Unit sometimes used in the description of the total ozone in a column of air overhead. It is given as the thickness (in units of $$10^{-3}\ \text{cm}$$ or $$10^{-5}\ \text{m}$$) of that layer which would be formed by the total ozone in a column reduced to the pressure of $$760\ \text{Torr}$$ and temperature of $$0\ ^{\,\unicode{x26ac}}\text{C}$$.
