Old EMEP MSC-W calculated SR country tables and data

The depositions of sulphur (S) and nitrogen (N), and air concentrations of ozone (O3) and particulate matter (PM) available here are calculated with the EMEP MSC-W model as earlier reported in the annual EMEP status reports.

Data produced by EMEP MSC-W are licensed under Norwegian license for public data (NLOD) and Creative Commons 4.0 BY International. Credit should be given to The Norwegian Meteorological institute, shortened "MET Norway", as the source of data. Some suggestions: "Data from The Norwegian Meteorological Institute", "Based on data from MET Norway".

Available data for download on this page is source receptor tables and country-to-grid data.




Types of model calculations

As the EMEP MSC-W model calculations are changing with time, not only because of EMEP MSC-W model updates, but also due to modifications of the input data (e.g. revised emission data and meteorology). In broad terms, two types of model results can be distinguished:

Model results of Type2 should be preferred when doing trend analyses.



User Guide to gridded SR data

Please remember to give suitable filenames to the downloaded files. Please note that the ASCII files are compatible with Excel.

The list-boxes above allow for multiple selections of Countries/Areas, Years and Chemical Components. With [CTRL]-[Left Mouse-Button] several items can be selected or deselected. With [Shift]-[Left Mouse-Button] a continuous list can be selected or deselected. You can also choose the format in which you wish to download the data. Country-to-grid SR data can be downloaded in two formats, either as Excel compatible ASCII files or maps.
When all selections are done, please press the Show Data button. If you need to redo the selection, please press the Clear All button and make your new selections. At least one item from each of the following categories needs to be selected:




Acidification and Eutrophication

Ground Level Ozone

Particulate matter

Additional Particulate matter (only 2011)

Fine Sulphate

Fine Ammonium

Fine and Coarse Nitrate

Fine and Coarse Elemental Carbon
