Abstract: A risk assessment of ozone (O3) impact on the annual carbon absorption (ACA) of Japanese representative conifers was conducted based on the results of an experimental study, monitoring data of oxidant concentrations and vegetation surveys. The areas with high O3-induced reduction in ACA did not necessarily correspond to the areas with relatively high O3-exposure. Widespread distribution of O3-sensitive tree species such as Pinus densiflora and Larix kaempferi, and high ACA were important factors that induced a high risk of O3 impact on the ACA. Therefore, we concluded that not only the accumulated O3-exposure but also the variety of tree habitat, the tree sensitivity to O3 and the ACA among the tree species must be taken into account to assess the risk of O3 impact on the ACA of Japanese conifers. The O3-induced reduction in the total ACA of the three tree species in Japan was estimated to be 0.8%.
