ATMO-STREET for Urban Air Quality
The ATMO-Street model can be used to derive historic maps but can also be applied in scenario mode to analysis the impact op policy scenarios.
- An intelligent interpolation model (RIO) for regional pollution levels is combined with a Gaussian dispersion model (IFDM) and a street canyon model (OSPM) to capture the different scales and sources influencing urban air quality.
- ATMO-Street handles emissions of all relevant sectors (e.g. road transport, shipping, air traffic, industry, residential and agriculture).
- The high-resolution maps are used to assess compliance with ambient AQ limits, identify hotspots for mitigation actions and provide insights into the geographical variation of air quality across a region or city.
