Ground-based remote sensing by three ceilometers for mixing layer height detection over Augsburg as well as a Radio-
Acoustic Sounding System (RASS) for temperature and wind profile measurements at the campus of Augsburg
University are applied together with UAV height profiling with low-weight meteorological sensors and particle counter
to monitor the three-dimensional dynamics of the lower atmosphere. Results about meteorological influences upon
spatial variation of air pollution exposure are presented on this data basis which is more than one year long. Special
focus is on the information about atmospheric layering as well as mixing and transport conditions for emitted particulate
matter. Better understanding of these complex processes support knowledge about quality of air, which we breath, and
especially high air pollution episodes and hot spot pollution regions.
