This technical paper was released at the forum. The paper was an update on that released in 2007 and summarised ambient air quality trends from 1994 to 2009. It also presented the results of airshed computer modelling of possible emission reduction scenarios to meet the standards for photochemical smog (as ozone) in Sydney.
