Photochemical O3 is formed in the atmosphere as a result of complex non-liner interaction of meteorology, emission distribution and chemical reactions. To investigate the urban O3 reduction strategy a three-dimensional grid model including meteorology, chemistry and emissions based on the real conditions should be needed.
