SOx Emissions-Ireland, Gg year
PM2.5 x 10
r = -0.77
Reduced Emissions, Reduced Air Pollution:
Annual Averages for sulphate aerosol mass, all sector, Mace Head.
Annual Averages, all sector, Mace Head & Valentia Observatory:
SO2 and SO4.
Aerosol Mass Spectrometry an excellent method for realtime in-
situ source apportionment.
LIDAR useful for identifying upper air pollution transport.
Combined LIDAR and AMS most effect for evaluating pollution
Multiple sources of transboundary air pollution (ash, biomass
buring, radioation, etc.)
Need integrated and multi-purpose modelling capacity in Ireland
Long term observations demonstrate a reduction in air pollution
in line with a reduction on emissions.
Effective emissions control.
