  • Avoiding harmful ozone pollution this summer

    High summer temperatures combined with air pollution can cause ground-level ozone to form, which has serious effects on health, especially for older people or children, or those with asthma and other breathing problems. The European Environment Agency (EEA) presents some useful information on protecting your health from ground-level ozone this summer. To date, the highest concentrations ...

  • More effort needed to reduce summer ozone

    Ground level ozone causes health problems, decreases crop yields and damages the environment. Ozone levels exceeding certain targets in Europe were less frequent in summer 2011 than in any year since monitoring started in 1997. However, the long-term objective was exceeded in all EU Member States and it is likely many of them will not meet the target value, applicable as of 2010. "In ...

  • Hot summer weather exacerbating ozone pollution

    Unusually high temperatures this summer may be contributing to poor air quality in many European cities. Thresholds to protect health from ground-level ozone have been exceeded across Europe in recent weeks, according to preliminary data reported to the European Environment Agency (EEA). Ozone pollution has serious effects on health, especially for older people and children, or those with ...

  • Hourly Ground-Level Ozone Forecasts Now Coast to Coast

    WASHINGTON, DC, October 3, 2007 (ENS) - Ground-level ozone forecasts, for years a key predictor of air quality in major U.S. cities, are now posted and mapped online on an hourly basis throughout the lower 48 United States. Ground-level ozone is a main ingredient of urban smog, that brown cloud hanging over the skylines of urban areas. 'Poor air quality is a silent ...

  • New England Had More Unhealthy Air Quality Days during Summer Ozone Season

    EPA today confirmed that New Englanders experienced a slight increase in the number of unhealthy air quality days this year, compared to 2014 and 2013. Based on preliminary data collected between April and September 2015, there were 24 days when ozone monitors in New England recorded concentrations above levels considered healthy. By contrast, in 2014 there were a total of 9 unhealthy ozone days, ...

  • Pre Book on Ozone Generation Technologies Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2012 - 2018

    The growing need to treat wastewater in order to make it usable for drinking and other purposes is propelling the growth of the ozone generation technologies market. Ozone technologies disinfect air/gas and wastewater (industrial and municipal), which can be further used for various purposes.  The global market is expected to witness steady growth over the next six years. Some of the major ...


  • Sharing environmental information across Europe to improve policies

    Public authorities across Europe collect a vast range of environmental data but different practices of classification and reporting make it difficult to access them and use them for cross-border analyses. The shared environmental information system (SEIS) aims to fulfill this gap by interconnecting existing databases, promoting the use of standards and making data accessible to all. The European ...

  • New England experienced fewer unhealthy air quality days during past summer

    EPA today confirmed that New Englanders experienced a decrease in the number of unhealthy air quality days this year, compared to 2010. The decrease in number of days with unhealthy air quality is related to weather conditions and because emissions of the chemicals that create ozone continue to decline. Based on preliminary data collected between April and September 2011, there were 16 days when ...

  • Hot New England summer meant more smog days, but long-term trend is toward cleaner air (CT, ME, MA, NH, RI, VT)

    As the 2010 summer ozone season comes to an end, EPA today confirmed that New Englanders experienced an increase in the number of poor air quality days this year, compared to 2009. Based on preliminary data collected between April and September, there were 28 days when ozone monitors in New England recorded concentrations above the standard. By contrast, in 2009 there were 11 days over the ...

  • New Tools Make Understanding Air Quality Easier Than Ever

    Ever used your computer to 'fly' through the mountains, or zoom in on a satellite picture of your house? Now you can use the same technology to learn more about emissions and air quality across the country and where you live. EPA has developed two tools that let computer users 'see' air quality information on a virtual globe. Both tools are available to the public starting today. 'Google has ...

  • Regional air pollution improvements have global health benefits

    Reductions in emissions of fine particle air pollution can prevent premature deaths, not just locally, but also in countries thousands of kilometres away, new research illustrates. The transcontinental study examines the effects of reducing air pollution emitted from Europe, North America, South and East Asia by 20% and shows that, for example, reductions in the EU would mean 3700 fewer premature ...
