The number of air pollutant measuring spots will be increased from 2 to 3 in China and all three countries will include PM10, PM2.5, O3, SO2 and NO2 as the measure subjects.
In addition, modelling areas for emitting source-receiving area impact analysis will be expanded from 5 areas to 8 areas to include the entire China. And, three countries will strengthen concentrated measuring to analyze characteristics of long-range transboundary air pollutants and bring forward the concentrated measuring from 2016 to 2015.
