ATMOSYS is a suite  of air quality management software tools and web apps created specifically to support the implementation of air quality legislation and policies at a regional and urban scale.  It comprises of cost efficient user friendly tools for predicting air quality episodes , mapping air quality at a high spatial resolution and supporting decisions on where, when and how actions should be taken to improve air quality (planning).

ATMOSYS Planning

ATMOSYS Planning is a user friendly web based decision support tool, designed to facilitate the assessment of the impact of emission reduction scenarios on air quality on an urban scale at a high spatial resolution.  ATMOSYS Planning can be implemented in a regional or local administration:

  1. To support the implementation of air quality actions plans,
  2. As a standard tool to harmonise air quality impact assessments required for environmental permits.


The main characteristics are:

  • Allows the evaluation of changes in road transport and industrial emissions.
  • The user does not require extensive modelling expertise to use the software.
  • The key inputs required is local scale emission data.
  • The software includes the latest regional meteo and background concentration data supplied by CAMS and ECMWF.
  • The software can be tailored for specific assessment processes e.g. environmental permit processes and/or Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA)
  • Default data and emission mitigation options can be ‘predefined’ into the configuration. 
  • Offers significant operational and administrative cost savings. 


QUARK (Quick Urban AiR quality using Kernels) is a modelling approach developed for the fast calculation of urban air quality assessments at a high spatial resolution.  Suitable for source apportionment studies and performing emission reduction scenarios on an EU scale at a high spatial resolution. 

  • Allows the evaluation of road transport related sources.
  • Can be tailored for other source sector contributions.  
  • The methodology was recently refined within a service contract for the European Commission, where the aim was to come up with improved tools for EU-wide NO2 exposure assessment.
