Research on the Prediction of Wildfire-Induced Air Pollution

Apostolos Voulgarakis, Associate Professor with the School of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at the Technical University of Crete, holder of the AXA Chair on Wildfires and Climate Change at TUC and Associate/Founding Director at the Leverhulme Centre for Wildfires, Environment and Society in London, discusses why a large amount of wildfire-induced air pollution in Greece might end up above the Mediterranean Sea, what the impacts on the environment and man are, and what the models used globally for the prediction and simulation of air pollution are.

"Climate change aggravates wildfire-caused air pollution" cites Mr. Voulgarakis, who also leads the National Network for Climate Change and Its Impact (CLIMPACT), where research is being undertaken to understand the effect of Climate Change on the future of wildfires in Greece.

You can read the whole article on Kathimerini newspaper (in Greek) or at the source news agency AMNA (in Greek) and you can watch a recent interview of Mr. Voulgarakis on Nea TV Crete (in Greek).
