A study of the air pollution in the Greek coastal town Volos was performed using the available data of the last ten years. Quantile analysis showed that ozone concentrations during weekends were higher by 5–10% in comparison to those on weekdays, while the inverse was observed for the other pollutants, indicating the occurrence of the so called |weekend effect|. Analysis of the maximum values of the high ozone period showed even higher differences. The pollutants NO, NO2, CO, and SO2 were lower during weekends compared to weekdays, by about 30%, 20%, 25% and 10% respectively.
