within large tables.
table titles should be placed immediately above the table referenced, but should
not appear as part of the table itself. Tables should be formatted as follows:
4. List of the coefficient A
and constant C for the different site-specific ozone prediction models.
in the case of tables, figures should be placed in the body text just after the
first point of reference. Figures include charts, graphs, drawings, and
line-art. Do not place them on separate pages at the end of your manuscript.
figures must also be submitted as high quality (300 dpi or higher) in the
