Abstract

The highest ozone concentrations in Europe are often found in Eastern Austria. In order to develop effective local abatement strategies it is of vital importance to distinguish between contributions due to local production and long-range transport, as was examined by Stohl and Kromp-Kolb [1]. This paper focuses on the role of local production in the plume of Vienna and under which meteorological conditions such a plume can form. 1 Introduction Many authors have investigated the urban influence on ground-level ozone. Most of these studies focused on so-called ozone episodes, when due to favorable meteorological conditions ozone formation in the urban plume is very strong (e.g. Varey et al. [2]). Comparatively few studies investigated the urban influence on long-term concentrations (e.g. Angle and Sandhu [3]). Stohl and Kromp-Kolb
