One of the objectives of the 1997 Southern California Ozone Study (SCOS97) was to provide an up-to-date assessment of the importance of biogenic emissions for tropospheric ozone production in the South Coast Air Basin. To this end ambient air samples were collected during September 1997 at the Azusa air monitoring station, for subsequent measurement of their radiocarbon (-14 C) content. The radiocarbon sampling conducted during SCOS97 was unique in that all three phases of atmospheric organic matter (volatile organic compounds (VOC), semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOC), and aerosol) were simultaneously and separately collected. This article summarizes progress to date in analyzing the vegetative, gasoline, and ambient CO2 and VOC samples.
