Rates of ozone production were measured directly during the Study of Houston Atmospheric Radical Precursors (SHARP) between 15 April and 31 May 2009. The instrument used to collect data is the Penn State Measurement of Ozone Production Sensor (MOPS). The set of data contains low ozone production days and high ozone production days that developed under different meteorological conditions. Among the data collected, there are three verified episodes of high ozone in Houston. Interesting correlations between measured ozone production and ambient nitrogen oxides have been found. Results from data analysis will be presented.
