Potential impacts of climate change on tropospheric ozone in
California: A preliminary episodic modeling assessment of the Los Angeles
basin and the Sacramento valley
In this preliminary and relatively short modeling effort, an initial assessment is made for the potential air quality implications of climate change in California. The focus is mainly on the effects of changes in temperature and related meteorological and emission factors on ozone formation. Photochemical modeling is performed for two areas in the state: the Los Angeles Basin and the Sacramento Valley.
