The Photochemical Assessment Monitoring Station (PAMS) requires surface and upper-air meterological data to assist in the development and evaluation of new ozone control strategies, emissions tracking, trend analysis, exposure assessment, and numerical modeling. This paper provides a summary of the meteorological monitoring activities in support of PAMS planned for the 1997 summer ozone season. The results of several air quality studies coducted in PAMS areas are cited as examples of the importance of meteorological data in assessing ozone and precursor transport and dispersion.
