Short summary
In this study, we find that land surface changes via urbanization have caused reductions (increases) in air temperature and ventilation during the day (night) in Southern California. Changes in meteorology have consequently caused (a) increases in PM2.5 during the day, vice versa at night, and (b) increases in O3 for most times of day. These results suggest that all environmental systems should be taken into account when studying the influence of policies that impact the land surface in cities.
In this study, we find that land surface changes via urbanization have caused reductions...
