      TROPOSPHERIC OZONE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY One type of tropospheric impact of the alternative halocarbons may arise from their possible contribu-tion as precursors to the formation of 03 and other oxidants on urban and global scales. In the present assessment the following specific issues related to tropospheric oxidants are addressed: 1. long-term health effects and a lower quality of life.! Scientists suspect that ozone may have other effects on people’s health. Ozone may aggravate chronic lung diseases, such as emphysema and bron-chitis. Also, studies in animals suggest that ozone may reduce the immune system’s ability to fight off bacterial infections in the respiratory.

Ozone and Oxidants Ozone (O 3) is a reactive gas that has been associated with adverse health effects in children and adults. Effects on the respiratory system are well established and include exacerbation of asthma (acute effects) and effects on lung growth (chronic effects).

Effects of Photochemical Oxidants on Materials: In FebruaryEPA released the final document, Air Quality Criteria for Ozone and Other Photochemical Oxidants. Tropospheric or surface-level ozone (O3) is one of six major air pollutants regulated by National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) under the U.S.

Clean Air Act. As mandated by the Clean Air Act, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) must periodically.

As ozone concentrates and mixes with other pollutants, we often call it by its older, more common name—smog. It is currently one of the least well-controlled pollutants in the United States.

1 And it is also one of the most dangerous. Scientists have studied the effects of ozone on health for decades. sphotochemic~ oxidants effects, ozone are a group of chemically related pollutants, From the standpoint of health and welfare 1S the mOSt importmt photochemical oxidant.

Inthe chemical designation of the standards was changed from photochemical oxidants to ozone (O3). This document focuses primarily on the scientific air quality criteria for O3 and, to a lesser extent, on those for other photochemical oxidants such as hydrogen peroxide and the peroxyacyl nitrates.

The Clean Air Act requires EPA to set National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) National Ambient Air Quality StandardsNational Ambient Air Quality Standards established by EPA for six "criteria" pollutants in outdoor air. NAAQS are currently set for carbon monoxide, lead, ground-level ozone, nitrogen dioxide, particulate matter, and sulfur dioxide.

The photochemical oxidants are secondary air pollutants formed by the action of sunlight on nitrogen oxides and reactive. This document, Air Quality Criteria for Ozone and Other Photochemical Oxidants, is an updated revision of the Ozone Air Quality Criteria Document (O3 AQCD) that provided scientific bases for the current O3 NAAQS set in In the presence of sunlight, nitrogen oxides combine with hydrocarbons to form a secondary class of pollutants, the photochemical oxidants, among them ozone and the eye-stinging peroxyacetylnitrate (PAN).

Nitrogen oxides also react with oxygen in the air to form nitrogen dioxide, a. Photochemical smog has devastating effects on the environment. The collection of chemicals found in photochemical smog causes problems for plants and animal life.

Some plants such as tobacco, tomato and spinach are highly responsive to ozone, so photochemical smog can decimate these sensitive crops, trees and other vegetation.

One of the major unanswered questions about the health effects of ozone is whether repeated episodes of damage, inflammation, and repair induced by years of recurrent short-term ozone exposures result in adverse health effects beyond the acute effects themselves.

EPA announced the availability of the final report, Integrated Science Assessment of Ozone and Related Photochemical Oxidants. This document represents a concise synthesis and evaluation of the most policy-relevant science and will ultimately provide the scientific bases for EPA’s decision regarding the adequacy of the current national ambient air quality standards for ozone to protect human.pollutant ozone is in the troposphere and is formed by photochemical reaction driven by the (AQI) for reporting the levels of ozone and other pollutants, and their effects on human health.
