IAQM Webinar: Air Quality and Health, 1970 to 2030

Bernard Fisher, the newly appointed first President of the IAQM, opens the IAQM 2020 webinar series with a talk about the EMEP (European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme).

In this talk, Bernard presents estimates of the number of premature deaths per year in the UK associated with secondary ambient air concentrations of ammonia, sulphur and nitrogen oxides. He also discusses the major limitations of this programme that have caused problems for air quality modellers since the late 1970s.
