Abstract
In a research program to measure composition and concentration of smog constituents in a moving air parcel, SRI outfitted a houseboat for use as a mobile laboratory and used a helicopter as an airborne laboratory. From these laboratories a research team made measurements over San Francisco Bay in the autumn of 1972. Four sampling days were analyzed extensively, and the observed measurements were correlated. The data from the four selected days were analyzed to determine the correlation of the ratio (NO)(O3)/(NO2) to solar intensity and NO concentrations. Operational techniques and the appropriate logistics were developed to effectively coordinate the surface and airborne mobile laboratories. The measurement data obtained could provide useful data for simulation modeling at concentration levels equivalent to air quality standards. (Modified author abstract)
