The map shows the proximity of measured O3 concentrations to the target value set in the European Union's Air Quality Directive. At sites marked with dark orange and red dots, the daily maximum 8-hour mean O3 concentration exceeds the 120 μg/m3 threshold on more than 25 days per year (the policy target is set at max. 25 days of exceedance per year, averaged over 3 years).

When travelling to exotic places, choose your souvenirs carefully.
Trade in items such as woodcarvings, red coral or ornaments with fur or feathers, is often regulated and permits are required to bring them home. Check the rules, as there are strict laws governing exports of wildlife and you could risk having your souvenir confiscated.
