Drains of ozone in troposphere are analyzed. The considered issues are: ozone photolyzis as a possible drain from troposphere; interaction of ozone with gas components; interaction of ozone with aerosol; sedimentation of ozone on underlying surface and washing away by precipitations. It is shown, that the most powerful sink is interaction of ozone with gas components of air, especial fly with organic. The second factor contributing to the general destruction of tropospheric ozone, is its sink on the underlying surface. Reception of reliable estimations on the removal of ozone from troposphere is important at its interaction with the atmospheric aerosol.
