  • New tool to study air quality developed in Spain

    Air quality models have achieved a great degree of sophistication over the last few years thanks mainly to scientific and computational advances. These are tools that simulate the dynamics of the atmosphere and estimate the impact of particular sources of contamination such as industries or traffic on air quality so that plans and decisions can then be made according to the produced results. The ...

  • Urban trees could improve air quality, according to EU study

    Planting trees in urban areas could cut particulate pollution in cities by as much as a quarter, according to a new study. Small air particles, especially those less than 10μm in diameter (PM10) pose a long-term threat to human health. These can originate from human activities, including exhaust fumes or smoke, or from natural causes, such as dust. The study shows that trees are particularly ...

  • Air quality linked to wellbeing at a regional level in Europe

    The impact of air quality on public welfare is important to policy development. However, it is difficult to make a clear link between the two when air pollution tends to be reported at a country level and wellbeing is an individual measure. A new study takes a step further towards linking the two by analysing regional level air quality across the EU and relating it to levels of life satisfaction. ...

  • ECN launches research to improve air quality
