Clean Air vs. Polluted Air: How much, Where at, Why?

In the developing countries, the monitoring of air pollution is limited, due to limited capacity, supply of equipment, technical training, etc etc. Still, we manage the address the air pollution issues, with what is available. Same can be achieved and enhanced by combining the modeling efforts to forecast and validate air pollution in real time and support the compliance/regulation duties, along with some decision making support.

World Meteorological Organization (WMO) offered a course on air quality forecasting at Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorological (Pune, India) between December 8-12.

Course material includes training on the modeling tools (WRF-Chem) and 101 lectures on various components of air pollution modeling.

Material for a similar course in Lima, Peru (June, 2006)
