4 In the annual reporting of 1999 data on ozone concentrations and exceedances were received by the European Commission from all Member States. The 15 EU Member States provided information on ozone concentrations measured at monitoring stations. The threshold value set for the protection of human health (55 ppb, 8h average) was exceeded substantially in all reporting countries. The threshold was exceeded on average on 25 days at each reporting station and during an exceedance the average concentration was about 63 ppb. The threshold value of 200 µg/m 3 (hourly average) was exceeded largely and widely (in total 16 countries, 11 EU Member States) on a limited number of days.

14 Emission from motorway traffic in Kiev (raster model).

15 Geostrophic wind direction and surface wind at 14:00h. ( 19 August 2000)

16 Surface classification from image data (Kyiv) Terra ASTER Image Km 0 Classes - water - wood - sparse growth of trees, shrubbery - grass - idustrial urban surface - marginal land -send light surface - water protection zone The percent coverage of land-use categories are specified at each horizontal grid location for use in the dry deposition calculations. Land-use categories are obtained from a geographic information system for each grid cell. Gridded surface albedo indices based on land-use categories are also required for each horizontal grid location. These indices, which cross-reference the albedo values used in the photolysis rate preprocessor, are used to locate the proper photochemical reaction rates for the internal calculation of photolysis rates.

17 Wind field simulation with the surface model. Terrain Gridded terrain heights above mean sea level are specified for the coarse grid domain. The terrain file also includes the coordinates of coarse grid cell centers in latitude/longitude coordinates. Wind Components Horizontal wind components (u and v) are specified hourly for each grid cell center. Winds are used to evaluate the horizontal advection terms in the advection/diffusion equation, calculate vertical velocities, calculate surface layer parameters for deposition, determine plume rise characteristics, and diagnose diffusion coefficients.

18 Concentrations of formaldehyde, NO2 and ozone for calculated episode in Kyiv, ppm.

21 Conclusions n Ozone distribution (for 19 Aug 2000, 14h) demonstrates, that an area of Botanic Garden is not the most polluted(about 60 ppb) and other parts of Kiev (north- east) can be characterized by more enhanced ozone concentrations (up to 104 ppb). n The use of GIS optimizes the process of data preparation and analysis. n At present, measurements of tropospheric ozone in Kyiv are inadequate, relying on a single measurement station. As such, local authorities lack adequate resources to detect, much less predict, dangerous levels of ozone throughout the metropolitan area. n Results of surface ozone modelling have shown the effectiveness of UAM-V model in the analysis of ozone pollution situation for Kiev area and developments of guidelines of the administrative solutions for reduction of enhanced ozone concentrations. n The modelling allows to interpolate the data of monitoring points, to evaluate the probability of dangerous ozone levels and to determine trends in ozone variations
