Short summary
Ozone (O3) is an air pollutant known to negatively affect vegetation. Typically, high O3 concentrations reduce growth. This study investigated the effect of O3 uptake on the total amount of carbon assimilated by vegetation for a Scots pine stand in Flanders over the period 1998–2013. Although the critical levels for AOT40 and POD1, two indices currently used to estimate O3 damage, were exceeded every year, no O3 effects on daily and growing season GPP were found.
