Air pollution removed by vegetation in the UK, 2015

This dataset is a model output from the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (EMEP) model applied to the UK (EMEP4UK) driven by Weather and Research Forecast model meteorology (WRF). It provides UK estimates annual averaged atmospheric composition at approximately 5Km grid for the year 2015 for a set of vegetation removal experiments.

* UK current vegetation

* UK no vegetation

* UK Urban current vegetation

* UK No urban vegetation

* UK Urban 25% open greenspace conversion

* UK Urban 50% open greenspace conversion

The EMEP model version used here is the rv4.10 and rv4.17, and the WRF model version is the 3.7.1.
