The first data sets from the Create project are available from its partners. Some data are preliminary - for information on data quality, please contact the respective PIs. For site locations please check the site map for CREATE sites or a map including EMEP PM sites.

Please note:
The parameter "Particle number distribution" is now (from 1.January 2008) called "Particle number size distribution".

Acknowledgements: For scientific puropses, access to these data is unlimited and provided without charge. By their use you accept that an offer of co-authorship will be made through personal contact with the data providers or owners whenever substantial use is made of their data. In all cases, an acknowledgement must be made to the data providers or owners and to the data centre when these data are used within a publication.

EC/OC data from the EMEP PM10 campaign during July 2002 - June 2003 can be downloaded from the online EMEP database under 'Particulate matter'. The measurement campaign is also presented in 'Measurements of particulate matter: Status report 2004' (EMEP/CCC-Report 3/2004).
