Ozone is not directly emitted into the atmosphere, but is instead a secondary pollutant that is formed from a variety of atmospheric reactants in the presence of sunlight. The magnitude of ozone concentrations in urban areas, for example, along the eastern sea-board of the United States depends upon the transport of ozone and its precursors into the domain, precursors emitted within the domain, the rate at which chemical reactions take place, deposition of pollutants within the domain, and transport and diffusion of pollutants out of the domain.
