ACTRIS-2

Air pollution of the Po Valley plain visible from Mt Cimone

On Monday, July 3, an international campaign has been launched under the European project ACTRIS-2, which until July 28 will provide ongoing information on an important component of air pollution: Black Carbon (BC). BC is considered to be a dangerous pollutant and climate forcer compound, in fact it is harmful to health and is associated with an increase in premature deaths in cities and also has a heating power that may be regionally similar to that of carbon dioxide.
