Thanks! For some reason that article doesn't appear to be in the actual paper (or at least not the iPad version).
The new article seems more muddled than the one from last year. The map is identical (and now out of date to the latest EEA air quality report data). Also, I think it's a bit misleading for it to talk about exceeding WHO guidelines by 40 times when the EEA's new 2016 report still clearly says:
The target value for BaP for the protection of human health is set at 1 ng/m3 (EU, 2004) as an annual mean (Table 6.1). WHO has not drafted a guideline for BaP
The report does go on to say:
The estimated reference level presented in Table 6.1 (0.12 ng/m3) was estimated assuming WHO unit risk for lung cancer for PAH mixtures and an acceptable risk of additional lifetime cancer risk of approximately 1 × 10-5 (ETC/ACM, 2011).
And it's this estimated reference level that has been exceeded by 40 times.
However, it's worth pointing out that the average concentration found at the Polish stations in the latest report was 4.8 times higher than the target value - an increase from the previous year's 4.6 times, which is definitely not
a step in the right direction.
