Abstract: The Tropospheric Ozone Pollution Project (TOPP) began at Rice during the Summer of 2004 to study air quality in Houston using weather balloons. More than a decade later, TOPP has collected nearly 1000 ozone profiles from 17 sites around the world. This talk presents some of the most intriguing results from our studies.
