Study of Air Pollutant Transport in Northern and Western Turkey
While most regulation and research of air pollution episodes are focused on Europe, transport of air pollutants from Europe to Northern and Western Turkey hasn’t been studied sufficiently, although unusually high air pollution episodes occur in these regions. As an example during 05-12 of January, 2002, it has been identified from observational data that particulate matter levels were almost 4-5 times (364 μg/m3) higher than the World Health organization standards for Europe (70 μg/m3). For the same period, other pollutants were significantly higher than the standards as well.
