An ozone (O3) dosimetry model is presented that takes into account convection and diffusion of O3 in the lumen and airspaces of the lower respiratory tract and transport and chemical reactions in the mucous and surfactant layers and in the underlying tissue and capillaries. The model was applied to human airway morphometric data. Values for the chemical and physical parameters that define the liquid tissue and blood compartments were based on reported experimental data.
