Short summary
We used detailed speciated measurements of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) to evaluate the spatial heterogeneity of VOC urban emission composition and the consistency of regional and global emission inventories downscaled to Lebanon (EMEP, ACCMIP, and MACCity). The results suggest that systematic and detailed measurements are needed in the eastern Mediterranean Basin in order to better constrain emission inventories.
