The area of Norfolk, Virginia, being well displaced from large urban centers and having the Atlantic Ocean at its eastern border, appears to be sheltered from air pollution originating in other urban sources. The area frequently, however, records high concentrations of ozone. Maximum hourly concentrations exceeded 80 parts per billion in the Hampton Roads area during 40 percent of the days in July and August 1974. The ozone data for that period are analyzed in this report. Emphasis is given to the potential for the high concentrations to have been transported in from distant upwind urban areas. Other meteorological phenomena associated with the high concentrations of ozone are also discussed.
