Abstract

Two different pollution indexes have been developed and implemented at the urban area of Naples (Italy). Data collected during 2003 from nine monitoring stations are analysed. The first index aims at measuring the status of air pollution with respect to its effect on human health. Breakpoint concentrations have been defined assuming limit values established by European Community and international associations like World Health Organisation. The second index aims at showing clearly the occurrence of exceedences of limit values established by EC directives.
