The approach in this study was twofold. By using the Los Angeles basin as an acknowledged source of oxidants, fine pollution particulates and oxides of nitrogen, it was possible to study certain extremes in the interaction between these elements of the continental air mass and the local coastal marine environment. Secondly, by selecting the proper meteorological conditions for persistent onshore wind flow, it was potentially possible to observe a nearly pure marine aerosol which could be used as a reference or baseline for other measurements along the southern California coast.
