This paper examines the basic policy question: what is the proper ozone standard? To pursue a solution, the legal guidelines of the Clean Air Act will be examined, and the scientific and medical literature on ozone addressed. Once the proper ozone standard is determined, the remainder of the paper will focus on the ozone situation in Maine. Maine is treated as a case study of the ozone pollution problem in the United States. Some of the issues involved are: the nature and properties of ozone, how meteorology and transport of ozone over distance affects the measures of ozone concentration, and the adverse effects of large concentrations of ozone.
