UBA | Updated statistical evaluation of spatial patterns of lead, cadmium and mercury levels in mosses in relation to atmospheric pollution
The study deals with the statistical verification of the correspondence of spatial distribution patterns of different indicators for the atmospheric pollution by lead, cadmium and mercury in Germany. New compared to the extensive statistical evaluations in the final report on moss monitoring 2016, see UBA texts 91/2019, is the inclusion of updated, now spatially high-resolution modeled concentrations of the three metals in the atmosphere and their deposition (EMEP) as well as, for the first time, technical measurements of the deposition Federal and state measuring networks in the evaluation. The report ends with recommendations for further environmental monitoring and the integrated evaluation of the data collected.
