In the project the causes for ozone formation in the Alpine-Mediterranean geographical area are studied. Therefore the levels of ozone and its precursors are measured at the monitoring station Krvavec, which was chosen due its representative location. During several measurement campaigns chemical compounds and parameters which are important in the photo-chemical production of ozone, like nitrogen compounds (NO, NO2), HNO3, NO3-, photolysis frequency of NO2 (jNO2), as well as SO2 and SO42- will be measured as well. A special concern is stressed to the determination of NMVOCs, their influence on the ozone production and to the transport of the polluted air masses. The adsorption method on Tenax, Carbosieve and Carbotrap is used for sampling of the biogenic and anthropogenic NMVOC (C2 - C10). The aim of the proposed project is to evaluate different contributions to the regional burden of ozone in Slovenia and in the S-E part of the Central Europe.
