stratosphere and the impacts of climate and land-use change on biogenic emissions of ozone precursors. Nevertheless, these studies illustrate that changes in air pollution emissions occurring over the next several decades could potentially have impacts far beyond the regions in which they are emitted, and that in the 21st century, a global perspective may be needed to meet regional air quality objectives.
