Short summary
In this paper, we analyse surface levels of benzene, toluene, non-methane hydrocarbons (NMHCs), CO, O3, SO2, NO, NO2 and meteorology measured on a mobile laboratory along the Trans-Siberian Railway from Moscow to Vladivostok in summer 2008. The main sources of benzene and toluene along the railway are revealed. The total contribution of benzene and toluene to photochemical ozone production along the Trans-Siberian Railway is determined and compared to the most abundant organic VOC – isoprene.
