Workshop on Air quality monitoring & management

Our pilot 2.3 | EO-based pollution-health risks profiling in the urban environment, participated in the Workshop on Air quality monitoring and management, on 17th of December, organized by University of Patras in Greece under the context of the EO4GEO program.

Eleni Athanasopoulou and Georgios Grivas from the National Observatory of Athens (NOA), informed university students about the e-shape pilot and NOA's contribution to the pilot's activities.

University students were familiarized with the e-shape project as a whole, they were informed about urban air quality issues and how these are combined with human health aspects in the frame of Pilot 2.3 | EO-based pollution-health risks profiling in the urban environment, and they were given details on air pollution monitoring by innovative sensors, as well as air pollution mapping by high resolution atmospheric numerical models. Students were introduced to the preliminary online platform showcasing S2P3 outputs.
