Short summary
Emission sensitivity studies, using WRF-Chem at 1.3km that was validated by observations, indicate the Arizona (AZ) emissions dominate on daily maximum 8-hr average (DMA8) [O3] in Phoenix (PHX). Southern California (SoCal) emission contribute to DMA8 [O3] for the PHX from a few ppb to over 30 ppb. [O3] from SoCal and AZ emissions exhibits diurnal characteristics. Pollutants near the SoCal coasts are transported to PHX by local circulations with different mechanisms.
