Online training course New approaches to air quality data analytics and pollution source assessment for better air quality management

Air quality monitoring, data generation and analytics are critical steps for better air quality management in urban centres. Air quality data analysis, pollution source assessment complemented by public health linkages provide crucial evidence in understanding and identifying key air pollutants, their contribution to hotspot area identification and assessmentand formulating source-specific intervention strategies for air pollution mitigation.

New approaches and techniques such as advanced instrumentations, real-time monitoring, low-cost and cost-effective monitoring and methods, satellite-based air quality monitoring, real-time source apportionment and integrated and dynamic emission inventory are emerging globally. 

This online training course represents our initiative to promote good regulatory practices, enhance knowledge and build capacity on understanding air quality monitoring data analytics and pollution source assessment and deepen understanding within the larger context of air pollution mitigation. 

This fortnight long course is designed for the government officials, practitioners, professionals, consultants, academics, researchers, students etc to understand and build knowledge and insights into the imperative of air quality data and analytics and its linkages to strategies and interventions within the air quality management perspective.
