MERLIN
(Multi-Pollutant, Multi-Effect Assessment of European Air Pollution Control Strategies - an Integrated Approach)

Objective:  Development of a computer-based model system to determine the bundle of air pollution control measures, that is capable of achieving compliance with air quality limit and target values (for emission, concentrations and deposition) for specific pollutants at least-costs.

LHTEE Contribution:  Atmospheric dispersion modeling at urban scale.

Funded by:  CEC, Environment and Sustainable Development Programme (2000 - 2002)
