Predictability of European air quality: Assessment of 3 years of operational forecasts and analyses by the PREV'AIR system
For the first time, the long-term evaluation of an operational real-time air quality forecasting and analysis system is presented, using error statistics over 3 consecutive years. This system, calledExpand
