This publication reports on two concurrent sets of field measurements of ozone and precursors which were being conducted in separate regions of the United States from July 1 - October 31, 1975. The first set of measurements spanned the northern portion of the United States from Montana to Pennsylvania. Three continuously operated ground stations (Wolf Point, Mt.; Creston, Ia.; Bradford, Pa.) were used to monitor ambient levels of ozone NO/NOx and 24-hour suspended particulate levels plus the analysis of bag samples for organic pollutants. The main objective of the northern study was to determine the extent to which ozone buildup under conducive meteorological conditions differs in large areas having low and high precursor emission densities. The second set of measurements were taken along the Gulf Coast, primarily in Texas and Louisiana. Continuous monitoring of ozone, NO/NOx and 24-hour total suspended particulates plus collection of bag samples for analysis of organic pollutants was performed at a rural site near DeRidder, Louisiana. The objectives of the southern set of measurements were to document the extent to which ozone levels exceed the Federal ambient standard in this region and to assess the relative importance of long-range transport and local synthesis in determining the high levels of ambient ozone observed near several Texas cities.
