Seasonal Variation of Low Molecular Weight Carbonyls at the ISPRA Air Monitoring Station - Correlation with O(3) Measurements
The seasonal variation in ambient air concentrations of low molecular weight carbonyls (C=6) measured in Ispra showed maximum concentrations up to 7Ág/m(3) for formaldehyde, while monthly average values up to 4.3, 3.0, and 3.5Ág/m(3) were recorded for formaldehyde, acetaldehyde and acetone, respectively. Considerable amounts (up to 4.5Ág/m) of methacrolein were found in ambient air during summer and autumn. Preliminary evidence indicated that for formaldehyde during summer sources other than local traffic should be taken into account.
