Air pollution exposure monitoring and estimation. Part II. Model evaluation and population exposure


The air pollution dispersion model EPISODE has been developed at the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) over the past several years in order to meet the needs of modern air quality management work in urban areas. The model has recently been used as a basis for exposure calculations of NO x and NO 2 in order to assess the effects of different traffic diversion measures on health and well being for the residents in the Vålerenga-Ekeberg-Gamlebyen area in Oslo. Here we describe some results from the most recent evaluations of the model for NO x and NO 2 at station Nordahl Brunsgate in Oslo for the period 1 October 1996-19 November 1996. In addition examples of population exposure calculations for Oslo performed during the winter period of 1995-96, are also presented.
