The 1974 investigation of oxidants in the mid-western United States involved several research groups situated in various points in the Ohio Valley. The Battelle Laboratory group was positioned in Dayton, Ohio. The data collection was carried out over a 20-day period between July 17 and August 12, 1974. Interpretations of the results are discussed in terms of statistical, graphical, chemical, and meteorological analyses of the data. The data suggest that no single source of ozone, be it urban transport, natural, emissions, stratospheric, etc. can account for the ozone patterns observed in this and other studies.
