Abstract

A field laboratory inter-comparison of diffusive samplers for measuring ozone (O3) in ambient air was carried out. The objective of this study was the evaluation, according to the EN protocol pf validation of diffusive samplers, to the extend of differences between O3 measurements performed by diffusive samplers and the reference method under extreme conditions of influencing factors.
Ten leading European laboratories were invited to participate. The selected participants were responsible for the preparation and analysis of the samplers. The whole range of diffusive samplers commercially available on the market was included in the study.
