Air pollutants in Ireland: emissions, depositions and publications: 1989-1994.
McGettigan, M. F.; O'Donnell, C
A major review of air quality in Ireland during the period 1981 through 1991 was published in 1993 (McGettigan, Q'Donnell and Bowman, 1993). The report presented detailed information on air quality and acid deposition in the country and outlined all relevant air quality and emission control mechanisms, of both national and international nature, then in place in this country. The principal objective of the present report, the first of its kind by the Environmental Protection Agency, is to provide new and updated information on air quality throughout the country, assess the current level of emissions and depositions of important air pollutants and describe important new developments in the monitoring of ambient air quality. Other objectives are to identify where improvements are necessary in existing air quality monitoring networks and to assess what additional information should be gathered on a range of parameters not currently subject to routine measurement. The report also provides important up-to-date material as background to the first EPA report on the state of the environment in Ireland.
