Abstract

A critical element in the description of atmospheric chemistry is an accurate spa- tial and temporal inventory of the different compounds. Some of them are passive (5O2) and others are very reactive (NOx, VOC's). The anthropogenic emissions are usually accounted following the CORINAIR and EPA methodologies. In this paper, we present an accurate point, line and area emission distribution over the Madrid mesoscale urban area which includes a geometrical surface of 80 x 100 km with 2000 m resolution. A special part of the inventory is that which is pro- duced by the traffic. We have considered differen
