activitats_professorat_csic_2015-2016_Page_1
What pollutants do we inhale in the city? Do they have health effects? This course aims to approach the current research in air pollution, held at the Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (CSIC), in particular by the project AIRUSE LIFE11 ENV/ES/584, and to present the main urban air pollutants, their origin, effects on health and possible solutions to improve the quality of the air we breathe. Pollution and city are inseparable, something that inhabitants of large cities know and suffer greatly, since industrialization. Currently, it has become a priority area of ​​research due to the risk on the development of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.

The course will have a practical part in which participants will visit the facilities, handle equipment and check closely the quality of the air we breathe.

We invite you to participate in the survey on air quality AIRUSE website and learn more about the project through our informative video.
