Google donated two Project Air View cars to Utrecht University a year ago. With these ‘Air View’ cars, the quality of air in cities can be mapped down to street level. Jules Kerckhoffs of Utrecht University coordinates these projects and is responsible for processing the data. He talks about his experiences.
How clean is the air at the locations visited by La Vuelta? Researchers from Utrecht University mapped the air quality of all stages.
The first Exposome-NL conference, titled ‘Exposome and Preventive Health: tackling complexity’, took place on Friday 20 May 2022 in Utrecht. With almost 200 participants, several outstanding talks by international exposome researchers, a poster session and a broad set of break-out sessions, we look back on a vibrant and inspiring day.
In celebration of EU Green Week, Google Project Air View, in collaboration with the City of Copenhagen, Utrecht University and Aarhus University, shares a new air quality map for Copenhagen, which citizens can also study. The new measurements of air pollution show that the pollution with the so-called ultrafine particles is worst on streets with a lot of car traffic.
