Regional Transport of Tropospheric Ozone: A Case Study in the Northwest Coast of Iberian Peninsula
Relevant tropospheric ozone levels are frequently reached in the NW coast of the Iberian Peninsula (Galicia) during spring and summertime under high pressure conditions (Logan, 1998). In this study, the origin and associated phenomena to tropospheric ozone episodes in rural areas at that region are considered. Most of them are produced by regional ozone transport from Southern and Eastern regions of the Iberian Peninsula. In addition, analysis and simulation of a typical episode (12–22 September 2003) are presented.
