Abstract
Approaches for relating ozone to non-methane hydrocarbon and oxides of nitrogen controls are discussed. All procedures are only applicable in addressing the oxidant problem in urban areas. Available procedures include use of Eulerian and Lagrangian photochemical dispersion models, a new approach called the Empirical Kinetic Modeling Approach (EKMA), proportional rollback and statistical approaches. EKMA, rollback and statistical models are most useful in estimating the degree of reduction needed to attain the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for oxidant and for estimating reduction in maximum hourly ozone concentration accompanying specified levels of precursor controls. Models are useful for these purposes as well as others. The issue of long range transport of ozone/precursors is discussed. It is concluded that ozone transported above the surface-based nocturnal inversion layer is likely to be the facet of transport exhibiting the greatest impact on maximum ozone levels in urban areas. Procedures for integrating transport considerations into the previously mentioned analytical approaches are discussed.
