The analysis of airborne particulate matter is a very high profile concern since it has been proved that exposure to such particles can badly affect human health.
Pollutants can be transported far away from their source, LIDAR devices survey large regions of the atmosphere, retrieving PM space-time distribution and providing valid help in identifying the sources.
ALA mission is an ongoing process based on a very strong connection between research and technological development. At ALA we have the goal to make compact, transportable, easy to use but really accurate LIDAR devices and to make available its experience for measurement campaign.
ALA develops compact LIDAR systems and offer custom solution for atmospheric remote sensing and air quality monitoring.
ALA designs and produce most of the electronics managing its LIDAR systems and offert customizable solutions.
ALA develops user-friendly software to manage LIDAR systems and acquire and analize their data.
ALA, along with the devolopment lidar-based systems, provides high-end services based on them, like measurement campaigns and data analysis for air quality monitoring and control.
INTERNATIONAL MEASUREMENT CAMPAIGN IN THE FRAMEWORK OF ACTRIS-2
The so called Monte Cimone ACTRIS2 JRA1 campaign, organized by CNR-ISAC, took place in three different sites near the Italian city Bologna. The goal was the evaluation of the processes affecting the black carbon variability.
The campaign took place in the Actris-2 CIAO infrastructure in Potenza, Italy. The main goal was to compare and calibrate ALA system REAL-VIS owned by the China Admnistration Agency (CMA) with the LIDAR system MUSA operating at CIAO, one of the reference ACTRIS/EARLINET and part of the ACTRIS Lidar Calibration Centre – LiCal).
Multidisciplinary measurement campaigns organized by the Italian municipality of Pomigliano d'Arco-Naples
The measurement campaign (a collaboration with ALA, the Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II and CeSMA) took place in three different sites in the city of Pomigliano d’Arco, near Naples. The goal was investigating how urban activities affect the PM concentration.
Investigation organized by Campania Region, in ITAly
The measurement campaign had the goal to investigate and characterize particulate matter emissions produced by landfill sites. A collaboration with the Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II and CeSMA.
