Selected Station Overview

List of selected stations for trend analysis. Here one can display national and regional (benchmark) datasets to be used for trend analysis.

After the TFMM workshop in Krakow, further screening of the datasets was done and a final datasets and statistical results can be downloaded: These data are used in the Joint Report of the EMEP TFMM, CCC, MSC-E, MSC-W, Air pollution trends in the EMEP region between 1990 and 2012,EMEP/CCC-Report 1/2016

Sulfur, nitrogen and PM


  • README Short explanation of the data

After review by the Parties, an extended and improved list of sites have been included in the trend analysis. EMEP sites with data completeness of 75% throughout the year (or season) and 75% of years covered for the respektive time periods (1990-2012 / 1990-2001 / 2002-2012) have been included. The dataset and results are presented in the excel files below:

Sulphur, nitrogen, PM10 and PM2.5


Plots of timeseries and the Sen slope if sinificant trend (p=0.05) (pdf files)

Statistical output of the Mann Kendall and Sen slope calculations (text files)

Statistical output of daily means and 8h daily max in ascii files (zipped)ascii
Plotted time series and trends for daily means (zipped)Means, pdfs
Plotted time series and trends for 8h daily max (zipped)Max, pdfs

The EMEP stations used in the review paper by Tørseth et al 2012 can be downloaded in the below excel files. All the site used that study is listed in appendix A

The datasets are extended to 2012 compared to 2009 in the mentioned paper:

  • EMEP benchmark dataset for S,N and PM, annual means in air and precipitation 1980-2012. Note that for sulphur, Tørseth et al only includes sites with co-current measurements in air and precipitation. More sites could be addeded for the trend assessement main components
  • EMEP benchmark dataset for HM and POPs, annual means in air and precipitation heavy metals and POPs
  • EMEP benchmark dataset for ozone. In Tørseth et al,, a criteria of 75% data coverage was used to select the stations. In the file the sites and number of years with 75% yearly coverage is listed. Further selections may be necessary depending on which years and months are missing. Ozone

Comments to the selection of sites and data?

The Melpitz Site (DE0049) Lat. 51.32.0 N 12.56.0 E 86 masl. should be added for PM10 and PM2.5 (compare Spindler et al. 2013 in TFMM trend assesment publications).

Subset of Airbase stations (including urban suburban and rural background stations as well as traffic and industrial sites) passing completeness and quality criteria and selected for the analysis of the European Topic Centre on Air Quality and Climate Mitigation in its report 2015/4 in support of the European Environment Agency: http://acm.eionet.europa.eu/reports/ETCACM_TP_2015_4_AQtrends
