Map 2: Number of exceedances of the threshold value for the information of the public (1h > 180 µg/m3) observed at urban stations and stations of unspecified type. Summer 1996 (April-July).
Map 3: Number of exceedances of the threshold value for the information of the public (1h > 180 µg/m3) observed at background stations. Summer 1996 data (April-July), interpolated using inverse distance weighting and a cut-off distance of 100 km.
Map 4: Example of a smog episode: stations which reported an hourly ozone concentration in excess of 180 µg/m3, 5-8 June 1996 (all station types).
