Back-to-back with the TFIAM-session, the expert group (IVL, SRI Atmosphere, and SYKE) had a workshop on black carbon activities included in the project plan. The workshop started with presentations and discussion of the recent BC-related (modelling) activities in Sweden, Finland and Russian Federation, as well as discussion of the BC methodology in the GAINS model and the policy relevance of the planned project activates.
