Air pollution associated with wildfire smoke transport and heat wave in summer pose serious public health concerns in the populated New York City (NYC) area. In this study, we present a synergistic lidar, ceilometer and in-situ observation for wildfire smoke transport and planetary-boundary-layer (PBL) variation in the NYC urban and coastal area during the summer 2018 Long Island Sound Tropospheric Ozone (O3) Study (LISTOS). A dense smoke plume and mixing into PBL on August 15-17, 2018 was analyzed while the coincident enhancement of PM2.5, CO and O3 exceedance of NAAQS was demonstrated from both the observation and model. In addition, we show the temporal-spatial variation and difference of the PBL-height (PBLH) in the NYC urban and its coastal vicinity. We further evaluate the NAM-CMAQ model forecast of O3, PM2.5 and PBLH with the ground observations.
