This paper provides the annual update of the European air quality concentrations of selected pollutants (PM10 and ozone), their exceedance probability and population exposure estimates for the year 2009. The analysis is based on interpolation of annual statistics of the 2009 observational data reported by EEA Member countries in 2010 and stored in AirBase . The paper presents the mapping results and includes an uncertainty analysis of the interpolated maps, building upon the latest methodological developments.
