The revised staff paper evaluates and interprets the available scientific and technical information that the EPA staff believe is most relevant to the review of primary (health) and secondary (welfare) national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for ozone (O3) and presents staff recommendations on alternative approaches to revising the standards. The staff reviewed scientific and technical information on the known and potential health effects of O3. On the basis of the review, the staff derives the following conclusions. (1) Inhaled O3 may pose health risks as a result of (a) penetration of O3 into various regions of the respiratory tract and (2) The risks of adverse effects associated with absorption of O3 in the tracheobronchial and alveolar regions of the respiratory tract are much greater than for absorption in the extrathoracic region (head). The staff has also reviewed the scientific and technical information on the known and potential effects of O3 on vegetation, natural ecosystems and materials.
