An Edge Hill academic has been awarded funding by the Royal Society for a fantastic project to develop new ways of monitoring air pollution.

Paul Aplin

Paul Aplin, Professor of Geography at Edge Hill University, has been awarded a Royal Society-Newton Mobility Grant, part of the Newton Fund, to help develop new methods and tools for monitoring aerosol pollution in the atmosphere.

The new tools being developed will use remote sensing techniques and satellite-collected data at much higher spatial resolutions than are currently used, increasing the accuracy with which we can estimate aerosol presence and its negative effects.
