Abstract: Building materials represent the largest surfaces indoors and are the major contributors of volative organic compounds (VOCs) in the indoor environment. This study which is conducted in the frame of BUMA project (Prioritization of Building Materials Emissions), aims at assessing the human exposure to air hazards emitted by building materials. In this study, indoor and outdoor VOCs and ozone measurements from field campaigns in two Mediterranean cities (Nicosia and Athens in winter period) are presented and discussed. The field campaigns concern weekly measurements. The campaigns were conducted in four buildings in each city (1 public building, 1 school and 2 houses) and concern weekly measurements. Passive samplers were used for collecting VOCs and ozone.
