Abstract

The results of an assessment of network in the Member States for monitoring ambient sulphur dioxide and suspended particulates, particularly with respect to EEC Directive 80/779/EEC, is presented. The report includes details on legal provisions, national objectives and strategy, how the design strategy addresses the requirements of the Directive, sampling the analytical methods, station siting criteria costs of monitoring. Reports on networks visited in Belgium, France, the Federal Republic of Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom during the course of the study are also presented. Finally, recommendations are made for concentrating effort on areas "at risk" of exceeding the limit of the Directive, and on harmonizing practice, in particular data interpretation, with respect to the Directive.
