University of Žilina has been measuring air pollution from road transport in the functional urban areas of the city of Žilina. The methodology of measurements has been established and technological background has been ensured. At present, the measurements have been performed at 5 monitoring stations and the measured values are being evaluated.

UNIFORM APPROACH TO THE AIR POLLUTION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR FUNCTIONAL URBAN AREAS IN TRITIA REGION / AIR TRITIA
Air quality in excessively polluted areas is still managed at local level. At the same time, air pollution is a specific issue with its cross-boundary overrun so that it cannot be effectively managed only at the national or regional level. AIR TRITIA aims to increase air quality management capacities of public sector bodies through the development of a unified spatial information database, introducing new management and pollution prediction tools and air quality strategies.
The common cooperation approach to air quality management at the level of functional urban areas will be based on detailed mathematical modelling and verification of various types of measurements with the use of supercomputers. The project will also define options for transmitting information within different territories, define measures for the reduction of emissions and elaborate legislative proposals for a more efficient implementation of an integrated strategy for air quality management at the territorial level.
Current state review (studies, projects, legislation). Current state studies (socioeconomics, epidemiology). 8 spatial databases gathering information among 3 nations. Processing of spatial data (GIS). Mathematic models. Traffic measurements, isotopes measurements & moss analysis.
