A field experiment was conducted in the northwestern Taiwan during 6/15-24/94 as part of a long-term research program to study the characteristics of boundary layer and local circulation and their impact on the distribution and variation in this area during Mei-Yu season. The observations of flow fields were designed along the coastline and right direction from coast to inland where the sea breeze may reach. There were six monitoring stations of the Environmental Protection Administration located in this area, which monitor ambient quality including SO2, NOx, hydrocarbon, CO, and aerosols. The daytime concentrations of measured gases, such as SO2, HNO3, and NH3 were significantly higher than in nighttime concentration. During frontal passage, the diurnal pattern O3 concentration was significantly modified due to the movement of the front, while the particulate matter (PM10), and SO2 were removed from the air due to wet scavenging.
