The six REACT stations have been installed near one of the Venetian ARPAV monitoring station.

This first step will allow Italian scientists from Ca’ Foscari to test the instruments and to validate the correct functioning of the installed sensors. During the next testing month, the six monitoring stations will register lots of information about the environmental conditions: atmospheric pollutants (PM 1, PM 2,5, PM 10), the ambient noise, the nitrogen dioxide and the sulfur dioxide. Other important measurements will be about the wind speed and direction, humidity and temperature.

All those information will be crucial for the REACT project: after the first testing step, units will be ready to be installed in various places in Venice.
