Modelling is important in air quality forecasting and control. Before applying an air quality model, it is required to accurately estimate the biogenic emission. The assessment of the background ozone concentration is essential for this estimation. It has been known that the biogenic ozone level in urban areas is changing over the years, and hence information about the temporal trends in air quality data is helpful for the assessment. This paper presents a neural-network metamodel for prediction of the background ozone level in the Sydney basin. Based on measured monitoring data under non-photochemical conditions collected at a number of monitoring stations, the proposed model can reliably provide short-term predictions in the biogenic ozone trends to be used for analysis of ground-level emission impact on air quality.
