Objective

The installation of FUMAPEX is based on requests from authorities for precise forecasting of urban air pollution (UAP) episodes to fulfil European Air Quality Directives. Operational Urban Air Quality Information and Forecasting Systems (UAQIFS) are already implemented in several European cities and it is likely that such systems will be more widespread in the future. The quality of these systems mainly depends on the mapping of emissions, the air quality model, and the meteorological forecast data in urban areas. FUMAPEX focuses on the quality of numerical weather prediction applications in urban areas, and of developing interfaces from NWP to UAP and population exposure (PE) models. The ultimate goal of the project is to produce improvements in presently available UAQIFS. The improved UAQIFS will be applied in 4 European cities, and local authorities will be directly involved both in the design, and as end-users of the system.
