Air Quality: Worldwide Analysis and Forecasting of Atmospheric Composition for Health

 

OUR PRODUCTS

  • 01 / Global & Regional atlases of air quality indices and reports

    Graphical and numerical information on the regional climatology of air pollutants based on satellite information including air quality indices and health indices; Production of a global atlas of air quality with regional graphical information.

  • 02 / Daily forecasts of air quality for metropolitan areas

    Daily forecast of air pollution at the regional scale based on different predictive models and satellite and ground-based information.

  • 03 / Dust and solar energy forecasts

    Predictions of the degradation of air quality and reduction in visibility caused by dust mobilization and impact on solar energy systems.

  • 04 / Wildfire and Visibility Service

    Predictions of the degradation of air quality and reduction in visibility caused by the occurrence of wildfires and the development of a related regional alert system.

  • 05 / Information service about air pollution from fracking operations

    Model predictions of the potential impact on regional air quality (e.g., ozone levels) due to fracking operations and determination of the exposure of the local population to related emissions of hydrocarbons.

  • 06 / Attribution service with focus on agricultural sources

    Information on the attribution of emission sources for different economic sectors with emphasis on the role of agricultural emissions.

  • 07 / Emission mitigation service

    Development of a demonstration model to allow future customers to assess of the efficiency of alternative actions to mitigate air pollution. The development of strategy options for air pollution abatement and support of air quality policy.

THE PROJECT

Objectives

The project will develop a supply chain leading to the generation of seven downstream products and services for improving air quality forecasts and attribution. These innovative products and services are aimed at improving public health and optimizing service provided by the energy sector in different regions of the world.

Organisation

AQ-WATCH will develop dynamic interactions between the developers of the prototype products/services and the prime users in 3 regions of the world. The process by which value is added to space and in situ data will be modulated by the input of these users and will involve successive iterations during which feedback reactions are collected and analyzed, and taken into account.

Stakeholders network

To broaden the participation and the influence of the project, other potential users and customers will be invited to join the Stakeholders Network (SN). The SN is considered to be a central tool for implementing a co-production process, for developing a market strategy and a sustained business model and for developing dissemination activities.
