Amongst the presentations At the Northern Air Quality Conference was a double-header by  Amber Titchener, the Air Quality Officer at Southampton City Council, and Pablo Garcia, Senior Air Quality modeller at EarthSense.

The two had worked together in a fascinating dive into domestic wood burning in the area. Pablo talked to us about the science behind the project while Amber addressed the policy.

A network of 18 sensors were installed around residential areas to gather localised monitoring, with Earthsense’s MappAir technology giving a near real-time, high-resolution air quality model which provided visualisations of woodburning emissions.

Amber also talks about the Council’s award winning campaign against domestic wood-burning which was based on four main messages: ‘burn less, burn cleaner, burn better, burn different’ – a soft approach rather than one that is enforcement based.
