Summary: Emissions from domestic heating due to woodburning are one of the main emissions sources of PM in Norway. However there are uncertianties in the emission data and especially how much these emissions contribute to the concentrations. Dispersion modeling has been performed for Oslo with different emission scenarios to test some of the parameters related to this emission source. The model results show that the wood burning contribution is overestimated, especially in the evening and conclusions are that the emissions of wood burning are wrong both in quantity as well as spacial distribution in time variation.
