Short summary
In this study, we find that SST increases of a specific ocean in the Northern Hemisphere tend to increase summertime surface O3 concentrations over upwind continents while reducing those over downwind regions. It also promotes a more stagnant climate, which tends to suppress O3 long-range transport. Our findings indicate a robust linkage between basin-scale SST variability and continental surface O3 pollution, which should be taken into account for air quality management.
