Short summary
The main atmospheric mechanisms linked with spring surface ozone episodes over the western Mediterranean are examined. It comes out that high surface midday ozone values are usually linked with regional ozone episodes, which are strongly influenced by some specific meteorological conditions. The better understanding of the ozone variability in the lower troposphere and the boundary layer over the examined regions will help in the formulation of more effective policies in environment and climate.
