Air quality in Primorsko-goranska county is assessed according to measurements of daily mean concentrations of the following pollutants: sulphur dioxide, black smoke, particulate matter, metals, dustfall including its components, nitrogen dioxide, ammonia, phenol, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon index, hydrogen sulphide as well as acidity and content of precipitation. Air monitoring site lay out as content of air pollution monitoring across Primorsko-goranska county is defined according to density of pollutant emission sources and public demand fro information on air quality. Industrial and residential density of certain country areas, such as Rijeka inner city, the neighbouhood pf oil refinery Mlaka and around Bakar bay (vicinity of Urinj oil refinery, thermo-electric power plant and harbour) as well as the road traffic intensity, have contributed to the rise of air pollution above the legal limits. In order to protect public health during air pollution periods (these are either consequences of incidents or unfavourable local meteorological circumstances), standard air pollution limits were set as hourly average of particular pollutants. Therefore, continuous air pollution monitoring using automatic methods, becomes the necessary prerogative. It is also essential when investigating pollution regularity daily patterns including calibration of emission sources dispersion model. Continuous, automatic air pollution monitoring enables comparison between measurements provided by simple physical/chemical analytical and sophisticated electronic methods widely used in many parts of the world. In addition, these comparisons will be possible with foreseeing air pollution measurements provided by future global Croatian automatic monitoring networks.
