- The given statement is false.
- The total amount of ozone above the surface of the Earth varies with location on time scales that range from daily to seasonal.
- The variations are caused by stratospheric winds and the chemical production and destruction of ozone.
- Total ozone is generally lowest at the equator and highest near the poles because of the seasonal wind patterns in the stratosphere.
- Therefore, the correct statement would be that the total ozone is not uniform over the globe.
