ABSTRACT Optimization of the locations of air quality monitoring stations has great importance in providing high-quality data for regional air pollution monitoring. To assess the representativeness of the locations of the current air quality monitoring stations, we propose a new method based on satellite observations by applying the stratified sampling approach. Unlike the traditional method, which relies on the simulated spatial distribution of air pollutants from dispersion models, we… 
Evaluation of Ambient Air Quality Monitoring System in Jakarta: A Literatur Review
As the first step to air pollution control and public health protection, Air quality monitoring systems provides information that indicate the extend of pollution in an area, the source of pollution
A proposed population-health based metric for evaluating representativeness of air quality monitoring in cities: Using Hong Kong as a demonstration
A population-health based metric, the proposed PHNI, is useful to compare the health risk representativeness of AQM for individual and multiple pollutants and can be used to compared the effectiveness of AQm across cities.
Global-Scale Patterns and Trends in Tropospheric NO2 Concentrations, 2005-2018
The results show that there was statistically significant agreement between the satellite-based and ground-based datasets, and it was found that the year 2008 had the highest number of significant breakpoints, out of which almost all were negative (Less).
Long-term ambient SO2 concentration and its exposure risk across China inferred from OMI observations from 2005 to 2018
Abstract Long-term trends in the ambient SO2 concentrations across China from 2005 to 2018 were estimated using Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) SO2 columns and an atmospheric SO2 profile simulated
An Overview of the Science Performances and Calibration/Validation of Joint Polar Satellite System Operational Products
An overview of the JPSS product suite, the performance metrics achieved for the S-NPP, and the utilization of the products by NOAA stakeholders and user agencies worldwide is presented.


Multi-objective optimization of air quality monitoring
A new method for multi-objective optimization of air quality monitoring systems based on satellite remote sensing of the troposphere based on atmospheric turbidity as surrogate for air pollution loading is described in this work.
Performance assessment of air quality monitoring networks using principal component analysis and clu
Abstract This study aims to evaluate the performance of two statistical methods, principal component analysis and cluster analysis, for the management of air quality monitoring network of Hong Kong
Representativeness of air quality monitoring networks
The suitability of European networks to check compliance with air quality standards and to assess exposure of the population was investigated. An air quality model (URBIS) was applied to estimate and

A GIS-based, multi-objective assessment approach that integrates environmental, economic, and social indicators, and demonstrates its use through assessing the O3 and PM10 monitoring networks in the Phoenix metropolitan area is demonstrated.
Assessment of human health impact from PM10 exposure in China based on satellite observations
Abstract. Assessment of human health impact from the exposure to PM10 air pollution is crucial for evaluating environmental damage. We established an empirical model to estimate ground PM10 mass
Assessment of human health impact from exposure to multiple air pollutants in China based on satellite observations
It was indicated that the remote sensing data have advantages over in-situ data in accessing human health impact caused by air pollution in China using an aggregated health risks index.
Establishing an air pollution monitoring network for intra-urban population exposure assessment: A location-allocation approach
Abstract This study addresses two objectives: (1) to develop a formal method of optimally locating a dense network of air pollution monitoring stations; and (2) to derive an exposure assessment model
Assessment of parameters describing representativeness of air quality in-situ measurement sites
Abstract. The atmospheric layer closest to the ground is strongly influenced by variable surface fluxes (emissions, surface deposition) and can therefore be very heterogeneous. In order to perform
Recommendations on the Use of Satellite Remote-Sensing Data for Urban Air Quality
An assessment of the integrated use of ground-based and satellite data for air quality monitoring, including several short case studies, was conducted and identified current U.S. satellites with potential forAir quality applications.
Using satellite remote sensing data to estimate the high-resolution distribution of ground-level PM2.5
Although ground-level monitoring can provide accurate PM2.5 measurements, it has limited spatial coverage and resolution. In contrast, satellite-based monitoring can provide aerosol optical depth
