Houston air quality chemistry

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A scientific understanding of ozone formation is the key to an effective air quality improvement plan. Thus a tremendous amount of effort has been exerted in the last few years to better understand the role of emissions, atmospheric chemistry and pollutant transport in ozone formation in Houston. No single source can accurately summarize all the efforts devoted to this field, but the intention of this paper is to provide background on the ozone episodes in Houston, describe the emissions and chemistry that results in elevated ozone concentrations in Houston, and describe preliminary findings from the TexAQS II field study during the summer of 2006.
