Leicester air quality, as modelled at the University of Leicester using the Airviro model.

Welcome to the Webpages of the
Air Quality Group at the University of Leicester

With over 50% of the world's population now living in urbanised environments, there is a strong motivation to understand and manage our towns and cities to ensure the best posssible health for citizens. This sub-group undertakes research into instrumentation and techniques to improve our understanding of the emissions, chemistry and dynamics within the urban environment, with a focus on application through improved urban management systems.
