VIenna horizontal aNd vertical Distribution OBservations Of Nitrogen dioxide and Aerosols
- The overall goal of the project is to improve our current knowledge of air pollution in large agglomerations caused by mankind.
- The investigation of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and aerosol amounts will be
based on spectral measurements from three Multi AXis Differential
Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (MAX-DOAS) instruments located at three
different sites with ideal measurement conditions in Vienna, Austria.
- The MAX-DOAS instrument allows for measurements at different viewing
directions and thus, it can be used for obtaining both the horizontal
and vertical variations of trace gases and aerosols in the troposphere –
useful measurements for quantifying air pollution.
