To address this challenge, AIR-Portal, an Air Quality Dashboard for European cities, was developed. AIR-Portal uses a custom-designed, local Air Quality Model that combines remote sensing, land use, road and local monitoring data into air quality forecasts on city level at a usable level of 100x100 meter resolution throughout target cities. The forecasts can be used in decision making processes for the cities involved and to inform the public about air quality on a local scale. The main space asset used for the service is Earth Observation providing true global coverage to measure atmospheric conditions as well as GNSS to provide the user with locaiton-based air quality information.

It is responsible for more than 450.000 premature deaths in Europe each year. But what can we do about it? Available air quality data are too complex for personal use. Aircheckr brings the solution by creating and opening up the best available air quality data in the EU. The aircheckr data is the result of intensive processing, where existing air quality data is modelled and enriched with weather data, crowdsourced local data and contextual information derived from Earth observation data. Aircheckr is application-driven, geolocation-based and in real time (incl. forecasting and historical component). The data are easily interpretable and also include personal recommendations. Through an API the data are available for developers that can integrate them in different applications (real estate, ventilation automation, health, news and info).

Source: WHO The Nedlaw Living Walls Biofilter was the result of approximately 20 years of research at the University of Guelph. This research started at the Canada Life Environmental Room at the Toronto head office of the Canada Life Assurance. The biofilter appears to be a vertical hydroponic wall with a wide range of tropical foliage. The plant-filled wall is actually a mechanical system integrated into the air control system for the building. Air is actively forced through the wall, where air pollutants like formaldehyde and benzene are biologically degraded into their benign constituents of water and carbon dioxide. The clean air is then distributed throughout the space.

It aims at helping the medical community to better understand the correlations between the direct exposition to atmospheric pollutants and the emergence of epidemiological outbreaks, various pathologies, and admissions in hospitals. The service uses Earth Observation satellites in order to improve and optimize air pollution research and air quality measurements especially in region with limited or non-existent air quality monitoring ground stations. SMEETH supports decision-making towards effective epidemic control and the definition of successful prevention campaigns. The service targets three main segments of users: (i) decision-makers (policy-makers, public bodies, large cities with a mandate for policy-making and law enforcement regarding climate, environment, health, transportation and security matters); (ii) public health resource managers; and (iii) research institutions and academia as well as the pharmaceutical industry. The space assets contributing to SMEETH refer to Earth Observation satellites as air quality data derived from EO satellites can complement in-situ and modelled data in order to add value to the spatial coverage, spatial resolution and accuracy.

In this tense situation, it is important to closely monitor both the natural emissions released by the rainforest (hydrocarbons) and the rapidly changing anthropogenic emissions from agricultural activities (NH3 and NOx) and fossil fuel burning (NOx). By using satellite observations combined with a state-of-the-art model representation of the relevant processes, we develop advanced inversion algorithms for the estimation of emissions of ammonia(NH3), NOx and hydrocarbons, providing both qualitative and quantitative biogenic and anthropogenic emissions. SOLFEO takes advantage of the fine spatial resolution of OMI (AURA), IASI (METOP) and TROPOMI (Sentinel 5p) data to improve emission estimates over a largely understudied region.

The target market for uTRAQ are local authorities of medium to large towns, major urban centres and cities, not only within the UK, but also further afield in both the developed and developing world. Traffic densities are increasing, with improvements in emission rates failing to provide the necessary compensating impact on air quality. Therefore, systems are required to jointly manage traffic flows and air quality in urban environments, to optimise the efficient movement of people and goods, while protecting the health of residents and visitors to major cities. The service concept of uTRAQ is to provide an extension of existing traffic management tools and data streams that are supplemented by EO data in a single user centric system to forecast and mitigate the effects of air quality and congestion on urban centres.

The regional air quality information is important because not all pollution affecting a city actually originates there – studies show that up to half may originate elsewhere. The forecasts include predictions of overall effects on health on an index from one to ten. The YourAir service resolves air pollution down to the scale of individual streets – highest levels are often found along routes with heavy traffic or other pollution sources, so information on street-by-street changes in pollution help vulnerable people make informed choices about their movements. The prototype service covers Central London and Croydon in South London, which is one of the city's largest boroughs by area and the largest by population, with 330 000 inhabitants.
