The calculation of three atmospheric models, tow showing that Martian atmospheric parameters still range widely in possible extreme values. The third is conjectured from the supposition that even a relatively small amount of oxygen will give rise to some ozone and, hence, to appreciable amounts of stratospheric heating. These three models allow the prediction of ranges of Martian atmospheric conditions for specific heights up to 180 km over middle and low latitudes, and season or hour.
