The report is a continuation of an earlier effort to study the impact of mesoscale convective precipitation systems upon distributions of aerosol and photochemical oxidant pollutants in the planetary boundary layer (PBL). Analyses of surface visibility and ozone data revealed a dramatic response in the boundary layer pollutant patterns to the passage of two very large convective storm systems. Regional visibilities, at times less than 5 km, increased dramatically over a multistate area to as high as 80 km. The resultant clean air region was termed a convective aerosol removal event (CARE). In the study, a well defined CARE was found off the Georgia coast on 14 August 1980.
