How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
The Urban Tool for Air Quality (UTAQ) is a project funded by CAMS (Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service) - ECMWF (European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts). UTAQ is a web-based tool with a user-friendly interface that allows users to evaluate current and forecasted air quality for the following 4 days at urban scale with high resoluti...
UTAQ (Urban Tool for Air Quality) is a European project funded by CAMS (Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service) ECMWF (European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts). UTAQ (Urban Tool for Air Quality) is a Web application that allows to analyze current and forecasted air quality on an urban scale at high resolution (10-50 m). On the one hand...
While in general air quality has improved in Europe over the past decades, there are still problems with exceedances of ambient air quality limit values in many urban areas. To design efficient Air Quality Plans to face these problems, methodologies and tools are required to assess the effects of possible abatement measures on local air quality. On...
To evaluate in practice how IAM can be used to formulate and improve current air quality plans, this chapter reports on the application of one of the existing IAM tools, to two test cases: one for the Brussels Capital Region in Belgium and the other to the region of Porto in the North of Portugal. The two cases are representative for the two option...
Increased water demand and climate change impacts have recently enhanced the need to improve water resources management, even in those areas which traditionally have an abundant supply of water, such as the Po Valley in northern Italy. The highest consumption of water is devoted to irrigation for agricultural production, and so it is in this area t...
This study presents an evaluation of the impact by future pollutant anthropogenic emission reductions on summertime aerosol feedbacks over the Po valley. The fully coupled on line model Wrf/Chem has been used to examine the air quality and meteorology response over the region to 2020 emission reductions with respect to a simulation base case (2013)...
In last decades, air pollution modelling assumed a key role for the definition and evaluation of suitable emission control strategies, supporting Regional Decision Makers in the design of long-term plans for air quality improvement. This is a complex task, due to the non-linear chemical reactions and physical processes that bring to secondary pollu...
The aim of EPICO19 project is to support public health technicians and decision makers in managing the COVID-19 pandemic in progress. EPICO19 is a tool designed as a Web based GIS (Geographic Information System) DSS (Decision Support System), led by an epidemiological modelling and a logistic engine that analyze and predict the historical and the real-time transmission of SARS-COV-2 virus at a local level, keeping into account spatio-temporal correlations. This project is funded by European Spatial Agency ESA (ESA Contract No. 4000131356/20/NL/AF).
Reducing the uncertainties related to emission estimation compilation will lead to a better development, implementation and evaluation of air quality assessment, air quality plans and source apportionment in the framework of the Ambient Air Quality Directives. Provide the recommendations to support modelling groups in reducing modelling uncertainties related to emission processing. Provide operational guidelines concerning integration and harmonization of urban/regional emission inventory.
