City-level air quality management in Gibraltar

The Government of Gibraltar required an air quality management solution that ensures it meets exacting requirements of European air-quality legislation.

Working with the Gibraltar Environmental Agency, Ricardo has developed a comprehensive air quality management system for Gibraltar that includes a combination of local air quality measurements, air quality modelling and policy development support. MODUS is the centrepiece of the measurement solution delivering high-quality data in near real-time, insightful data analysis and interpretation, and live data dissemination via a state-of-the-art website (www.gibraltarairquality.gi).

MODUS has played an integral part in building a high-quality evidence base of air pollution in Gibraltar. The quality assured data have helped to clarify how different activities have contributed to concentrations of air pollutants, which has helped to inform the development of air quality policy for Gibraltar.
