
has improved substantially over the last years, even if large
uncertainties remain. For example, much progress has been made in our
understanding of the chemical mechanisms that determine the balance of
ozone in the lower stratosphere, including the role of heterogeneous
reactions. We also better understand the processes that control ozone in
the upper troposphere, although the budget of ozone precursors is not well
quantified and stratospheric-tropospheric exchange remains poorly
