Severe measures concerting the mobility of people have been implemented worldwide to contain the spread of COVID-19. This exceptional situation during COVID-19 can serve as a chemical experiment that expands our understanding of photochemical processes in the atmosphere. In this study, we analyze changes in the urban air quality during COVID lockdown restrictions, especially changes in O3 concentrations due to drastic NO2 reductions, in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona. Model results are evaluated against ground monitoring stations available in this area.
