The suggestion for this ebook arose in 1993, after the unfastened country of Bavaria via its Bayrisches Staatsministerium rur Landesentwicklung und Umweltfragen (Bavarian Ministry of neighborhood improvement and the surroundings) determined to stop either the Bavarian undertaking administration (PBWU) for woodland decline learn and the multidisciplinary box examine at the Wank Mountain within the Alps close to Garmisch. woodland decline during the motion of ozone and different photooxidants was once a major subject of the supported re­ seek within the Alps and should be an issue of latest investigations within the Bavarian woodland. Many attention-grabbing effects have been bought, however the researchers concerned haven't had adequate time to permit trustworthy conclusions to be drawn. It used to be accordingly made up our minds to invite inter­ nationwide specialists for contributions as a way to summarize the easiest to be had proof of a potential hyperlink among ozone and wooded area decline - a subject matter which has been studied within the united states because the overdue Nineteen Fifties and in Europe because the early Nineteen Eighties. the unique notion of Waldsterben as an irreversible large-scale dieback of forests in Germany was once quickly famous to be flawed (Forschungsbeirat 1989). even if, the hot standards used for the authentic German and eu harm inventories (loss or yel­ lowing of needles or leaves, tree morphology) point out that consistent with­ sistently excessive probabilities of broken spruce and pine stay, and there's an expanding percent of broken beech and oak, with a excessive share of biotic affliction (Forschungsbeirat 1989; UN-ECE 1995).

As an example, Fig. 5 shows the annual distribution of daily 03 maxima classified according to the relative sunshine duration (RSD). The comparison is based on 03 records from three neighboring Alpine sites located at ground level and nearly 1000 and 2200 m above ground level. Under cloudy sky conditions similar 03 levels are observed during the year at the mountain stations, however, peak 03 concentrations in the valley are lower by about 12 nl rl. ~ • :s 50 40 C') o 30 20 10 MONTH OF YEAR Fig.

14. The meteorological conditions consist of wind direction, air temperature, and global radiation. The 0 3 concentrations at all three levels exhibit pronounced diurnal cycles with a maximum in the late afternoon and a minimum during the night. The 0 3 maximum occurred slightly after the maximum of global radiation. Occasionally, the 0 3 minimum was broken up by a short-term increase in concentration. This may have been due to the vertical transfer of 0 3 when the short-term reenforcement of turbulence disturbed the nocturnal boundary layer.

Particularly in Europe additional research is needed. European programs, such as EUROTRAC (European Experiment on Transport and Transformation of Environmentally Relevant Trace ,gonstituents in the Troposphere over Europe) were established to meet this need for ozone research. Changes in conceptual models of the temporal and spatial variations in 0 3 , precursor concentrations, and emission rates (especially of biogenic organic compounds) are required for further progress (NAS 1991).
