Abstract

Increasing attention is being paid to the transport and diffusion of airborne pollutants. The reasons are the growing emission of pollutants, their impact on ecosystems over hundreds of kilometers, the increased awareness by the public of the resulting health impact, and the corresponding regulatory guidelines issued by governmental authorities. In most cases, the impact of pollutants is too small to be monitored in a routine manner, and must rather be assessed by atmospheric diffusion calculations.
