Global Modelling of Transboundary Air Pollution - AQ01509

SPU 32

Global Modelling of Transboundary Air Pollution

The aim of this project is to enroll state of the art global chemistry transport models to examine future European air quality within the wider context of global atmospheric composition change. The model outputs will be used to advise policy-makers through increased understanding of hemispheric transport, so that they have the opportunity to consider its wider ramifications for both regional and global air quality policy development. Including guiding policy through future revisions of Protocols within the UNECE Convention on Long –Range Transboundary Air Pollution and European Directives.
