Title: UDP - PM10 concentration, 2010 - 2050 (JRC LUISA Reference Scenario 2016)
This indicator measures the annual mean concentrations of PM10 (µg / m3). PM10 is one of the main pollutants emitted by household and (to a lower extent) commercial and institutional fuel combustion, followed by industrial activities and transport. 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 PM10: the daily limit value is set to 50μg/m3. Annual mean concentrations PM10 were calculated using Land Use Regression (LUR) Models. The LUR model was built using annual mean PM10 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).
