There is increasing observational evidence that heavy metals’ air emissions cause not only local contamination, but also travel long distances in Europe and contribute to widespread, although low-level, contamination of the environment (e.g. Pacyna, et al, 1984; Ottar, et al, 1989). The TRACE model (TRB.cetoxic Air Concentrations in fftirope) has been developed to compute the long range transport of various heavy metals (As, Cd, Pb, and Zn) on the European-scale. A preliminary version of this model was reported in Alcamo, et al (1991a) and model refinements and application are given in Alcamo, et al (1991b) and Bartnicki et al (1991).
