5 Nov 2019Are you interested in doing a PhD investigating air quality using ADMS-Urban?

CERC are supporting a PhD studentship at Nottingham University, which will investigate possible links between poor air quality, long-term illness and social deprivation. The project will explore the changing spatial and temporal distribution of PM2.5 across the City of Nottingham using available monitoring data and CERC's high-resolution urban air quality model, ADMS-Urban. These data will be combined with hospital admissions data and deprivation indices to investigate the links between air pollution and health in more and less deprived parts of the city, looking at both long and short term pollution exposure.

The studentship is awarded by ENVISION, bringing together a powerful group of UK researchers with industry and NGO partners to provide a new generation of environmental scientists with the skills, knowledge and experience they need to take on the challenges of a changing world.

If you are interested in finding out more about this exciting and challenging project, please follow the link provided or contact Professor Sarah Metcalfe, sarah.metcalfe@nottingham.ac.uk or Dr. J. Duncan Whyatt, d.whyatt@lancaster.ac.uk


25 Oct 2019Google Street View cars measure London's air quality in hyperlocal detail

New measurements have been released which provide a unique insight into London's air pollution at a hyperlocal level. Two Google Street View cars equipped with air quality monitors have been taking readings approximately every 30 metres at tens of thousands of locations while they travel through London's streets. The Breathe London website map developed by CERC shows average values of pollution from these readings.

The mobile monitoring routes are sampled at different times of day, days of week and time of year. These readings have been analysed by EDF to provide median concentrations, representing the expected on-road value during weekday daytime hours over the monitoring period between August 2018 and August 2019.

These median values are displayed on a data platform developed by CERC which provides the maps and visualisations for the Breathe London website. The platform uses the Google Cloud, which enables user-friendly performance when querying these large datasets to provide graphs and visualisations, and ensures the replicability and scalability of the platform to other cities around the world. The platform also automatically ingests and displays data from Breathe London's network of one hundred AQMesh sensors.

30 Sep 2019Routes to Clean Air 2019

CERC were pleased to attend the Institute of Air Quality Management's annual Routes to Clean Air conference in London on 16th and 17th September.

The Routes to Clean Air conferences provide an opportunity for air quality, public health and transport professionals to share their experiences of improving air quality, particularly in urban areas. This year featured an excellent selection of talks on a range of topics including improving air quality, low cost sensors, transport emissions and health effects.

CERC, a previous sponsor of the event, were there this year as one of the conference exhibitors. Over the two days we were delighted to talk to many of the delegates about our software and consultancy services.

You can also follow CERC news on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and by RSS.
