Abstract: In this work we assess for the first time the impact of a poliy measure on population exposure to NO2 by using the activity-based model ALBATROSS, the emission model MIMOSA and the dispersion model AURORA. We found that widening shop opening hours changes the activity pattern of the adult population in the Netherlands. It increases kilometres driven and, as a consequence, emissions. When watching the concentration maps with the dynamic population, we observe an increase in population exposure to NO2.
