The Kinetics Model and Ozone Isopleth Plotting Package (OZIPP) computer program can be used to simulate ozone formation in urban atmospheres. OZIPP calculates maximum one-hour average ozone concentrations given a set of input assumptions about initial precursor concentrations, light intensity, dilution, diurnal and spatial emission patterns, transported pollutant concentrations, and reactivity of the precursor mix. The results of multiple simulations are used to produce an ozone isopleth diagram tailored to particular cities. Such a diagram relates maximum ozone concentrations to concentrations of non-methane hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen, and can be used in the Empirical Kinetic Modeling Approach (EKMA) to calculate emission reductions necessary to achieve air quality standards for photochemical oxidants...Software Description: This program is written in the Fortran programming language for implementation on a UNIVAC 1110 computer using the EXEC-8 operating system. 41K words of core storage are required to operate the model.
