Predicting air quality in Darwin

Predicting air quality in Darwin

Air quality of most large cities is determined by emissions from local traffic, heating and industrial activities. In contrast to this air quality in Darwin and other north Australian cities and towns is determined by emissions from fires in surrounding bush-land.During the late dry season particle concentrations in Darwin often exceed air quality limits.This project will utilise information on bush-fires available in near-real time and air transport modelling to predict air quality in Darwin. Results will be compared to in-situ measurements collected at Charles Darwin University's Casuarina campus.

Lead supervisor: Stefan Maier
