Abstract

This report gives a general overview of air pollution monitoring at the EMEP station of the JRC Ispra for the year 1992. SO(2), NO(2), O(3) and CO have been monitored routinely in air, SO(4), NO(3), NH(4), Cl, SPM, acidity and heavy metals in atmospheric particulate material, and SO(4), NO(3), NH(4), Cl, Na, K, Ca, Mg, pH, electrical conductivity and acidity in atmospheric precipitation. Data for the meteorological parameters, wind direction, wind speed, temperature, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, precipitation and solar irradiation have been collected continuously. All data have been transmitted to the Chemical Co-ordinating Centre at the Norwegian Institute for Air Research, where they are used together with the data from all the participating countries of the EMEP programme to provide the background information necessary for the modelling of pollutant fluxes in Europe.
