An attempt has been made to construct a mean vertical distribution of ozone over the equatorial site, Thumba (8.5°N, 76.9°E) using 19 ozone profiles obtained during 1980 to 1984 using rocket-borne in situ measurements in the altitude region of 20–60 km. For the 0–20 km region the mean of the several ozone profiles obtained from balloon ozonesonde is used. This mean ozone profile (0–60 km) which can be used as a reference profile shows the ozone maximum at 27 km with a ozone concentration of 3.45×1012 molecules/cc. The profile is also compared with various available satellite results for the equatorial region and mid-latitude K&M ozone model and discussed.
