Topic outline

  • General information

    This workshop aims to provide advanced knowledge about the primary principles of air quality monitoring and management. The participants will be informed:

    • about EO technologies and data to collect spatiotemporal measurements and forecasts of air pollution
    • how to make usable satellite-derived and ground-based data into air quality planning and decision
    • about relationships among emission sources, meteorological conditions, monitoring and modelling of air pollution for practical applications
