A grid-based Eulerian airshed model is used to study the effect of specific emission control measures on ambient NO_2, total inorganic nitrate (TN), HNO_3, aerosol nitrate, PAN, NH_3, and ozone concentrations in the Los Angeles area. NO_x and reactive hydrocarbon (RHC) emission reductions of up to 61 and 37%, respectively, are examined. NO_2 and TN concentration reductions in excess of 50% averaged over 20 monitoring sites are achieved at the highest level of emission control studied. The distribution of TN air quality improvements between HNO_3 and aerosol nitrate is affected by the NH_3 emission rate of the NO_x control technologies employed. Peak 1-h O_3 concentrations at many sites in the eastern portion of the air basin studied decline by more than 25% at the highest NO_x and RHC control levels studied.
