Description of Document: (a) Provide observational and modeling data on pollutant concentrations, deposition, emissions and transboundary fluxes on the regional scale and identify their trends in time; (b) Identify the sources of the pollution concentrations and depositions and to assess the effects of changes in emissions; (c) Improve our understanding of chemical and physical processes relevant to assessing the effects of air pollutants on ecosystems and human health in order to support the development of cost-effective abatement strategies; and 7. EMEP monitoring should be designed to fulfill its purpose. 8. EMEP monitoring should form the core infrastructure for monitoring atmospheric composition change throughout its domain (d) Explore the environmental concentrations of new chemical substances that might require the attention of the Convention in the future
