A study was conducted in the Ohio Valley area in 1974 to investigate high rural oxidant concentrations above the NAAOS and their possible relationship to urban hydrocarbons. Data regarding the oxidant, nitrogen dioxide, and hydrocarbon relationships were obtained by sampling from a network consisting of five rural and six urban ground stations and an instrumented aircraft. Gases sampled were ozone, nitrogen oxides, and hydrocarbons. Gas chromatograms of grab samples collected at three rural ground stations near Columbus and during aircraft flights were used to identify hydrocarbon species and possible tracers indicative of urban-generated pollution. The implication is that the release of hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen from anthropogenic or biogenic sources, located in either an urban or rural area, all combine to generate appreciable quantities of ozone over wide areas.
