Estimate of health impacts of acidifying air pollutants and tropospheric ozone in Europe.
Acid Reign'95 ? International Conference on Acidic Deposition : Science & Policy. Göteborg SWE, 1995/06/26.
Based on combined information available from air quality monitoring data and long-range transport models, European population exposure to SO2, NO2 and O3 has been estimated.
This information has been combined with the results of epidemiological studies assessing strength of association between the exposure and health effects to estimate an impact of the pollution on health in Europe.
The analysis indicates that a considerable number of health problems, ranging from mild irritation of the respiratory system to increased mortality, can be attributed to short-term peaks of pollution observed in Europe.
Chronic impacts of prolonged elevated SO2 levels on lung function are estimated to occur in close to 10 million people in Europe.
