Abstract

Elemental Carbon (EC) has been in focus for a long time due to its importance for climate effects and human health (WHO / IPCC). The pollutant is released by incomplete combustion of carbon fuels, making road traffic, off-road machinery, and wood stove burning the largest sources of EC emissions. In this work, we investigate the distribution of EC over Denmark using a combination of three models with increasing resolution with a final resolution calculating EC concentrations at the street level. Results have been validated against measurements from four locations in and near Copenhagen.
