Abstract: A feasibility study for organizing an intercomparison exercise (IE) of the methods used for estimating of the area of representativeness of the Air Quality Monitoring Stations (SR) in Europe has been carried out. It showed that it should be possible to compare the extent of SR determined by the different methods. Moreover, at the FAIRMODE-Aveiro meeting in 2015, the participants agreed to carry out the intercomparison exercise assessing the SR estimates for PM10 and NO2 at one traffic station, and for PM10, NO2 and O3 at two urban background stations. This report presents a dataset suitable for the FAIRMODE IE of the area of representativeness of Air Quality Monitoring Stations in the urban area of Antwerp (Belgium) for the year 2012. Three monitoring stations, Borgerhout-Straatkant, Antwerpen-Linkeroever and Schoten, have been selected for the evaluation. The dataset includes the model results for interpolated annual means on a fine regular grid, hourly time series at a number of 341 virtual receptor points to which random noise have been added, data from measurements of the Antwerp automatic monitoring stations, individual sampling campaigns, emissions, traffic, population density, building information, gridded CORINE land cover data, a short summary of PM10 speciated data and daily time profiles for traffic.
