Abstract

Different programmes related to air quality risk management and emergency situations are currently in operation at European level. Intensive research is currently in operation related to integration of air quality and air quality and meteorological observational networks to provide efficient, robust and confident air quality forecasts for emergency and risk assessment situations. Different EU programmes are currently ongoing with several objectives into such integration. The GMES programme is focusing on Global Monitoring for Environment and Security. This programme is supported by European Space Agency and EU Commission (FP6 EU Programme). Also a specific programme supported by EU into the 6th Framework Programme and in the area of Information Technologies is supporting several projects focusing on Risk & Management on Environmental Issues. In this contribution we will show the results of integration of new telecommunication technologies (mobile technologies, SMS, GPRS, 3G-UMTS, WAP, etc.) to produce integrated air quality services for the citizen and also for environmental authorities.
