Short summary
The occurrence of high O3 levels with high PM2.5 concentrations constitutes a dilemma for the design of O3 control strategies in Xi’an and surrounding areas. If the O3 mitigation approach decreases aerosols in the atmosphere directly or indirectly, the enhanced photolysis caused by aerosol reduction would compensate for the O3 loss. If only the PM2.5 control strategy is implemented, the O3 pollution will decrease.
