Air quality monitoring
It is well known that Particulate Matter (PM), harmful gases/aerosols or other pollutants due to natural or anthropogenic sources can have adverse effects on humans and the ecosystem.
Therefore, in the last years, surveying large regions of the atmosphere in an automatic way has become a strategic objective of various public health organizations for early detection of pollutant sources in urban and industrial areas.
The AAMS solutions have become a well-established method based on the combination of a photometer and a LiDAR for the remote sensing of the atmosphere.
They are often implemented to probe almost any level of the atmosphere and to acquire information to validate theoretical models about different topics of atmospheric physics. They can also be used for environment surveying by monitoring particles, aerosols and molecules.
