Of the 11 comparisons 9 sites have a positive bias, the median bias and spread are 34% and 43% respectively. For the reference compared with reference methods, the median bias and spread are 6% and 4%. For the Saltzmann method, the field comparison at DE03 revealed that this method is not suitable at concentration levels below 1 μg N/m3 (Aas & Semb, 2001), the uncertainty at high concentration levels is also substantial. The results from the chemiluminisence monitors are variable. In general the monitors tend to overestimate the concentration level, of the 14 comparisons 12 sites have a positive bias, the median bias and spread are 26 and 40%, respectively.

For trends (1980–2000), for both gaseous and liquid phase concentrations, the changes over the 20-year period were calculated from linear trend analysis as the average over the region.
