Ground-level ozone in a changing world
Ground-level ozone in a changing world: current, recent change and future scenarios in Europe.
Ground-level ozone is an air pollutant that adversely affects health, the environment and the Earth's climate. Human emissions of ozone-forming substances increased during the 20th century, which has contributed to increased levels of ground-level ozone. Thanks to international agreements, national and regional efforts, emissions have decreased since the 1980s in North America and Europe. This has had an impact on the exposure to ground-level ozone. I will show case studies of research on the current situation, recent change and what we can expect in the future. The focus is mainly on Europe, but elements from other parts of the world are also included. The lecture, which is a teacher test for the person who applied for admission as an associate professor, should be able to be followed by students and others with knowledge at the undergraduate level within the subject, but may also be of interest to a wider audience.
The lecture lasts 45 minutes with subsequent question time and discussion and will be given in Swedish
