For example, Fig. 2 shows national emission inventories for the United Kingdom for nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, ammonia and non-methane VOC for 2001, showing widely different source profiles. Such information is useful in comparing the emissions between different countries.

In some cities in the north-western corner of the Russian Federation, close to large primary smelters, daily concentrations of sulfur dioxide exceed 1000 μg/m3 (50,51). Nitrogen dioxide, a problem related mainly to mobile sources The principal sources of nitrogen dioxide are traffic and to a lesser extent industry, shipping and households. High nitrogen dioxide levels, combined with ultrafine particles and other oxidants, have become one of the major air pollution problems in urban areas all over the world.
