New Study Examines Hawaiian Ozone Changes

Sunday, Jan 26, 2014

In a new study led by AOS Research Scholar Meiyun Lin, researchers found that since the mid-1990s, shifts in atmospheric circulation have caused Asian ozone pollution reaching Hawaii to be relatively low in spring but rise significantly in autumn. The findings, published online Jan. 26 in Nature Geosciences, indicate that variability in airflow patterns must be considered when attributing observed ozone changes to human-induced trends in precursor emissions.   The study can be found here
