This report has been prepared for the Helsinki Commission (HELCOM), Baltic Marine Environment Protection Commission, based on the model estimates and monitoring results which have been presented to the thirtieth 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, eighth 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 dioxins/furans for the year 2004. 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 Ninth MONAS Meeting (2-6/10/2006) in Silkeborg Denmark, together with corresponding drafts of the Indicator Fact Sheets. Participants of this meeting were asked for the comments and corrections which are taken into account in the final version of the report and Indicator Fact Sheets, as well. All comments/corrections received form the HELCOM Parties are listed on this site. Any additional comments should be sent to Jerzy Bartnicki or co-authors, preferably by e-mail.
