This publication provides an ozone
climatology for the following four stations across the United States:
Trinidad Head, CA, Boulder, CO, Huntsville, AL, and Wallops Island, VA. This
climatology indicates evidence of stratosphere-troposphere exchange,
boundary layer pollution and fluctuation, and strong seasonal variations.
Figure 2. Monthly averaged
vertical ozone profiles (partial pressure in mPa) for Trinidad Head,
California (black); Boulder, Colorado (blue); Huntsville, Alabama (green);
and Wallops Island, Virginia (red). The number of launches at each
site for each month are indicated on the charts.
These monthly mean profiles collected
for this study show the evidence of seasonally varying stratospheric
ozone maxima along with a relative constancy in the profiles across the
country (west coast to east coast).
