  1. Air quality assessment in the European Mega City Ruhr Area and effects of low emission zones ...

     The Ruhr area is the biggest German megalopolis, a conglomerate of several intertwining major cities, with more than 5.3 million inhabitants. For this region IVU Umwelt has identified the hot spots by a combination of measurements and modelling on behalf of the State Environmental Agency of North Rhine-Westphalia.
    A road network of more than 3000 km in length and with over 8000 inhabited sections was investigated with IMMISluft in order to identify road sections with possibly affected inhabitants. The concentrations are displayed in pollution maps with colors from green, over yellow to red which results in so called "Traffic Light Maps".

  2. IMMISmt in operation in Berlin, Leipziger Strae ...

    The software IMMISmt is used to determine current concentration values based on real-time traffic and meteorological data within the research project "iQ Mobility - Integrated Quality and Mobility Management for Road Traffic in the Berlin Region".
    Currently, analysis of an in situ test at Leipziger Strae is in progress.
