Case Studies

The Northern Chesapeake Bay experiences higher ozone than the rest of Maryland, and in fact accounts for most of the ozone exceedances in the entire state. In this 2016/2017 study, the Model 202 was deployed on on Hart Miller Island about 22 km east of downtown Baltimore and 5 km offshore. Maryland Department of the Environment compared the 202’s FEM ozone measurements with FEM/FRM ozone analyzers at other sites in Maryland.

The Middle East is a hot spot for air pollution, owing to urbanization, industrialization, high emissions from petrochemical industries, and the intense solar radiation and high temperatures of the region. The Model 202 was used aboard a research vessel that sailed around the Arabian Peninsula gathering data. The 202’s DewLine Nafion tube and Teflon filter helped to minimize potential interferences from water vapor and particles.

"My research team uses five 2B Technologies Model 202 and 205 ozone analyzers and a Model 306 ozone calibration source. These instruments have been central to my research program on indoor ozone chemistry. They are easy to use, robust, and have required little maintenance over several years."
