Abstract: The causes of air pollution in three cities of the Danube region (Budapest, Sofia and Zagreb) were studied using datasets of measurements and modelling tools. The contributions from different activity sectors, including natural sources and their geographical origin were quantified. It was observed that most of the pollutants are emitted locally. However, the medium to long range transport may be also considerable. On the basis of the output of the source identification, a series of measures were proposed to deal wtih the pollution problem at local, national and international levels.
