Ozone

sgweboz1   sgwebozone2

Every spring and fall, Shamrock students work with Clean Air Carolina to monitor our ozone garden. Although ground-level ozone is invisible, the damage that it does to plants during a long, hot summer can be clearly seen. Students observe the fresh green leaves in the spring, and then chart the damage done when they return in the fall.
