Extreme Surface Ozone Concentrations in the Kirov Region of the Russian Federation during Summer Heat Waves of 2010 and 2016

The goal of this study was to compare peak values of surface ozone content recorded at the Vyatskiye Polyany monitoring station during summer heat waves in 2010 and 2016, when wavy and abnormally high air temperatures were seen for an extended period of time. The results of the data analysis from the continuous monitoring system are given. The maximal short-term (peak) recorded values were evaluated at 20-minute, 1-hour, and 8-hour average times. The amplitudes and durations of peak ozone concentrations in 2016 greatly exceeded those seen in 2010 under similar temperature conditions. An rise in the quantity of ozone precursors in the region’s atmosphere could be one of the possible causes of this variation.
