Primary objectives

  • Provide air pollution data on the local scale for all of Norway and in Chinese megacities, for population alerts and to support policy decisions on emission reduction measures
  • provide population exposure assessments on the local scale to enable health impact assessment
  • increase the dialogue between scientists, health experts and policy makers on matters regarding air pollution
  • strengthen collaboration between Norway and China in air pollution research, which has received considerable attention in recent years.


Secondary objectives

  • Collect relevant data in Norway and China to enable downscaling of regional air quality models to the local scale
  • develop and implement a novel method to downscale regional air pollution data to the local scale, using satellite and other sources of proxy data
  • improve regional operational air quality forecasts provided by EMEP in Europe and China
  • improve source allocation calculations for air pollution episodes.
