A Two Years Study of Oxidants (Pan and Ozone) in a Forested Area

  • P. Perros
  • A. Proyou
  • G. Toupance


Measurements of PAN and ozone in the ambient air were made for two years at Donon in a forested area. Background levels and monthly mean values are discussed. Relation between wind directions and concentrations are also considered. The study of a photochemical episode shows long range transports and local effects.
