Poor air quality is the most serious environmental health issue globally and the primary driving force for ambient air quality monitoring. Currently available reference-grade air quality monitoring stations provide accurate data, but the networks are sparse. New technologies make it possible to complement the existing measurements with compact air quality sensors.
Vaisala provides the latest technology for air quality monitoring, as well as measuring atmospheric weather conditions relevant to monitoring, estimating, and forecasting air quality. Vaisala Air Quality solution consists of a network of compact air quality sensors and weather stations, complete with data acquisition and visualization software, as well as optional air quality dispersion modeling.
Ambient air quality measurements are typically made with fixed ground-based air monitoring stations.
Supplementary air quality monitoring enables dense but cost-efficient measurement networks that increase the number of measurement points and improve the access to real-time air quality information.
Weather effects the air quality and air quality effects the weather. The trend is towards micro weather forecasts that can detect fluctuations between different parts of a city.
