AIR_POLLUTION_Onto: an Ontology for Air Pollution Analysis and Control

  • Mihaela M. Oprea
Part of the IFIP International Federation for Information Processing book series (IFIPAICT, volume 296)


The paper describes an ontology for air pollution analysis and control, AIR_POLLUTION_Onto, and presents its use in two case studies, an expert system, and a multiagent system, both dedicated to monitoring and control of air pollution in urban regions.
