Explanations and Imprint of the Map
  1. Compared to the 1994 edition, the sulfur dioxide emissions and pollution have exhibited a drastic decline. This is due above all to the collapse of the GDR and the decommissioning of numerous factories which resulted thereby as well as the implementation of the BImSchG emission reduction regulations in the eastern part of the city. In order to provide a more differentiated depiction of the spatial distribution, the assessment classes for emissions and pollution have to be changed with respect to those of 1989/91.
  2. The Map 03.01.9 shows the 98 % value as measure of short-term pollution. That means 98 % of all measurements lie below the I2 reference value. I1 and I2 do not completely reflect the procedure defined in the TA-Luft, esp. for East-Berlin.
  3. As a result of the drastic decline in sulfur dioxide concentrations in the air, this pollutant has lost its significance as a leading component for the degree of air pollution.
