Short summary
Understanding of the variability of ozone (O3) in space and time is essential to the design of efficient air quality controls. We used statistical analysis of O3, nitrogen oxides (NOx) and weather measurements to estimate the large-scale contributions of O3 and NOx in southeastern Texas. We found that these “external” contributions have declined over time, likely due to a combination of controls on O3 precursors and increases in the frequency of prevailing southerly flow from the Gulf of Mexico.
