Annex I

Observed exceedances of ozone threshold values and annual statistics in 1995 at individual monitoring stations reporting in the framework of the Council Directive 92/72/EEC on air pollution by ozone

Information on ozone exceedances and concentrations for the individual stations reporting in the framework of the Ozone Directive is available in computer readable form only. A Microsoft Excel-file containing the following tables is available:

Table I.1: Number of days on which exceedances of threshold values (180 µg/m3 and 200 µg/m3 for hourly values; 110 µg/m3 for 8-hourly values and 65 µg/m3 for daily values) have been observed at reporting monitoring stations, period 1 January - 31 December 1995.

Table I.2: The longest period of consecutive days on which exceedances of threshold values have been observed at reporting monitoring stations, period 1 January - 31 December 1995.

Table I.3: Average length (in days) of periods of consecutive days on which exceedances of threshold values have been observed at reporting monitoring stations, period 1 January - 31 December 1995.

Table I.4: Annual statistics (percentiles and maximum values) of hourly and moving eight hourly ozone concentrations for reporting monitoring stations; all concentrations in µg/m3; period: 1 January - 31 December 1995.

Table I.5: Annual statistics (averaged, 50-, 95- and 98- percentile values) of hourly NOx concentrations for reporting monitoring stations; all concentrations in µg/m3; period: 1 January - 31 December 1995.

Table I.6: Annual statistics (averaged, 50-, 95- and 98- percentile values) of hourly NO2 concentrations for reporting monitoring stations; all concentrations in µg/m3; period: 1 January - 31 December 1995.

Notes to the Tables

Table I.1

Exceedances of the threshold value of 360 µg/m3 for hourly values has been observed at one station:

Country Stationname & City Date, time Max conc (µg/m3)
Portugal Coimbra 26 April 1995, 4.00 365

In Table I.1 it is also indicated when no exceedance of (one or more) threshold values has been observed at the station. This information has not been submitted by the Member States and is inferred from the available data. In cases where the information was insufficient for an unambiguous answer a "?" is printed.
