LIFE EMERALD (Emissions Modelling and Forecasting of Air in Ireland) is a 3-year project which is part funded by the European Commission LIFE funding program.
The aim of this program is to ensure that Air Quality information is of a high standard and available to both the public and policy makers in Ireland. This will support informed day-to-day decision making of Irish citizens which can positively impact their health and help to raise awareness around the topic of Irish Air Quality.
The LIFE EMERALD project will also improve Ireland’s ambient air quality management capabilities, by using an air quality modelling system to gain a better understanding of the factors contributing to poor air quality and develop a system that will provide better information to the public.
The project is expected to deliver 3-day ambient air quality forecasting, real time air quality maps and annual air pollutant maps.
