A pragmatic, data driven approach, which for the first time combines existing in situ and remote sensing data sets with a
networked mobile air pollutant measurement strategy in the urban space is an objective of the Smart Air Quality
Network (SmartAQnet) project. It aims to implement an intelligent, reproducible, finely-tuned (spatial, temporal), yet
cost-effective air quality measuring network, initially in the model region of Augsburg, Germany. Central to this is the
development and utilization of partial, already existing (but not yet combined) data on the one hand and the collection
and integration of relevant missing data on the other hand. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) with low-weight
meteorological sensors and particle counter are used to monitor the three-dimensional dynamics of the lower atmosphere.
Ground-based remote sensing by ceilometer for mixing layer height detection as well as a Radio-Acoustic Sounding
System (RASS) for temperature and wind profile measurements at the University campus complete the new network
architecture and UAV height profiling of atmospheric parameters.
The SmartAQnet research initiative focuses on the subject of data access and data-based applications. ... mehr
