The Meteorological Synthesizing Center-East (MSC-E) has been conducting a number of country-specific case studies for over 10 years with the support of the Task Force on Measurements and Modeling (TFMM). Objective of the study is to provide the counties with detailed information on pollution levels in addition to the regular information generated within EMEP. The countries receive detailed data on pollution levels with fine spatial resolution, source apportionment of pollution for provinces and cities, contribution of emission sectors and large point sources etc. In 2020, within the framework of the Case Study, a project to assessment the pollution of Germany was completed. The results of this work are presented in the Joint Report of MSC-E and German Environment Agency.
In the framework of cooperation with the Helsinki Commission, MSC-E performs regular evaluation of airborne pollution load of HMs and POPs to the Baltic Sea. This work is carried out in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding between the Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission (HELCOM) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UN ECE) and is based on the long-term EMEP/HELCOM contract.
In 2020 activity was focused on the evaluation of Cadmium, Lead, Mercury, PCDD/Fs, PCB-153, and B(a)P pollution of the Baltic Sea. Results of the assessment were summarized in the Joint report of the EMEP Centres for HELCOM [Gauss et al., 2020] and presented in the indicator fact sheets.
