Short summary
In order to assess the effects of ship emissions in and around the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, regional model calculations are made with the EMEP air pollution model. Ship emissions are based on accurate ship positioning data. The effects on depositions and air pollution and the resulting number of years of life lost (YOLLs) are calculated by comparing model calculations with and without ship emissions, with ship emissions before and after 2010, and for future projections.
