5708.4 - Determination of air quality in Ukraine based on remote sensing data for sustainability

Location: Maryland C

Monitoring of environmental pollution by the methods of remote sensing of the Earth is actual area of research for sustainable development. Ukraine has a poor-ly developed network of monitoring stations for air quality, the technical condi-tion of which is deteriorating in recent years. Therefore, the possibility of obtaining data about the condition of air by remote sensing methods is of great importance. The paper considers the possibility of using the data about condition of atmos-phere of the project AERONET to assess the air quality in Ukraine. The main pol-lution indicators were used data on particles PM2.5 and NO2 content in the at-mosphere. The main indicator of air quality in Ukraine is the air pollution index (API). We have built regression models the relationship between indicators of NO2, which are measured by remote sensing methods and ground-based meas-urements of indicators. There have also been built regression models, the relation-ship between the data given to the land of NO2 and API. To simulate the relation-ship between the API and PM2.5 were used geographically weighted regression model, which allows to take into account the territorial differentiation between these indicators. As a result, the maps that show the distribution of the main types of pollution in the territory of Ukraine, were constructed. PM2.5 data modeling is complicated with using existing indicators, which requires a separate organization observation network for PM2.5 content in the atmosphere for sustainable devel-opment in Ukraine.
