Updated modelling results on HM and POP pollution levels within the EMEP region for 2018, based on emissions data for 2018 as reported to the EMEP in 2020, are available here. Particularly, spatial distributions of annual mean air concentrations and total annual deposition fluxes of Pb, Cd, Hg, PCDD/Fs, B(a)P, B(b)F, B(k)F, IP, PCB-153 and HCB for 2018 are presented. Modelling of HM and POP long-range transport and deposition was performed using the latest version of GLEMOS model.
