Abstract

Establishing links between pollution sources and receptors is important in developing policy for pollution control. Here the AA. use this approach in the context of the Yorkshire and Humberside region. Using the Hull Acid Rain Model (HARM), the contributions of different source types to total sulphur (S) deposition can be estimated. Comparison of deposition fields with critical-loads maps allows areas of exceedence (likely damage) to be identified. The potential for using a modelling approach to target emissions reductions on a plant-by-plant basis is discussed
