Abstract
Fotokemijsko zagađenje nastaje kao posljedica nagomilavanja štetnih tvari u troposferi iznad urbanih centara gdje su emisije prekursora dostatne da sinteza prevagne nad razgradnjom polutanata. Praćenje koncentracije ozona, kao glavnog sastojka fotokemijskog smoga, bitno je u zaštiti ljudskog zdravlja. Cilj ovog rada je utvrditi stupanj zagađenosti svakog od četiri urbana centra Republike Hrvatske; Osijek, Rijeka, Zagreb, Dubrovnik. Predmet obrade su validirani podaci Ministarstva zaštite okoliša i prirode. Zaključeno je da je Dubrovnik najzagađeniji, u kategoriju osrednje zagađenih pripadaju Rijeka i Osijek, dok je najslabije zagađen grad Zagreb.

Parallel abstract (English)
Photochemical pollution occurs as a result of accumulation of pollutants in the troposphere above urban centers where emissions of precursors seems to be sufficient for synthesis to outweigh decomposition of hazardous compounds. Monitoring concentrations of ozone, the main ingredient in photochemical smog, is important for protection of human health. The aim of this study was to determine degree of atmosphere contamination over four urban centers in the Republic of Croatia; Osijek, Rijeka, Zagreb, Dubrovnik. The subject of processing are validated data from the Ministry of Environmental and Nature Protection. The results show that Dubrovnik is the most polluted, in category of moderately polluted are Rijeka and Osijek, while the least polluted is city of Zagreb.
