Abstract

Policy Implications of Emissions Resulting in Formation, Transport and Deposition of Aerosols Invited contribution J Slanina, HM ten Brink and AY Khlystov Netherlands Energy Research Foundation, ECN, P.O. Box 1, 1755 ZG Petten, The Netherlands. The problem Emissions and biosphere/atmosphere exchange of pollutants are directly related to a number of very important policy questions which cover all aspects of atmospheric chemistry: But measures to mitigate acidification, eutrophication or oxidant formation also have a direct relation to the radiative balance of the earth and hence to the "greenhouse effect". Not only will changes in, for example, the deposition load of ammonia or nitric acid influence N2O emissions and exert a large influence on the carbon cycle by way of fertilisation processes, but measures to reduce any aspect of air pollution problems will directly affect the radiative balance of the earth,
