|Characterisation Method Name:|
|SO2 impact on wood|
|Principal Method Name:|
|EPS: secondary aerosol pathway|
|Model for secondary aerosol pathway|
The characterisation factor is determined by an equivalency method using PM10 as a reference.
The same equivalency factor is used as in "SO2 impact on severe morbidity", i.e. 2.83 kg ‘effective’ PM10/kg SO2.
Calculation of characterisation factor
According to "PM10 impact on wood" there are 0.00991 kg wood per kg PM10. This will give 2.83*0.00991 = 0.0281 kg wood per kg SO2.
