History NET60 ozone

The maps are based on the RIO-corine interpolation technique. The calculated concentrations are representative of areas with a surface area of 4x4 km2. The concentrations may locally be higher or lower. The modelled concentrations are subject to a certain degree of uncertainty. The uncertainty gains with the distance to the measuring station.

The European target value for the protection of human health is based on the daily maximum 8-hour mean ozone concentration. Averaged over 3 years, this daily maximum 8-hour mean should not exceed 120 µg/m³ more than 25 times a year. This European target value is a medium-term objective (MTO) and applies since 2010 (average 2010-2012). The long-term objective (LTO) is not a single day with maximum 8-hour means above 120 µg/m³. This indicator is expressed as the NET60 indicator.
