Short summary
In a companion paper, we investigated airmass exchanges from the Po plain to the Alps through detailed case studies. Here (part 2) we use 3 years of multi-sensor observations and models to quantify the long-term impact of transport on air quality (>25% on PM10) and aerosol physico-chemical characteristics. We quantify the frequency of occurrence (up to 70% of days) in relation to meteorology (wind flows). We also show how the experimental results can improve air-quality forecasting capabilities.
