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, TX. A discussion covers ozone episodes in Houston; emissions and chemistry that results in elevated ozone concentrations in Houston; preliminary findings from the TexAQS II field study during the summer of 2006; developing the most effective emission control strategy to meet the health-based NAAQS for ozone; and emissions from local refining and petrochemical sources. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Spring Meeting - 19th Ethylene Producers Conference (Houston, TX 4/22-27/2007).
