The UncertWeb project, aims at managing the propagation of uncertainty, when integrating multiple resources, mainly models or data that are exposed as web services, into complex model workflows.


Aerosols are minute particles suspended in the atmosphere which have a strong influence on air quality, since they scatter and absorb solar radiation, changing the Earth radiation balance and consequently global temperature patterns. Additionally, as they act as cloud condensation nuclei, they are also influencing precipitation trends.


The aim of NATAIR is to improve the accuracy of the data analysing and calculation methods from natural and biogenic emissions and to assess their impact on air pollutant concentration levels and deposition loads in Europe. The projects has developed datasets for modelling on concentration levels from anthropogenic (e.g. combustion processes) and natural (and biogenic) sources.


Volcanic gas emissions, together with geology related data such as seismic activity, are important indicators in the volcanic risk assessment procedure for natural disaster management. In the project Network for Observation of Volcanic and Atmospheric Change – NOVAC, a global metrology network of stations for measurements of gas emissions and air pollution monitoring from volcanoes was established.


ESCAPE is a project that aims to quantify the health impacts of air pollution and reduce the uncertainty of its effect on conditions such as cancer, respiratory diseases, perinatal conditions, child asthma, etc. The consortium has been working towards identifying and investigating the long-term effects on human health, as it relates to exposure to air pollution in Europe.
