CALIOPE EU provides 48-hour Air Quality forecast over Europe for the main air pollutants: ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5).
This application uses your mobile device's geolocation service to show the Air Quality forecast for the nearest stations by using five categories: good, acceptable, poor, bad and very bad.
CALIOPE EU is aimed at anyone interested in the state of Air Quality, either because they are susceptible to cardiac diseases, have young children, make outdoor sports or because they simply are concerned about the air they breathe.
The information provided by CALIOPE EU is part of the daily forecast generated by the System Forecast Air Quality CALIOPE (www.bsc.es/caliope), which is executed in the MareNostrum III Supercomputer at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center - National Center for Supercomputing.
Data from up-to-date observations is received from the European environment information and observation network (EIONET):European Environment Agency (EEA) (http://www.eionet.europa.eu/aqportal)
This application has been funded by the European Comission MYGEOSS project.
