Project description

New tools to help improve the air we breathe

What’s in the air we breathe? It contains emissions from motor vehicles, industry and heating as well as tobacco smoke and household fuels. Air pollution at current levels in European cities is responsible for a significant number of deaths, hospital admissions and the exacerbation of a variety of symptoms, according to the World Health Organisation. The EU-funded AQ-WATCH project will make use of satellite observations, in situ measurements and modelling products to improve air quality forecasts. It will develop tailored products and services that can be used by governmental institutions and private companies to help mitigate air pollution. The project will allow for the first time small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to integrate a large number of datasets associated with Earth observations with advanced predictive models.
