EUROCHAMP-2020



EUROCHAMP-2020 aims at further integrating the most advanced European atmospheric simulation chambers into a world-class infrastructure for research and innovation. The project is composed by a coordinated set of networking activities, which deliver improved chamber operability across the infrastructure, as well as standard protocols for data generation and analysis. Trans-national access is provided to sixteen different chambers and four calibration centres, becoming the core of the project. Joint research activities enhance the capability of the infrastructure to provide improved services for users. Cooperation with the private sector a fundamental pillar of the project, and it is necessary to exploit the innovation potential of the infrastructure by supporting development of scientific instruments, sensor technologies and de-polluting materials. Overall, EUROCHAMP-2020 has the goal to significantly enhance the capacity for exploring atmospheric processes and ensure that Europe retains its place in atmospheric simulation chamber research.

ACTRIS-IT is closely monitoring air composition during COVID-19 lockdown - Tuesday, March 31, 2020

ACTRIS-Italy is collecting parallel measurements of atmospheric composition at different altitudes and urbanization contexts in Northern Italy.

According to first analyses, surface concentration of NO2 have decreased in northern Italy of about 10% per week during the last four or five weeks. The concentrations of another major air pollutant, the particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5), have declined too but with large day-to-day variations. Find more information here
