The efficiency of using of a new method of passive air sampling is being studied, as a universal low-cost means of monitoring ozone in the atmospheric surface layer. The passive method of selection of ozone and study of ozone distribution in the surface atmosphere were carried out at Mondy-station, which is a part of the Acid Deposition Monitoring Network in East Asia (EANET). The following methods were used: the passive sampling of surface ozone, the method of active selection of surface ozone (optical method). As a result, a great number of experimental data on surface ozone concentrations in the two methods was collected. The seasonal dynamics of surface ozone concentrations was explored at the monitoring station Mondy, the key factors were identified, which influence the variability of ozone concentrations throughout the year.
