Observed relationships of ozone air pollution with temperature and emissions

  title={Observed relationships of ozone air pollution with temperature and emissions},
  author={Bryan J. Bloomer and Jeffrey W. Stehr and Charles A. Piety and Ross J Salawitch and Russell R Dickerson},
[1] Higher temperatures caused by increasing greenhouse gas concentrations are predicted to exacerbate photochemical smog if precursor emissions remain constant. We perform a statistical analysis of 21 years of ozone and temperature observations across the rural eastern U.S. The climate penalty factor is defined as the slope of the ozone/temperature relationship. For two precursor emission regimes, before and after 2002, the climate penalty factor was consistent across the distribution of ozone… CONTINUE READING
