Ozone pollution near Earth’s surface is one of the main ingredients of summertime smog and a primary cause of poor air quality. Yet it is not directly measurable from space because of the abundance of ozone higher in the atmosphere, which obscures measurements of surface NASA-funded researchers have devised a way to use satellites to measure the precursor gases that contribute to. At most rural surface sites, ozone concentrations have been found to vary over a diurnal cycle with a minimum in the early morning hours before dawn and a maximum in the late afternoon (Figure ). concentrations measured at urban-suburban, rural, and remote sites from Table The National Academies Press. doi: /

Ground level ozone concentrations at a rural location in northern Spain Article in Science of The Total Environment () October with 19 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Introduction. Ground-level ozone (O 3) is regarded as one of the most significant atmospheric photochemical to the increasing motorized traffic, industrial and agricultural activities, tropospheric ozone concentrations increased substantially in recent decades [1, 2].Dense ozone near ground level adversely affects human health, ecological system, and cultural heritage Cited by: ASSESSING THE IMPACT OF GROUND LEVEL OZONE ON AGRICULTURAL CROPS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM This study is based on O3 data collected from 23 Automatic Urban and Rural Network (AURN) sites, over a 5.

Ground-level ozone is a regional concern, since the pollutant and its precursors can be transported by wind and travel long distances. Furthermore, it is frequently measured at higher concentrations in rural rather than urban locations because of “ozone scavenging.” Urban environments typically have higher concentrations of nitrogen oxides.

Ground-level ozone, commonly known as smog, is formed when emissions of ozone precursors from power plants, factories, cars and other sources react with sunlight in the atmosphere. While declining emissions of ozone precursors in recent years has reduced smog in many communities across the country, current ozone concentrations still affect.

Janu — Ground-level ozone, or O 3, is a hazard to human health and the environment, causing respiratory problems and exacerbating asthma while also harming some vegetation and d when by-products of combustion interact with sunlight, it may cause more than a million deaths each year around the world, along with tens of billions of dollars in crop losses.

Ozone can be “good” or “bad” for health and the environment depending on where it’s found in the atmosphere. Stratospheric ozone is “good” because it protects living things from ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Ground-level ozone, the topic of this website, is “bad” because it can trigger a variety of health problems, particularly for children, the elderly, and people of.

Ozone (O 3) is a trace gas of the troposphere, with an average concentration of 20–30 parts per billion by volume (ppbv), with close to ppbv in polluted areas. Ozone is also an important constituent of the stratosphere, where the ozone layer exists which is located between 10 and 50 kilometers about the earths surface.

The troposphere is the lowest layer of the Earth's atmosphere. Improving air quality and addressing the formation of ground level ozone, or smog, is a major public policy issue in the United States and around the world. In order to reduce ozone levels, federal and state agencies are implementing programs to reduce NOx and VOC emissions from a variety of sources, and also products that contain solvents such as paints and coatings.

The process of prevailing winds carrying ground level ozone away from the original source is called transport. For example, if large amounts of NOx are transported to a rural area, filled with trees that are naturally releasing VOCs, a large amount of ground level ozone can form in the rural area.

Ground–level ozone is a well–known secondary air pollutant, the chemical dynamics of which are governed by nonlinear photochemical processes (Trainer et al., ).This gas is largely formed by reactions with nitrogen oxides and some volatile organic compounds in the presence of sunlight (e.g.

Sillman, ; Seinfeld and Pandis, ).Cited by: 9. The rural station for measuring ozone was installed at the Low Atmosphere Research Centre (CIBA) located in the geographical centre of the upper Spanish plateau (lat: 41°49′02″ N, long: 4°56′15″ W, alt: m), as shown in Fig.

The 8-hour ozone levels in were the second lowest on record (Exhibit 1), and the number of trend sites measuring ozone concentrations above the level of the 8-hour NAAQS decreased by 65 percent over the time frame covered in this indicator (Exhibit 2).

This UCARConnect animation explains what ground-level ozone is, how it is created, the harm it can do, why it's most common in summer months, and what people can do.

The layer closest to the Earth's surface is the troposphere. Here, ground-level or "bad" ozone is an air pollutant that is harmful to breathe and it damages crops, trees and other vegetation.

It is a main ingredient of urban smog. The troposphere generally extends to a level about 6 miles up, where it meets the second layer, the stratosphere. We classified Ground-level ozone concentrations as a case study. Key findings.

From towith one exception inground-level ozone concentrations were consistently within the WHO short-term guideline and the national short-term standard at all three monitoring sites.

Monitoring Ground-Level Ozone from Space By Don Comis Aug Satellite views of the Midwestern United States show that ozone levels above 50 parts per billion (ppb) along the ground could reduce soybean yields by at least 10 percent, costing more than $1 billion in lost crop production, according to U.S.

Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientists. Rural and Urban Ozone Relationships In New York State William N. Stasiuk, Jr. and Peter E. Coffey New York State Department of Environmental Conservation High ozone concentrations, often in excess of the national ambient air quality standard for photochemical oxidants, have been measured simultaneously in urban and rural areas of New York State.

A look at the ground level ozone concentrations between New York City and Riverhead. The ozone forecast seasons are based on when each region is likely to experience elevated ozone concentrations.

Each forecast predicts whether ozone levels in the area are expected to reach or exceed the EPA’s AQI Level Orange—an 8-hour average of 71 parts per billion or a 1-hour average of ppb. TECHNICAL REPORT OF ICP FORESTS GROUND LEVEL OZONE CONCENTRATIONS AND EXPOSURES FROM TO | 63 Figure Box plots of April–September ozone concentration values from passive samplers processed data in 20 countries from (n = 29 ).CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Ground-level ozone is an important component of urban smog that is formed from reactions involving nitrogen oxides (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the presence of sunlight.

The motor vehicle is a major source of both NOx and VOCs. Ozone is a respiratory irritant, and has been associated with a decline.Although there was about twice the difference in VOC concentrations between the urban and rural sites, nearly 65% ozone formation potential was contributed to by the same 9 VOCs.

Seasonal patterns showed peak ozone levels in autumn and minima in summer at the urban site, but minima in winter at the downwind suburban and rural by:
