Street canyon effects


Air pollution is known to vary significantly across an area. Depending on the prevailing weather conditions at the time of monitoring, the concentrations of pollutant gases can vary from one side of a road to the other, as well as along the road and of course over time. Air modelling software faces many challenges in built up urban environments as the topography makes traditional dispersion algorithms less effective.

AQMesh can provide useful information in these applications. The pods are normally co-located in one position to ensure they are reading the same concentration and then dispersed around the area of interest.
