Relationships between ambient air quality and sea breeze conditions in southern New England are examined. In the Boston area, sea breeze conditions were observed on approximately 25% of the days of the study (July-August 1975). The sea breeze effect can either moderate or enhance the pollution levels in the Boston area. However, the most common course for the sea breeze is to have a cleansing effect. Therefore, ozone levels are generally lower during sea breeze conditions. In the Groton area of Connecticut, a well-developed sea breeze effect was observed almost daily. High ozone concentrations usually coincided with a sea breeze effect. Measurements from aircraft over Long Island and the Atlantic ocean show that air pollutants are advected into the Groton area by the sea breeze. The pollutants over the ocean were part of the large urban plume originating in the New York City-New Jersey area.
