Air pollution measurements in the Czech Republic from 1992 through 1994 provided data on ambient concentrations of sulfur dioxide, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, fine and coarse particle mass, and elemental composition. The primary monitoring sites were located in Teplice in northwestern Bohemia and Prachatice in southern Bohemia. Emissions from power plants, residential space heating, local factories, and motor vehicles were also collected and characterized. The ambient and source data were then used in receptor modeling calculations, which indicated that home heating and power plant emissions were responsible for up to 80% of fine particle mass concentrations observed during winter inversion episodes. The measurements made in Teplice were used to assess the impact of air pollution on health effects and to assist in the design of a epidemiological study for the region.
