Here are a few hints and tips to help you around the tour before you start.
The best approach is to follow Parts I, II, III and IV in sequence as there are some terms and information described in the early sections that are referred to in the later sections. However, if you just want to 'dip in', that's fine. Each section is not very long and is broken down into various subsections for clarity.
The Glossary Doubtless some of the terms and words used might be unfamiliar. For this reason, we provide a 'glossary' which can be found on the buttons on the bottom of the each page of the tour. Also, key terms and phrases in the text are linked to explanations in the glossary. If you click on these phrases, you open the glossary at that phrase. The glossary opens in a separate window so that you can keep it for reference whilst you read the Ozone Tour.
These web pages were tested using Netscape v3 and will probably display best using Netscape v3 or later. Many of the pages on this tour use more HTML features like tables for formatting, and variable-pitch fonts to display equations. Some old browsers have trouble interpreting these, and don't display them correctly.
All the inlined images in this tour are GIFs. Many are thumbnails, i.e. minatures: clicking on a thumbnail will bring back a larger copy of the image.
There are a number of movies on this presentation and we use three different formats:
InLine: This is where the browser continually reads the images and
updates it. Gives bigger and better animation than mpeg movies but it needs a
connection to a fast network. The advantage is that you don't need a helper application
or a plugin setup for your browser.
You'll need Netscape 1.1 or better, or another browser which
supports dynamic documents, as well as a fast network connection! Don't
try this with a browser which doesn't support dynamic documents - you'll get
nowhere very slowly ...|
|MPEG: Mpeg movies are quite small, but tend to be of poor quality for computer-generated images such as the ones in this tour. You will need an mpeg player set up for your browser. Check your 'Helper Applications' in your 'Options' menu for your browser.|
||QuickTime: Apple Computer's QuickTime movie format is rapidly becoming a standard for efficient animation on the web. To play quicktime movies, you need the quicktime plugin for Apple Macs and PCs - or on a Mac save the file and use MoviePlayer. For Unix machines, you need the xanim program configured as a helper application. Check your browser's Preferences.|
Here are two example movie links:

| Evolution of ClONO2
over the North Pole during winter 1994 (small) |
|Evolution of ClONO2
over the North Pole during winter 1994 (large)|
|VRML: You may have heard of VRML - a virtual reality modelling language for the WWW. Some VRML stills of output of the model runs are included in this presentation. To view them (and it's well worth it!) we use the WebSpace software - but there are others. Take a look at Silicon Graphics' WebSpace page.|
