Abstract

In order to achieve a cost-effective reduction of acidification, eutrophication and ozone formation in Europe, possible abatement strategies are discussed and optimised with respect to cost effectiveness using the RAINS and EMEP models, with a spatial resolution of 150 km x 150 km. For a detailed evaluation of the impact of the proposed abatement strategies on a smaller region, in casu the Flanders region, more detailed computations have been carried out, using regional scale air pollution models with spatial resolutions varying from 5 km to 60 km. The results were used for an integrated assessment of acidification, eutrophication and ozone formation in Flanders for the period 1999-2010. The a
