“…The collocation of the south-eastern Europe/Balkan Peninsula high-pressure system and the Asian monsoon low-pressure regime to the east causes northerly circulation over the Aegean Sea that sheers to north-westerly over the eastern Mediterranean (Tyrlis et al, 2013;Anagnostopoulou et al, 2014). As a result, the EMME region is affected by near-surface transport of polluted air masses from various distance sources such as the Middle East, eastern and central Europe (Lelieveld et al, 2002;Gerasopoulos et al, 2005;Ladstätter-Weißenmayer et al, 2007;Kalabokas et al, 2008;Kanakidou et al, 2011). Kleanthous et al (2014) reported that long-range transport (LRT) has important impacts on the air quality over the island of Cyprus and it is directly linked to high O 3 levels.…”

“…Genoa and Milan), the megacities of Istanbul and Cairo, a large range of smaller population centres disseminated all over the basin, as well as intense shipping activities render the Mediterranean basin one of the most airpollution-impacted zones on the planet (Karanasiou et al, 2014;de la Paz et al, 2013). Natural sources such as Saharan dust, sea-spray and frequent forest fires exert further considerable stress on regional air quality (Kanakidou et al, 2011). Transport of air pollution from outside the Mediterranean region is one cause for increased concentrations of primary and secondary pollutants (Lelieveld et al, 2002).…”

“…Air pollution influences many megacities and their surroundings worldwide (Srivastava et al, 2008;Kanakidou et al, 2011;Zhang et al, 2012). In China, air pollution in megacities is mainly caused by the drastic economic growth, together with the rapid industrialization and the wide urbanization (e.g., Wang et al, 2014a, b;Li et al, 2015;Lang et al, 2017).…”
