Daily median exceedance probability curves (shaded areas represent the interval between the 0.05 and 0.95 probability of exceedance, based on sampling 100 two-year simulations) for SO2 gas concentration at Thera (upper), Akrotiri (middle) and Oia (lower) as computed by the AERMOD model. Scenarios of 200 tons SO2/day (left) and 800 tons SO2/day (right) are shown as are the EC and WHO air quality thresholds for dangerous (orange dashed line: 125 μg/m3) and reduced (blue dashed line: 20 μg/m3) air quality, respectively. Note the maximum value of 0.5 on the y axis. As with ash hazard, these plots suggest that Oia is likely to experience lesser impact than the rest of the island
