Short summary
Background ozone transported into cities contributes greatly to urban concentrations. Based on projections of past trends, the largest ozone concentrations on which the 70 ppb National Ambient Air Quality Standard is based will reach that standard by ∼ 2021 in the New York City area but much later (∼ 2050) in the Los Angeles region. The much smaller background contribution in New York City (45.8 ± 1.7 ppb) than in Los Angeles (62.0 ± 2.0 ppb) is the primary reason for this large difference.
