Versione italiano English version

PMetro is a novel approach to characterize urban particulate matter, which exploits a mobile platform integrated on a Minimetro cabin and combines real time measurements with the data from the local Environmental Protection Agency (ARPA).


The project main focus is the study of urban pollution dynamics, with a particular attention to vehicular traffic and generated aerosols. Techniques at work include fast pollutants and micrometeorology monitors based both on fixed and mobile stations as well as advanced statistical treatments of the data. The audience includes government policy-makers, media, environmental and health professionals, healthcare providers, the public, and vulnerable populations.
