Modelling to support possible future revisions of protocol and strategies on transboundary air pollution - AQ01508

.The present challenge is to employ a state-of-the-art global chemistry-transport model STOCHEM to examine future air quality in the wider context of global atmospheric composition change. The aim of the project is to follow up and to extend previous work on the coupling between air pollution problems on the regional- and global-scales by considering a wider range of emission scenarios and a wider range of environmental impacts. The intention is to forewarn policy-makers about the growing understanding of intercontinental and interhemispheric long-range transport so that they have the opportunity to consider its wider ramifications for regional and global air quality policy development.
