Air quality modeling system

Recently, Techne Consulting released to the Sardinia Region, within the project “Update of air quality monitoring network and of air emission sources” (PO FESR 2007-2013– Target operativo 4.1.2. – Activity 4.1.2A), a complete integrated modeling system for regional air pollution forecasting.

The system in modality “daily forecast” permits the forecast of air pollution on the regional territory, for the main pollutants subject to legislative rules, processing the evaluation of pollutant concentrations for the next day. The system is performed every day.

Beside this, it is also possible to use the system with modality “evaluation on request” in order to study the effect of emission mitigation measures able to improve air quality and provide a decisional support in the study of potential impacts of existing and future emission sources on the regional territory.
