New tools for assessing personal exposure near urban air pollution hotspots

Tsegas, George; Moussiopoulos, Nicolas

Abstract:
During the last decade, researchers and policy makers have focused on the development and deployment of air pollution mitigation measures invoking solutions based on technology transfer. This term encompasses the synthesis of air quality monitoring, primarily by networks of inexpensive sensors, remote sensing and numerical modelling, as tools for supporting policy makers and disseminating air quality information to the citizens. It has been recognised that localised concentration maxima developing around traffic sources represent an exposure contribution of major epidemiological significance. The ability, therefore, of an integrated air quality management system to reliably assess personal exposure heavily depends on the consistent numerical treatment of multiscale interactions which determine the flow and dispersion structures in these fine spatial scales. Moreover, it is important to incorporate innovative methodologies for enhancing the stability and error-resilience of the sensor networks themselves. The approach presented in this work focuses on the utilisation of latest developments both in sensor technology and numerical air quality modelling, so as to provide end products able to support regulatory assessment and environmental information services. ... mehr
