The Geoscience & Remote Sensing (GRS) department of TU Delft, the TU Delft Climate institute and he Royal Netherlands Meteorological institute KNMI are pleased to invite you to the seminar Urban Air Quality, to be held at the TU Delft Theaterzaal (Sports & Culture) on Friday afternoon 17th February 2017.
Human activities, including industry, traffic, energy generation and food production, have an adverse impact on air quality. This is especially the case in urban areas, where more than half of the world populations lives. Ground based and satellite observations show that policies to reduce the emissions of pollutants are successful in improving air quality. However, is enough done to protect the health of the people in the cities and what can cities in developing countries learn from these successes?
This symposium will bring together experts in the field of health effects, policy, emission monitoring, ground based observations and satellite remote sensing. It targets a broad audience from students in diverse topics, public, industries, policy makers and researchers. In addition to presentations, there will be possibilities for interactive discussions with the speakers.
