Maps

03.10.1 NOx Nitrogen Oxide Emissions on Primary Roads 1993

Link to: 03.10.1 NOx Nitrogen Oxide Emissions on Primary Roads 1993
Image: Umweltatlas Berlin

To assess the pollution of the primary road network, nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions are mapped by section. Nitrogen oxides are acidifiers and therefore detrimental to human health. They are also precursors of ground-level ozone. More information

03.10.2 NOx Nitrogen Oxide Emissions in Entire Road Network 1993

To assess the pollution of the primary road network, nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions are mapped in a 1 km2 grid for the entire city. Nitrogen oxides are acidifiers and therefore detrimental to human health. They are also precursors of ground-level ozone. More information

03.10.3 Exhaust Particle Emissions on Primary Roads 1993

Link to: 03.10.3 Exhaust Particle Emissions on Primary Roads 1993
Image: Umweltatlas Berlin

To assess the pollution of the primary road network, exhaust particle emissions (diesel soot) are mapped by section. As a main component of exhaust particles, diesel soot is considered carcinogenic and therefore detrimental to human health. More information

03.10.4 Diesel Particulate Emissions on Primary Roads 1993

Link to: 03.10.4 Diesel Particulate Emissions on Primary Roads 1993
Image: Umweltatlas Berlin

To assess the pollution of the primary road network, diesel soot emissions are mapped by section. As a main component of exhaust particles, diesel soot is considered carcinogenic and therefore detrimental to human health. More information

03.10.5 Tire Abrasion Emissions on Primary Roads 1993

Link to: 03.10.5 Tire Abrasion Emissions on Primary Roads 1993
Image: Umweltatlas Berlin

To assess the pollution of the primary road network, the emissions from tyre abrasion are mapped by section. Tyre abrasion also contributes to the carcinogenic total soot levels, which is mainly influenced by the traffic volume and not by the type of engine. More information

This map presents the immission calculation results for the primary road network in relation to diesel soot. It reveals highly polluted areas and indicates areas for further investigation. More information

03.10.8 NO2 Nitrogen Dioxide Pollutions Calculated for Primary Roads 1993

Link to: 03.10.8 NO2 Nitrogen Dioxide Pollutions Calculated for Primary Roads 1993
Image: Umweltatlas Berlin

This map presents the immission calculation results for the primary road network in relation to nitrogen dioxide (NO2). It reveals highly polluted areas and indicates areas for further investigation. More information

03.10.9 Calculated Benzol and Particulate Pollutions; Current 1993 and Projected 2010
