  • Ozone pollution is declining — but not everywhere

    Ground-level ozone is among the most harmful air pollutants in Europe today. Elevated ozone levels cause health problems, premature deaths, reduced agricultural crop yields, damage to plants in semi-natural ecosystems and corrosion of physical infrastructure and cultural heritage. Troublingly, efforts to combat European ozone levels are achieving only limited success. Although Europe has ...

  • Action needed on ground-level ozone

    Air pollution caused by ground-level ozone will become a serious threat to human health and food security within the next century unless action is taken on a global scale, according to a recent report. Ozone is a significant air pollutant and important greenhouse gas, third only to carbon dioxide and methane in terms of impact on the climate. It is a powerful oxidant that exacerbates conditions ...

  • Why is ground-level ozone not on the decline?

    Europe has significantly cut its emissions of gases that lead to ground-level ozone. Despite this, levels of ozone do not appear to be falling. A recent EEA report questions this and suggests that the effect of the emission cuts on ozone may be masked by variable weather conditions. In many countries of Europe, the time-series of ozone data are yet too short to draw conclusions about long-term ...

  • 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 ...

  • EPA Approves Redesignation of Charlotte Area to Attainment for Ozone

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has announced that it is taking final action to approve the state of North Carolina’s request to redesignate the Charlotte area to attainment of the 1997 8-hour ozone standard. This action is based on air quality monitoring data for the three-year period of 2008, 2009, and 2010 that meets the standard. The area continues to attain this standard. On ...

  • 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 ...
