Abstract A detailed analysis of results from the Regional Ozone Modeling for Northeast Transport (ROMNET) study has been conducted to examine the conditions under which alternative control strategies were predicted to be effective in improving air quality. The ROMNET study had predicted that for most of the northeastern United States, reducing nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions by about 60 percent would be more effective in reducing ozone (O3) than reducing anthropogenic reactive organic gas (ROG) emissions by approximately the same proportion. However, for the New York City and Baltimore-Washington areas, ROG controls were predicted to be highly effective and NOx controls to be counterproductive. The authors recommend further investigation of the idea that NOy concentrations could serve as an indicator of the likely sensitivity of O3 to ROG or NOx controls, if NOy is monitored along with peak O3 during photochemical air pollution episodes.
