CLIMAS: Models of meteorologically adjusted long-term ozone trends at ten stationsEntry ID: CLIMAS_AirQuality_OzoneTrends_10stations
Abstract: Models of meteorologically adjusted long-term ozone trends at ten stations. Thin blue lines represent the unadjusted data that have been smoothed to show the long-term trend through the study period. Thick green lines show estimated ozone values with the influence of meteorology removed. Ozone is strongly influenced by both meteorological conditions and local emissions sources. As a result, long-term ozone trends are highly variable and not particularly well-correlated across the region, although in general there are indications that concentrations may have decreased in recent years after several years of increases in the 1990s.
