Exposure of agricultural area to ozone (exposure expressed as AOT40 in (µg/m3).h) in EEA member countries
In the Air Quality Directive (2008/50/EC) the target value for protection of vegetation is set to 18 000 (µg/m3).h while the long-term objective is set to 6 000 (µg/m3).h. Iceland, Switzerland and Turkey have not been included in the analyses due to lack of detailed land cover data and/or rural ozone data.
