Several simultaneous research projects to study local ozone pollution occurred at four sites across Texas in 2017: Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and El Paso. Data collected include surface and balloon sonde measurements, with the latter having payloads to measure ozone and meteorological data. These data provide insights into the production and transport of tropospheric ozone. An analysis of the data collected at these sites, their place within the context of the larger dataset, and a comparison of the meteorological and geographical setup at each site is presented. Additional insights are derived from viewing the data from these four sites together, including identification of different characteristics of the air sheds that influence surface ozone.
