BORA in Ostrava region will determine air pollution sources

ČHMÚ Ostrava started a project to answer a still open question: „What is the real share of air pollution of local industry, municipal heating, transport, pollution import from Poland and other sources?”

The project will focus on benzo[a]pyrene and particulate matter pollution. To solve that there will be eight measuring stations established. Based on meteo conditions and modern math modelling tools (receptor model PMF) we acquire aggregate yearly assessment of air quality. The answer to basic project question shall be available in the second half of the year 2022.
