Revision of PM10 emissions over time

Changes within the National Total reported for 1995 (+23.32 kt | +7.01 %) are dominated by increased emission estimates from NFRs 1.A.3.b i, 1.A.3.b ii, 1.A.3.b iii and 2.A.5.a together with a reduction in NFR 5.E.

The small changes within the National Total reported for 2017 (+0.76 kt | +0.37 %)are dominated by revised estimates for NFRs 2.A.5.a (+2.46 kt) and 5.E (-2.33 kt).
Furthermore, a variety of several more or less significant revisions occur in NFRs 1, 2, 3 and 5.
