  • CCC/NILU: EMEP observations
  • EEA/ETC: AQ e-reporting data

Main motivation:

  • Model intercomparison / performances for BaP, also in relation with modelling of correlated species: PM, EC, levo
  • Reference BaP levels for exposure assessment in relation with EU target levels
  • Link BaP with PAHs in general in relation with Gothenburg Protocol Review
  • Sensitivity to modelled processes

Annual simulation encompassing IMP field campaing in the winter of 2017/2018 Referred to as Experiment “E” of Eurodelta-Carb PM modelling phase, with adaptation in the model technical specifications below
