Abstract

Calculation and Assessment of Emission Data for Urban Areas A contribution to subproject GENEMIS P. Blank, R. Friedrich, C John, A. Obermeier and B Wickert Institute of Energy Economics and the Rational Use of Energy (IER), University of Stuttgart, Hessbruehlstrasse 49 a, 70565 Stuttgart, Germany Objectives and approach Uncertainties of calculated emission inventories are still largely unknown. Therefore, within the framework of the joint project 'Evaluation of Calculated Emission Data for an Urban Area' absolute and relative emission rates will be determined for the city of Augsburg in three different ways: * by measuring fluxes of air pollutants on the both the windward side and lee sides of the city, * by the release of a trace gas (SFe) and the determination of the ratio between trace gas and pollutant concentrations, and * by measuring pollutant concentrations on the windward side and the lee
