3-day forecast of air quality
In cooperation with our long-term partners from Great Britain – CERC (Cambridge Environmental Research Consultants) – we have commenced implementation of “AirText Riga” project. Project, which is financed in the framework of the EU programme Copernicus, foresees development of air quality forecasting system for Riga, which will allow timely (3-days in advance) warning of the city inhabitants and visitors on possible unfavourable conditions for public health: increased air pollution concentrations, pollen concentrations and solar radiation levels. Planned system encompasses not only informative project website, but also early warning system, alarming registered users through SMS, e-mails, and mobile applications.
Similar system has been implemented and successfully operating in London and South-East region of England (Great Britain) – more information available at AirText website: http://www.airtext.info.
