Description Main purpose of the on-line descriptive browser is to facilitate search over and work with the reported GMP data. The browser provides easily accessible information on performance of monitoring programmes1 in individual countries and/or regions sorted by matrices, time, and compounds. Only annually aggregated concentration values are shown. There are six analytical tools presenting data from all UNEP-GMP reports in a different manner and scale: 1) Monitoring overview: an interactive map displaying monitoring activities in the individual years. 2) Available data – parameters: regional availability of monitoring data on compounds of interest in key matrices. 3) Available data – years: regional availability of monitoring data in selected time periods 4 Reported values: reported concentrations in the key matrices. For air, only the concentration values reported from the background (urban, suburban, rural, remote, mountain and polar) sites were included. 5) Regional backgrounds – data validation: a 6-step validation procedure of data from ambient air monitoring. 6) Regional backgrounds – inter-regional variability: statistical evaluation of reported background atmospheric concentrations.
