T his learning has been developed by specialists and experts as one of the main result of the project Green InterTraffic

The main topic: Methods for assessing transport pollution and approaches to reduce the environmental impacts

ACADEMIC CONTENT: The educational course will lead to an understanding of the mechanism of the influence of pollutant emissions on climate formation and possible approaches to modeling atmospheric transport of pollution from road transport.

Specific examples will show how to obtain estimates of greenhouse gas emissions and other air emissions from intertraffic into the atmosphere. Particular consideration will be given to assessing the impact of road transport on air quality, and WHO guidance documents on air quality will be presented.

Special attention will be paid to weather conditions and their impact on transport and environmental safety. Methods of meteorological observations on highways and weather forecasting for highways will be considered. The course contains examples of organizing meteorological observations and weather forecasting to increase traffic safety on the E-18 highway.

Students will become familiar with the equipment of stationary and mobile lidar complexes designed for the operational determination of atmospheric aerosols.

The aim of the LEARNING:

  • Be able to explain the importance of taking into account the influence of meteorological factors on the spread of air pollution
  • familiar with modeling the spread of anthropogenic pollution based on the method of turbulent diffusion and with using of a statistical model
  • to estimate the volume of emissions from automobile transport by calculation methods
  • be able to use meteorological observations and special road weather forecasts to organize the safety intertraffic
  • be able to use GIS tools developed in the framework of the project.
E ducational course consists of the 8 lessons which are presented by video lectures and training materials. Each lessons offers videolectures, training materials and materials for self-study. At the end of the lesson, complete a small task or answer questions to consolidate the material covered.

A positive test result is more than 50% of the correct answers for each lesson.

Students who successfully complete the training receive the Certificate.
