In this project we are studying the aerosol modelling and source apportionment using CAMx air quality model with the PSAT tool (Particulate Source Apportionment Technology). Contribution from various sources and regions on particulate matter in Switzerland is predicted. In addition, different methods and land use data are compared to provide the best available biogenic VOC emissions inventory for Europe to be used in air quality modelling studies.
