In order to study global and regional distributions of ozone and its pre-
cursors, airborne experiments are regularly conducted by European insti-
It has been shown that intertropical regions have an important
influence on the global distributions of photooxidants.
In this study, chemi-
cal fields of ozone, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides obtained over Ivory
Coast during TROPOZ I experiment (December 1987) are presented and
discussed in connection with their dynamical context.
Ozone is a key element in atmospheric chemistry.
In the troposphere, it is
mainly produced by photochemical processes from various precursors (CO,
CHU, NMHC) in presence of nitrogen oxides.
One major environment prob-
lem is related to tropospheric ozone increase, d...
