The review is compiled based on the results of the operation of the Total Ozone (TO) Monitoring System in the CIS and Baltic countries, functioning in the operational regime at the Central Aerological Observatory (CAO). The monitoring system uses the data obtained from the national network of filter ozonometers, M-124 type, which is under methodological supervision of the Main Geophysical Observatory; proper operation of the system is under operational control based on observations obtained from the OMI satellite equipment (U.S. NASA). The basic TO observation data for each month of the third quarter of 2008 and for a whole quarter are generalized. Results of regular surface ozone observations, carried out by the CAO in the Moscow park zone that largely characterize the air quality in the surface layer of the Moscow region in a warm season are also considered.
