Abstract: Within Fairmode, it is planned to organize an intercomparison exercise of methods for the assessment of the spatial representativeness of monitoring sites. It is expected that the outcomes of the proposed intercomparison exercise will substantially support future efforts towards a harmonized methodological framework to facilitate the reporting of spatial representativeness by the Member States. This report presents a feasibility study including a Bibliographical review of the studies done for experts published in scientific journals or technical reports , a tentative definition of the concept of spatial representativeness after reviewing the papers and reports found in the bibliographical review , the development of a questionnaire to get technical information of the methodologies used to estimate the area of representativeness of air quality monitoring stations by the main expert groups in Europe, an analysis of the survey results and a discussion about the feasibility of an intercomparison exercise for methodologies estimating the spatial representativeness of monitoring stations.
