Abstract : The HOVERT Horizontal and VERtical Transport of Ozone and particulate matter campaign held in the Berlin Brandenburg area in Eastern Germany from September 2001 to September 2002 allowed to collect a unique data set of the aerosol chemical speciation daily averages at traffic, urban and rural sites. These observations are used for a thorough evaluation of the aerosol part in the REM-CALGRID model RCG developed at the Free University of Berlin FUB. For inorganic ions sulphate, nitrate and ammonium, simulated annual averages agree to observations within ±30% at more than half of the sites and always within a factor of two. Correlation coefficients are larger than in previous studies for SO42- and NH4+ >0.7. For nitrate, less elevated correlations, 0.4–0.7 in the cold season, 0.2–0.4 in the warm season, are encountered. To our knowledge, this is one of the first comparisons of air quality model simulated elemental carbon EC and OC with daily observations for a whole year. It suggests an overestimation of EC and OC emissions in the Berlin area through a scaling techniques between EC, OC and NOx and when assuming correct NOx emissions, and an underestimation of EC and OC at rural sites. Secondary organic aerosol SOA formation, recently introduced into the model SORGAM module, Schell et al., 2001, is simulated as a very variable process, SOA levels varying from close to zero for most days to more than 5 µg-m3. Correlation between simulated SOA to observed OC is about 0.6, indicating that simulated variability partly corresponds to reality.
