The report describes a four week study of oxides of nitrogen chemistry and ozone transport in and around the southcoast air basin of California in the fall of 1976. The data base was obtained using three ground-level monitoring stations and a twin engine instrumented aircraft. Measurements made at ground sites included ozone, nitric oxide, oxides of nitrogen, nitric acid, peroxyacetylnitrate, sulfur dioxide, Freon-11, nonmethane hydrocarbon, carbon monoxide, methane, ethane, nitrate, sulfate, ammonium, and total nitrogen. The aircraft made up to three flights per day measuring ozone, nitric oxide, oxides of nitrogen, peroxyacetylnitrate, nonmethane hydrocarbon, methane, carbon monoxide, ethylene, ethane, Freon-11 and temperature. The report discusses the ground-station data in terms of aerosol nitrogen balance, size distribution of aerosol constitutents, distribution of oxidized nitrogen, nitrogen/sulfur relationships and nitrogen mass balance. Aircraft data are used to support the ground station data and the conclusions made from data analysis.
