Abstract

This report gives a general overview of air pollution monitoring at the EMEP station of the JRC Ispra for the year 1998.

SO2, NO2, O3, and CO have been monitored routinely, VOC's and Carbonyls periodically in air; SO4, NO3, NH4, CI, SPM, acidity and heavy metals in atmospheric particulate material and SO4, NO3, NH4, CI, Na, K, Ca, g, 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 continuously collected. A short validation is given to the pollution situation in between 1997 and 1998. All data, forming a part of the required EMEP routine programme, have been transmitted to the EMEP data evaluation laboratory of the Chemical coordinating centre at the Norwegian institute for Air Research (NILU), 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 modeling of pollutant fluxes in Europe, elaborate d by the Norwegian Meteorological Institute in Oslo and the Institute for Applied Geophysics in Moscow.523 3
