This report evaluates five techniques for measuring the transport of ozone and precursors into an urban area. These techniques for measuring the transport of ozone and precursors into an urban area. These techniques were tested in Philadelphia during the summer of 1978. The data collected in the field program indicate that, in general, advection of ozone aloft is the main route by which pollution of photochemical interest is transported into Philadelphia. Transport of ozone along the surface and transport of oxides of nitrogen and non-methane hydrocarbons, both aloft and along the surface, are minimal. Thus, the recommended techniques must primarily be able to quantify the ozone transported aloft. Of the five techniques, three were determined applicable for quantifying the ozone transported aloft.
