Épisodes de pollution particulaire en France : quels enseignements tirer des récents épisodes ?

Abstract : Particulate air pollution in Europe and in France is largely influenced by episode situations, when concentrations reach potentially high values. Even if there is no health threshold below which no harmful impact occurs, it is interesting to investigate causes of particulate air pollution episodes, to highlight main drivers and support the development of most appropriate air pollution control strategies. Those drivers rely on emissions, meteorology, site characteristics, and long range transport. Analysis and simulation of the most recent episodes allowed better understanding of air pollution according to the period of the year and the location. Such results are presented in this paper which refers to air quality monitoring and forecasting scientific studies developed in France for many years. They show the importance of two aspects of current air control strategies, requested for improving action: anticipation, now available through operational air quality forecasting systems and consistency of joint strategies targeting various sources and geographical scales.
