The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency conducted a major monitoring project in Atlanta, Georgia during the summer of 1990 to obtain an information base for the development of guidance addressing the reduction of ozone in cities currently out of compliance with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ozone. The specific objective of the study was to obtain a comprehensive data base of ambient concentrations of ozone and ozone precursors during the 1990 summer ozone season at six sites distributed across the Atlanta urban area. The data base has been and will continue to be used to address a number of questions relating to spatial and temporal variations in the concentrations of these pollutants and pollutant ratios, questions about the adequacy of precursor monitoring requirements for air quality models, and the accuracy of pollutant emission data used in these models. The objectives, approach, and design of the primary study will be described and brief descriptions of several ancillary experiments will be presented.
