Abstract

Studying Air Pollution Problems in Europe Using the Danish Eulerian Model and TreGro A contribution to subproject GLOREAM A. Bastrup-Birk, J Brandt and Z Zlatev National Environmental Research Institute, Department of Atmospheric Environment, PP, P.O. High ozone concentrations in the troposphere have a damaging impact on human health and on vegetation. The long-range transport model, the Danish Eulerian Model (DEM), has been used to study air pollution problems in Europe and their effects on human health and vegetation. A model system is under development to be used both in research and in policy making for evaluation of the impacts of air pollution on vegetation. Its major components are the Eulerian long-range transport model, DEM (Zlatev 1995; Zlatev et al, 1993) and the dynamic effect model, TreGro (Weinstein et al, 1991) An example of the DEM model results for summer mean ozone concentrations in 1995 is giv
