Ozone modeling system and emission control strategies for the Lake Tahoe Basin
Final Report [pdf]
Please contact Dr. Darko Koracin with questions regarding the final report.
There is growing concern about the effects of ozone (O3) on air quality in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Ozone levels in the Tahoe Basin have been increasing and have led to exceedances of current California air quality standards. This trend can have serious implications with respect to human and ecosystem health. This area is currently designated as a nonattainment-transitional zone for O3 by the California Air Resources Board. A robust emission control strategy is needed and can only be achieved with a detailed understanding of the processes affecting the local and regional O3 formation, transport and dispersion patterns by using measurements and modeling.
The project team conducted a comprehensive modeling study to:
