  • How much does stratosphere-to-troposphere transport (STT) and long-range transport from Asia contribute to the springtime ozone maximum in Clark County?
  • How much of the transported ozone aloft reaches the Las Vegas Valley and how does it get there? (mixed layer entrainment vs. orographic flows)
  • How much ozone is transported into the Las Vegas Valley from Southern California? (boundary layer vs. free tropospheric transport)
  • How much do wildland fires contribute to late spring ozone in the Las Vegas Valley?
