TROPOSPHERIC OZONE: COUPLING TRANSPORT AND PHOTOCHEMISTRY.

Published

Journal Article

The budget of tropospheric ozone is reexamined in the light of lower observed nitrogen oxide densities and revised reaction rates. To estimate the relative importance of transport and photochemistry, model calculations are presented which determine one-dimensional vertical ozone profiles at mid-latitudes for equinoctial conditions. These calculations imply that both photochemistry and transport are important in controlling the abundance of tropospheric ozone. The sensitivy of the model calculations to transport parameters, key rate coefficients, and nitrogen oxide densities are discussed.
