This report has been prepared for the Helsinki Commission (HELCOM), Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission, based on model estimates and monitoring results which have been presented to the twenty-ninth session of the Steering Body of EMEP (Co-operative Programme for Monitoring and Evaluation of Long-Range Transmission of Air Pollutants in Europe). This present, seventh joint summary report for HELCOM includes the measurements and results of modelling in the Baltic Sea region for oxidized nitrogen, reduced nitrogen, lead, cadmium, mercury and lindane for the year 2003. It has been developed in a frame of close collaboration between three modelling and monitoring EMEP centres: MSC-W, MSC-E and CCC, and is available now on the EMEP WEB pages and later on the HELCOM WEB pages. The report, as a draft, was presented and discussed at the Eighth MONAS Meeting (21-25/11/2005) in Riga, Latvia. Participants of this meeting were asked for the comments and corrections which will be taken into account in the final version. All comments/corrections received form the HELCOM Parties are listed on this site. All additional comments, corrections and suggestions should be sent to Jerzy Bartnicki or co-authors, preferably by e-mail.
Acknowledgments. The authors are indebted to the scientific teams at MSC-E, MSC-W and CCC for providing the results included in this report and especially to Per Helmer Skaali for his help with the Internet related tasks, and many other matters. We are grateful to Ms. Marina Varygina, Dr. Ilia Iliyn and Prof. Victor Shatalov for their contribution to this work, valuable remarks and comments.
