Abstract: Information about a new project is given in this contribution. The project is financed by the Czech Ministry of Environment and deals with the problem of summer photochemical smog formation. Field campaigns and utilisation of existing monitoring network data are supposed for analysing both biogenic emissions and emissions due to human activity. An important part of this project consists in modelling of organic compounds transport and formation of summer photochemical smog episodes. Model results will be compared with monitoring data in order that the model scheme describing the chemical cycle could be improved in biogenic emission could be involved.

Keywords: summer photochemical smog; tropospheric ozone; organic compounds emission; biogenic emission; photochemical air pollution modelling; field campaign.
