Abstract/Summary

An important application of atmospheric transport models is to estimate the contribution of different sources of emissions to pollutant deposition. This can rarely be achieved by measurement A simple Lagrangian atmospheric transport model. FRAME, was employed to assess the contribution to sulphur and nitrogen deposition in the UK from 160 different point and area sources in the UK as well as European emissions and international shipping For the year 2005, the largest emissions sources for dry deposition of SOx, NOy and NHx were power stations, road transport and livestock respectively, comprising 29%, 42% and 52% of the totals. For wet deposition, European emissions were important. comprising 31%, 35% and 41% of total deposition for SOx. NOy and NHx respectively. International shipping emissions of SO2 and NOx were also significant, contributing 21% and 17% of wet deposition of SOx and NOy
