Annex 1. Observed exceedances and annual statistics

ANNEX 1. Observed exceedances and annual statistics

Observed exceedances of ozone threshold values and annual statistics in 1997 at individual monitoring stations reporting in the framework of the Council Directive 92/72/EEC on air pollution by ozone.

Information on exceedances and concentrations of ozone and its precursors for the individual stations in EU Member States and several other European countries reporting in the framework of the Ozone Directive over the period 1 January 1997 - 31 December 1997 is available in computer readable form only. In the framework of the Council decision on Exchange of Information (Council Decision 97/101/EC) the Member States will report hourly ozone concentration for (a selection of) the reporting stations. These hourly data will become available from the EEA-ETC/AQ database AIRBASE.

Exceedances of the threshold value of 360 µg/m3 for hourly values has been observed in 1997 at one station only:

country station name & city date, time max conc (µg/m3)
Greece Lykovrissi, Athens 18 June, 13.00 383


From the AIRBASE pages at the web site of the Topic Centre the following tables are available:

Table I.1: Number of days, the number of periods of consecutive days on which exceedances of the threshold values of 180 µg/m3 and 200 µg/m3 for hourly values have been observed and exceedance rate at reporting monitoring stations; period 1 January - 31 December 1997.

Table I.2: Number of days, the number of periods of consecutive days on which exceedances of the threshold values of 110 µg/m3 for 8-hourly values and 65 µg/m3 for daily values have been observed and exceedance rates at reporting monitoring stations; period 1 January - 31 December 1997.

Table I.3. Annual statistics (50, 98 and 99.9 percentile values and maximum values) of hourly and moving 8-hourly ozone concentrations for reporting monitoring stations; all concentrations in µg/m3; period 1 January - 31 December 1997.

Table I.4. Annual statistics (averaged, 50-, 95- and 98- percentile values) of hourly NOx and NO2 concentrations for reporting monitoring stations; all concentrations as NO2 equivalents in µg/m3; period 1 January - 31 December 1997.

Table I.5. Annual statistics (averaged, 50-, 95- and 98- percentile values) of daily VOC concentrations for reporting monitoring stations; all concentrations in µg/m3; period 1 January - 31 December 1997.

Notes to the Tables

Table I.1

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; "-1" indicates missing data.
