Abstract

Northern and western parts of Turkey frequently experience air pollution episodes. Transport of air pollutants from Europe to these regions has not been studied sufficiently. This study aims to identify and analyze the contribution of long-range aerosol transport to air pollution in the city of Istanbul. Istanbul is the largest urban settlement in Northwestern Turkey, with more than 12 million inhabitants in the metropolitan area.
