In this study we have compared Model-49 (Thermo Environmental Instruments Inc., USA) and 3-02P ozonometers that employ different principles of operation. It is shown that Model-49 overestimates by two to three times the ozone concentration in the atmosphere because of the contribution from fine aerosol fraction. Therefore, in using this ozonometer, an additional filter or correction of ozonometer readouts for the effect of fine aerosol fraction is needed.
