A national day with near zero emissions – real life case study for the Day of Atonement in Israel

Ilan Levy

This study examines the short term effects of a drastic change in emissions on a national scale. A case study in Israel is analyzed where nearly all anthropogenic emission sources are ceased for a period of ~25 hours during the Jewish holiday of Day of Atonement (DA), including all vehicles, commercial, industrial and recreational activities.
