Determination of Traffic Emissions from Pollution Measurements and Dispersion Modelling A contribution to subproject SATURN Ole Hertel\ Ruwim Berkowicz*, Finn Palmgren Eugene Genikhovich^, Alexander Ziv^ and Ekaterina lakovleva^ ^National Environmental Research Institute, Frederiksborgvej 399, DK-4000 Roskilde, Denmark ^Main Geophysical Observatory, Kurbysheva, St. Petersburg, Russia Introduction In most European cities emissions from road traffic has become the most important source of local air pollution.
