Abstract

Within the framework of the BeNeLux cooperationx, it was decided to use a same puff-model for interpretation of data from stationary air quality networks as well as for the data from dynamic remote sensing measurements. The model calculates the effects of local and mesoscale S02-transports on the air quality in the BeNeLux countries. Because same measuring techniques and a same interpretation scheme are now used within the BeNeLux, the analysis of individual country contribution to the general S02-patterns may be done in a uniform way.
