Spatial-Temporal Distribution of Tropospheric Ozone in the Carolina Piedmont Megapolitan Area


Abstract:
Tropospheric ozone, a key component of photochemical smog, is a significant hazard to biological systems. Ozone is of particular concern in highly populated urban regions where large numbers of people may be exposed to unsafe concentrations, resulting in impaired respiratory function and an increased risk of heart disease. This article explores the spatial and temporal distribution of tropospheric ozone within the Carolina Piedmont megapolitan area, and the influence of urban agglomerations over regional air quality.
