  1. Topical Collection on Air Pollution


When developing ozone control strategies, the empirical kinetic modeling approach curve cannot easily be applied to practical problems. On this basis, the ozone production efficiency (OPE) is proposed as an indicator to represent the effects of NOx on ozone. The research results of the OPE are reviewed and include the definition and calculation of OPE, observations and model simulations, several factors affecting the OPE, and the application of OPE. The measurements and applications of the OPE have improved and become widespread after decades of development. OPE is mostly used to measure regional atmospheric oxidation characteristics, which play an important role when developing ozone control strategies (especially in highly polluted areas). However, there have been few studies on the advancement of chemical mechanisms in the OPE in recent years. In addition, there is no detailed interpretation of the strong linear correlation between ozone and NOz. The results may be significant for improving simulation results and understanding the formation of ozone.
