Through the collaboration of academia, technology, and urban planning, the Dublin PortAIR project is a comprehensive effort to assess and mitigate air pollution originating from Dublin Port. In his new video, Prof. John Wenger delves into the science and strategies behind this groundbreaking project, illuminating its synergy with AirScape’s mission.
About Dublin PortAIR Project
The PortAIR project represents a multi-disciplinary approach to combat air pollution, bringing together year-long monitoring, intensive field campaigns, and sophisticated modeling techniques. Focused on the Dublin Port area, a major hub through which 85% of Ireland’s shipping passes, this project aims to furnish key stakeholders with actionable data to create air quality action plans.
By deploying nine robust AirNodes around Dublin Port, we’re capturing real-time, high-resolution air quality data. This information complements the project’s extensive measurement-analysis methodology, adding layers of depth and reach to their research.
“One of the innovative parts of this project is the deployment of a low-cost sensor network …. this gives us a better map of the emissions and pollution around the whole port area. This is an interesting development because it might well be a way of monitoring the port area going forward and I think Dublin Port Company would be interested in the results of this activity”Professor John Wenger, Atmospheric Chemistry, University College Cork
Weathering the Storms
Our technology doesn’t just record data; it defies the elements. Our AirNodes faced their first major test against the fury of Storm Danielle and emerged unscathed, a testament to their resilience.
