Evidence and Data
Greenwich air monitoring
- We have installed a number of continuous air pollution monitors near Greenwich Ship Tier recording which will allow us to assess the impact of short-term, local river activity on air quality in the area, including cruise visits to the area. This project is in partnership with Breathe London, RB Greenwich and LB Tower Hamlets. View this data live here:
Diffusion tube results and analysis - Coming Soon
- The PLA has been monitoring concentrations of nitrogen dioxide at locations along the Thames from Richmond Lock to Gravesend using diffusion tubes. Click here for an analysis of the results from 2018.
Dispersion modelling - Coming Soon
- King’s College University conducted a modelling study using the results of the PLA’s 2016 Air Quality Inventory to assess the dispersion of air pollutants once they are emitted into the atmosphere. This is integrated into the 2016 London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory which studies emissions from all sources, including road transport and construction activities.
