  1. 12th Annual Meeting of EMEP Task Force on Measurements and Modeling11-13 May 2011 , Zurich Implementation of the new emep monitoring strategy in the Czech Republic Milan Váňa Czech Hydrometeorological Institute Košetice Observatory

  2. SvratouchEMEP – regional background Geographical co-ordinates: 4973´ N, 1603´ EAltitude (m a.s.l.): 737

  3. Košetice ObservatoryEMEP, GAW, ACTRIS – regional backgroundGeographical co-ordinates: N 49o 35´ E 15o 05´Altitude (m a.s.l.): 534 .

  4. How to support LEVEL 2 activities? • National support • Co-operation with universities and other scientific institutes • National projects • International projects

  5. National support • Czech National Air Quality monitoring network • Support of activities under CLRTAP from Ministry of the Environment(limited)

  6. Universities and other scientific institutes • Research Centre for Toxic Compounds in the Environment – Masaryk University, Brno (RECETOX) – POPs • The Institute of Chemical Process Fundamentals (ICPF) – Czech Academy of Science – Aerosols • Global Change Research Centre - Czech Academy of Science – Czech Globe project, ICOS, GHG, aerosols…

  7. RECETOX Research Centre for Toxic Compounds in the Environment • Long-term monitoring of POPs at Košetice Observatory since 1988. • Daily measurements in ambient air and wet deposition. • Long-term monitoring in surface water, sediments, soil, tree needles. • PCBs, HCHs, DDTs, HCB, PCB and PAHs are analyzed in all mentioned compartments of the environment

  8. PROJECTS • EUSAAR/ACTRIS • ICOS • Czech Globe

  9. EUSAAR (2006-2011) Integration of measurements of atmospheric aerosol properties performed in a distributed network of 20 high quality European ground-based stations (Supersites). Benefits for EMEP measurements at Košetice • aerosol chemical properties (inorganic/organic composition)- aerosol physical properties (size distribution, mass) Co-operation with The Institute of Chemical Process Fundamentals (ICPF)

  10. ACTRIS Aerosols, Clouds and Trace gases Research Infrastructure Network 7th Framework Programme INFRA-2010-1.1.16 Research Infrastructures for Atmospheric research

  11. NA3: In-situ chemical, physical and optical properties of aerosols • Continuation of EUSAAR • To ensure the implementation of the existing standardized protocols for high-quality-assured and - controlled aerosol number size distributions in the network and to develop procedures for its extension to the nucleation mode range  • To ensure the implementation of the existing standardized protocols of high-quality assured and - controlled aerosol measurements of scattering and absorption coefficients and the development of standardized procedures of spectral absorption measurements.  • To ensure the implementation of the existing harmonized protocols for sampling and analysis of organic/elemental carbon and to develop standardized protocols for sampling and quantification of organic tracers for source identification • To develop standardized protocols for high-quality assured and - controlled measurements of cloud condensation nuclei. • To ensure diffusion of information to data centers

  12. NA4: Trace gases networking: Volatile organic carbon and nitrogen oxides • To integrate and harmonize trace gas measurements in Europe, with the result of having a sustainable and reliable observation network for highly time-resolved data across Europe.  • To implement standardized measurement protocols (SOPs) and common European calibration scales for VOCs and NOxy in support of the European EMEP and global GAW strategy and according to data quality objectives formulated by these initiatives.  • To create a protocol for merging the information of ground-based in-situ and remote sensing capacities in order to achieve more comprehensive distributions of VOCs and NOxy in Europe.  • To foster the dissemination of the methods and quality assured data to scientific groups related to the analysis and modeling of air pollutants in Europe and to support EC directives relevant for air pollution and the CLRTAP abatement strategies

  13. Czech Globe The principal activity of Czech Globe is a comprehensivescientific research on issues of the GC and its impacts on the atmosphere, terrestrial biota and human society. Benefits for EMEP measurements at Košetice: • Participation in ICOS project • Equipment for climate related measurements – optical features of the atmosphere

  14. The ICOS Atmospheric station • Not finally decided yet • Scientifically accepted • Technical business to be finalize ownership issues to solute (fields in the surrounding of the Observatory)

  15. The ICOS Atmospheric station Core parameters – continuous: CO2, CH4, CO, meteo Core parameters – periodic: flask samples - concentrations and isotopes Additional parameters: N2O, SF6, O2/N2, Rn-222, etc.

  16. Equipment for climate related measurements – optical features of the atmosphere • Instrument for measurement of the light absorption on atmospheric aerosols • Instrument for measurements of the light-scattering coefficient of atmospheric aerosols • Semi-continuous field analyzer for measurement of elemental and organic carbon • Automatic analyzer of total gaseous mercury concentrations

  17. Optical features of aerosols

  18. Conclusion The approach of co-located measurements and using one representative site for more activities brings quite sufficient coverage of new EMEP monitoring strategy
