Air quality monitoring and management 2022-03-29T13:49:41+00:00

Product Description

A webinar aiming to provide basic knowledge about the primary principles of air quality monitoring and management.

The participants will be able to understand the effects and the key factors of air pollution, the linkages to the urban environment and public health, as well as methods to explore qualitatively the air pollution patterns over a specific area.

The webinar is mainly non-technical and targets planners on regional/city/municipal scale as well professionals with no extensive experience in air quality.

Topics covered by the webinar:

  • Demonstrate/Collect existing EO technologies and data to collect spatiotemporal measurements and forecasts of air pollution.
  • Apply satellite-derived and ground-based data into air quality planning and decision making usable information.
  • Understand relationships among emission sources, meteorological conditions, monitoring and modelling of air pollution for practical applications.

Learning outcomes

  • Recognize the basic atmospheric pollutants and their impact on climate and health.

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the natural processes involved in gas and particulate pollutants.

  • Apply this cognitive knowledge to explain state-of-the-art problems.

  • Process environmental information for the estimation of air pollution from individual sources.

  • Know computational tools and databases to record / visualize air pollution.
