PM-Measurement Campaign HOVERT: Transport Analysis of Aerosol Components by use of the CTM REM–CALGRID
A one year PM10 and its major components measurement campaign in, and around, Berlin has been carried out from September 2001 to September 2002. The most important challenge was to improve the knowledge about the contribution of anthropogenic urban sources and of long term transports of anthropogenic and natural constituents of air to local concentrations in order to give advice to authorities to elaborate reduction strategies for PM10 concentrations. The validation of the chemical transport model (CTM) REM_Calgrid (Stern et al, 2003) by means of the sampled data was propaedeutic to any further use of it in determining possible sources of air pollution.
