Research Focus Questions
  1. Can we determine the level of tropospheric (ground-level) ozone at our site?
  2. Can we determine the impact of ground-level ozone on organisms in their natural environments?

These research focus questions are intended to give direction to your study of ground-level ozone. We need to develop a deep, rich understanding of ground-level ozone and it's impact on the environment. This would include it's chemistry, where it comes from, it's impact on living things, and why it is an environmental problem.

The links on the left side of this page will guide you through the elements of research. Starting with the Creating the Context links will allow you to work with others who are also interested in this area. Working together to answer the focus questions above, combined with the background information provided in the project, and with the information that you develop on your own, will help the KanCRN research community to develop a rich understanding of ground-level ozone. Work your way through the links of the Creating the Context research project listed on the left side of the page. These are the beginning elements of research that will help to create the rich context of understanding from which research questions will emerge, driving your own research on ground-level ozone.

With these focus questions (above) guiding your work, proceed to the background information on ground-level ozone. If you have questions about the research process you can click on the Doing Research link on the lower left of any page in the project.
