Relative contribution of different factors to the net modelled ozone change
Model sensitivity studies allow disentangling the various factors bearing upon future ozone exposure in Europe. The emission scenarios considered here are those of the Global Energy Assessment (Riahi et al., 2012): the reference scenario ignores any climate policy, while the mitigation scenario aims at limiting global warming at 2°C by the end of the century, they have identical air quality policy targets.
Boxes in the right half of each graph indicate an increase in SOMO35; in the left half, a decrease.
