The work carried out in the section Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics focuses on the physical and chemical processes that control the level and trend of air quality development and atmospheric deposition. The section undertakes national air quality monitoring tasks, and it is active in the area of research, consultancy, monitoring and teaching. The research focuses on the impact of air quality on human health, nature, aquatic environment and interaction with climate.
National emission inventories. The section Emission Modelling and Environmental Geography is responsible for the preparation of the official national emission inventories. It also develops emission projections that are used to evaluate the possible effects of local, national and international policies. Research is undertaken to improve the quality of these inventories and to develop strategies and methods for alleviating the effects of emissions on society.
