MSC-E co-operates with Parties to the Convention in the framework of heavy metal pollution assessment on a country scale. This year a case study for Poland has been completed. The analysis of heavy metal pollution of the country includes model assessment of Cd air concentration and deposition levels with fine spatial resolution, evaluation of national anthropogenic emissions, source apportionment of Cd deposition to various provinces of the country including contribution of different emission sectors. A special attention is paid to assessment of Cd pollution of cities.
MSC-E participated in country-specific case study of B(a)P pollution in the EMEP countries in close cooperation with national experts. Evaluation of B(a)P pollution levels in Spain is continued. Besides, similar work is initiated for France. Current stage of the study is mainly focused on the analysis of discrepancies between B(a)P modelling results and observed pollution levels taking place for Spain and France as well as for some other EMEP countries. This activity includes construction of experimental emission scenarios. Besides, a number of model simulations were carried out in order to evaluate sensitivity of the model predictions to possible uncertainties in the officially reported emission data. Particular attention is also paid to possible uncertainties of the modelling approach for B(a)P.
