Abstract:

In this study, we quantify the health burden due to local air pollution for the Warsaw, Poland. From different air pollutants we considered particulate matter (PM), nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SO2), benzo(a)pyrene (BaP) and heavy metals. The annual mean concentrations were predicted with CALMET/CALPUFF modeling system using year 2012 emission and meteorological data. The emission fields comprised high (power generation) and low (industry) point sources, mobile sources (transport) and area sources (housing). The exposure to these pollutants was estimated using population data with spatial resolution of 500x500 m2. Changes in mortality and in disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) were estimated with relative risk functions obtained from literature.
