A. S. 1995 Atmospheric Environment, 29, 283-3O 1. (1993) demonstrated how the daily evolution of the sea breeze could account for spatial variations in photochemical pollution. Under sea breeze conditions it was shown that the main Athens urban area exhibited high nitrogen oxide concentrations related to automobile emission whereas the suburbs to the northeast of the urban area experienced high ozone concentrations, a result of ozone precursors being transported to this area by the sea breeze. As noted by Lyons et al.

However, by applying the synoptic typing methodology to the Birmingham area in the UK, McGregor and Bamzelis (1995) identified and described six major air mass types in terms of their climatological, meteorological and pollution characteristics. For extreme pollution events a subpolar North Sea mixed maritime continental anticyclonic type (Type 5) with warm, subhumid and calm conditions stood out as the most important for NO 2, 0 3, NO, CO and PMm0. A related summer binary northern continental anticyclonic southern cyclonic type (Type 4) characterized by moderate warmth and moisture levels and low cloud cover, as well as high radiation inputs and calm to weak northerly and easterly flow, was also found to be of importance for 0 3 and SO 2.
