Ambient air measurements related to traffic : evolution of VOCs over three years

Abstract : Influence of traffic emission on air quality in European cities has widely been studied. Nevertheless, measurement campaigns are usually limited. We present here a set of VOC measurements which has been collected during 5 to 6 campaigns each year over three years. Ambient air is sampled outside vehicles, inside the traffic. Evolution of the concentrations both in urban and rural air over the 3 years are discussed, compound by compound, and compared to data from literature. Influence of traffic on concentrations is obvious. The major fînding is that the concentrations of pollutants related to traffic have been decreasing between 2003 and 2005, specially in urban atmospheres, and in a lesser way, in rural areas.
