Emission datasets for model assessment of HMs and POPs long-range transport within the EMEP region were prepared by Centre of Emission Inventories and Projections (CEIP) on the basis of officially submitted emission data for 2016.

The estimates of wind re-suspension of particle-bound heavy metals (Pb, Cd) and gaseous re-emission of Hg are based on the model parameterization [Travnikov and Ilyin, 2005; Gusev et al., 2006; Gusev et al., 2007] and should be considered as tentative.

PCB-153 emissions
Spatial distribution of PCB-153 emissions in 2016, g/km2/y

Spatial distribution of PCB-153 emissions was constructed on the basis
of gridded PCB emissions officially provided by the EMEP countries.
For other EMEP countries, which did not report gridded emission data,
gridded population density was used for allocation of emissions.
