Emission database

The emission database, named the POPBAL database has been prepared in native Access format (80mb) and contains the following information:

HCB (emissions) 70,75,80,85,90,93 Yes (by crop).
DDT (use) 70,75,80,85,90,93 Yes (by crop).
HCHs (use and emission) Annual, 70-96 Yes (by crop).
B(a)P (emissions) 70,75,80,85,90,93 Yes (by population).
Sum of PCB (emissions) 70,75,80,85,90,93 Yes (by population).
Sum of PCDD/F (emissions) 70,75,80,85,90,93 Yes (by population).
17 pCDD/F congeners (emissions) 70,75,80,85,90,93 No

Emission maps with the grid system of 50km x 50 km have been prepared for all studied compounds and the reference years agreed within the project. These maps have been used by the project modelers.

The structure of the emission database has been prepared along major source categories defined within the EU CORINAIR program and the UN ECE EMEP program with some minor modifications. The following information is available in the POPBAL database:

-identification of activities generating the emissions,
-magnitude of the activity,
-process identification,
-fuel identification,
-year of emission and country,
-amount of emission,
-emission factors, and
