New Building for the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements
Construction has recently started on a new building to house the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurement, on the campus of Cranfield University. NERC and Cranfield University have jointly funded a new building to be shared between the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) and the Cranfield University School for Environmental Technology. The building will be used to house the FAAM staff, relevant DFL staff and visitors, there will also be space for meetings and flight planning.
Air Quality Forecast
The NCAS Air Quality Forecast (AQF) system is a research tool used by the scientific community interested in the prediction of air quality related pollutant species over the UK. It provides a three day forecast of Ozone (O3), Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and Particulate Matter (PM2.5)
The NCAS AQF system, is operated by the Centre of Atmospheric and Instrumentation Research, University of Hertfordshire and the forecasts are publicly available. Please note that DEFRA operate the official air quality forecast system for public information in the UK.
