A study of oxidant transport was conducted in New England over a 6-week period, from July 15 to August 22, 1975. A well equipped mobile laboratory was set up at a rural Connecticut airport, and a long-range, twin-engine airplane was outfitted for wide area and vertical aerial sampling. The mobile laboratory was equipped to continuously monitor O3, NO, NO2, NOx, CH4, C2H2, C2H4, C2H6, non-methane hydrocarbon, fluorocarbon 11 (F-11), CCl4, CO, temperature, solar intensity, relative humidity, wind speed, wind direction, and barometric pressure. The airplane was outfitted to continuously monitor ozone, nitric oxide, and temperature and to collect air samples in Teflon bags. The bag samples were analyzed for Fluorocarbon 11 (F-11), CH4, NMHC, CO, C2H2, C2H4, C2H6, and CCl4. Forty-four monitoring flights were conducted during the field study; each flight averaged approximately 3 hours and cover between 400-500 miles. Flights were also made to Ohio, Canada, and 250 miles out over the ocean. The experimental methods used during the study are described and the compiled data are presented.
