Short summary
We employed ground observations of ozone and satellite products of HCHO and NO2 to investigate spatiotemporal variations of ozone formation regimes across China. Two different models were employed for determining the crucial thresholds that separate three ozone formation regimes, including NOx-limited, VOC-limited, and transitional regimes. The close output from two different models provides a reliable reference for better understanding ozone formation regimes.
