Abstract

Balance of the Air Pollutant Mass Fluxes of a City: First Results of Vertical Soundings within the TFS-EVA Project in Augsburg 1998 A contribution to subproject GENEMIS G Baumbach, K. Glaser and U. Vogt Pfaffenwaldring 23, D -7 05 69 Stuttgart, Germany Introduction Emission inventories are generally based on emission calculations for which many assumptions have to be made. Since these assumptions introduce uncertainties concerning the correct emission rates, an independent method for measuring emission rates for a whole city area will be presented here. First results from the application of the method to experimental data are compared to results from calculated emission rates from the same area of investigation. The principle of the method is based on making a cross section both on the windward side and the leeward side of the area to be investigated (in case of the TFS-EVA experiment, the city of Augsbur
