LIFE+RESPIRA

Life+Respira is a project aimed at showing that through the use of new technologies, along with urban planning and management, like promoting sustainable mobility and bicycle use, it is possible to improve air quality and reduce air pollution. The project has the added benefits included in socially implying members of the community; some of the actions will be based on the help provided by a team of volunteer cyclists. This way citizens will become the driving force and main beneficiaries of the results.

All the steps proposed in the project are directly related to the improvement of air quality, urban environment and health.


Ecological Modeling

Ecological Modeling

This vLab comprises of two online coupled models, which are parameterised and initialised for the specific conditions at a few specifically identified areas for which the required datasets exist. In an attempt to make the tool user friendly a graphic user interface (GUI) developed in the course of previous projects will be used. The GUI allows the user to view model results dynamically through any internet browser. Model results will be stored at the HCMR servers and the user will be able to select the area, scenario, and parameter required, which will then be returned as results in the form of plots. All model parameters and options will be available to the user online. The ultimate operation, therefore, of this vLab will be to allow the user to submit a request for the model to run under a different scenario than those already available.

Bird behaviour analyses

VL-BMM is being developed by SURFsara Computing & Networking Services and the Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics of the University of Amsterdam. It is a e-Science infrastructure for controlling the tracking system, downloading the data, uploading new measurement schemes, persistent storing of the data and exploring or analysing the measurements of the UvA-BiTS.  The bird data are integrated with environmental data such as meteorological conditions (ECMWF) or sea currents (Delft3D).
