Long-term measurements to determine the quantity and chemical composition of suspended particles at high temporal resolution are useful to gain insight into the effects of particulate matter on health and the environment. In the south-east of Scotland, such measurements are being taken as part of the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (EMEP), which focuses on the monitoring and evaluation of the long-range, transboundary transmission of air-polluting substances in Europe. The programme serves to regularly equip European governments with the scientific knowledge required to reduce air pollution and mitigate its effects.
