Details

Tropospheric ozone is a ubiquitous air pollutant and the third largest greenhouse gas contributor to radiative forcing of climate change. Global models provide insight into the past, present and possible future spatial and temporal distributions of tropospheric ozone.

This study used global models to assess the influence on tropospheric ozone of changes in anthropogenic activities (in particular, emissions of ozone precursors), and the potential consequences of the associated human-driven climate change.
