Abstract

To mitigate the environmental impacts of synthetic halocarbons it is crucial to quantify their emissions to the atmosphere on different spatial scales. For this, top-down modelling approaches were developed, relying on atmospheric concentration observations. However, increased sensitivity on country-scale is needed, requiring a denser measurement network and models operating on a regional scale. In this light, we conducted an extensive study to assess Swiss halocarbon emissions, with high sensitivity to the regional emissions sources.
