This report describes the results of a study to characterize the oxidant problem in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. Emphasis is placed on ambient monitoring data on ozone, nitrogen oxides and nonmethane hydrocarbon concentrations observed during Summer, 1976. Additional data collected during the study and summarized in the report include: surface and upper air meteorological data, aircraft observations of O3, NO, NOx, SO2, and condensation nuclei, and hydrocarbon species data. Both horizontal and vertical ozone profiles obtained during the two weeks of aircraft sampling in and around the Washington, D.C., area are presented. Results of trajectory studies, hydrocarbon composition analyses, and analyses of the ambient concentration data are summarized in numerous figures and tables. HC and NOx emission inventories compiled by MWCOG are provided.
Prepared under contract no. 68-02-1376, task order no. 27. Issued Sept. 1977. Includes bibliographical references.
