Ozone isopleth plot

From Glossary of Meteorology



ozone isopleth plot

A plot in which contours of tropospheric ozone are plotted as a function of the active nitrogen mixing ratio versus total hydrocarbon mixing ratio.

Regions where ozone production is limited by the availability of nitrogen oxides or by hydrocarbons are readily apparent in such a plot.
