Project

Influence of local emission sources at the spatial and temporal distribution of ultrafine particles (2017-2019)

Study objective:
Due to this lack of the spatial and temporal distribution within an urban area, UFP were measured source-related, which means measurements with source attribution studies, in the city of Augsburg throughout the year (2017). First, the measurement data is subjected to quality assurance. Thereafter, analyses regarding the spatial as well as temporal distribution patterns together with meteorological influences are carried out and supplemented by relevant additional air pollutant measurements (PM2.5, PM10, nitrous gases, ozone) at the LÜB- (Lufthygienisches Landesüberwachungssystem Bayern) stations.
