Title: UDP - NO2 concentration, 2010 - 2050 (JRC LUISA Reference Scenario 2016)
This indicator measures the annual mean concentrations of NO2 (µg/m3). NO2 is one of the main pollutants emitted by road vehicles, shipping, power generation industry and households. Because of its high impact on human health, the EU Air Quality Directive (2008/50/EC) has set forth legally binding limit values for ground-level concentrations of NO2: the annual mean limit value is set to 40μg/m3. Annual mean concentrations NO2 were calculated using Land Use Regression (LUR) Models. The LUR model was built using annual mean NO2 concentration for 2010 from the monitoring sites included in the AirBase database (dependent variable) and several parameters (independent variables) defined within a Geographic Information System (GIS).
