BAFU Ozone PM Trends

Scope of project
- The 3% decrease in solar surface radiation (SSR) between 1990 and 2010 led to a relatively small increase on mean surface ozone (about 1.5%) mainly by affecting the photolysis rates.
- The results obtained in this study suggested that traffic-NOx emissions in Eurepean emission inventories might be too low.
