Vehicular pollution, emissions due to burning of fossil fuel from industries and nonpoint sources in Kolkata are major sources of air pollution characterized by oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). These pollutants are also responsible for the secondary ozone formation based on their reactivities. In the present study ozone has been monitored hourly every month in residential, industrial,traffic intersections, and petrol pumps in the urban area of Kolkata along with eight hourly nonoxygenated VOCs,carbonyls and NOx. Urban Airshed Model (UAM-V) has been used to simulate ozone on January 14, 2008 in Kolkata’s urban Area. Results of predicted ground level ozone have been in agreement with observed ozone concentrations.
