General information and objectives

Scientific aims:
• To provide emission data for use in the EUROTRAC models from actual meteorological and socio-economic data from existing databases.
• To improve and extend existing data bases.
• To prepare scenarios for future emissions.

Estimates of pollutant emissions by the European countries
GENEMIS has taken over the estimation of emissions. Working from estimates given by governments and socio-economic data, they are preparing a data base of information which can be used in the models throughout Europe. Much of their work relies on information provided by the European Commission and the UN-ECE (EMEP).

Ozone transfer from the stratosphere
Some ozone in the troposphere (below ca 15 km) is brought down from the stratosphere during the passage of vigorous fronts and violent storms. It is necessary to include such contributions in the models, and work is being done on this in both EUMAC and GLOMAC.
