Long-range Transport of Particulate Matter in Nordic Countries

image of Long-range Transport of Particulate Matter in Nordic Countries

This project evaluates the present level of atmospheric particles in the Nordic countries and determine their origin by characterisation of the particle emissions, the chemical composition and size distribution of atmospheric aerosols through the development and validation of a 3D EMEP Eulerian model.




In the late 90’s there was a growing need for a better understanding of the mass concentrations of particulate matter in regional background air, and its spatial and temporal variation, as more and more evidence emerged on particles influence on health. This demand for particle mass concentrations has strongly increased as well as the need for a better description of the chemistry and other particle properties in order to better understand the observed health effects.
