Abstract

We present results of aircraft measurements which were performed using a 80 x 80 km^ box shaped flight path around the cities of Halle, Leipzig, and Bit- terfeld, in the southern part of eastern Germany. The data sets, which were ob- tained close to emission sources of primary pollutants, are highly variable. The resulting skewed distributions make quantitative interpretation difficult. The in- fluence of this region on regional air chemistry was detectable between 1990 and 1994. This is particularly true for SC>2 which is still emitted in la
