The impact of traffic emissions on atmospheric ozone and OH: results from QUANTIFY

Source: Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, vol.9,no.9 (2009)
"To estimate the impact of emissions by road, aircraft and ship traffic on ozone and OH in the present-day atmosphere six different atmospheric chemistry models have been used. Based on newly developed global emission inventories for road, ship and aircraft emission data sets each model performed sensitivity simulations reducing the emissions of each transport sector by 5%."
