This is one part of a four-volume set that presents a state-of-the-science assessment of the intercontinental transport of air pollutants across the Northern Hemisphere. The first three volumes are technical assessments of the state-of-science with respect to intercontinental transport of ozone and particulate matter, mercury, and persistent organic pollutants. The fourth volume is a synthesis of the main findings and recommendations of Parts A, B, and C organized around a series of policy-relevant questions that were identified at the Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution’s first meeting.

Preface

In December 2004, in recognition of an increasing body of scientific evidence suggesting the potential importance of intercontinental flows of air pollutants, the Convention on Longrange Transboundary Air Pollution (LRTAP Convention) created the Task Force on Hemispheric Transport of Air Pollution (TF HTAP). Under the leadership of the European Union and the United States, the TF HTAP was charged with improving the understanding of the intercontinental transport of air pollutants across the Northern Hemisphere for consideration by the Convention. Parties to the Convention were encouraged to designate experts to participate, and the task force chairs were encouraged to invite relevant experts to participate from countries outside the Convention.
