Calibrating ship emissions with AIS data and field measurements. The case of Port of Barcelona
Type of activity
International Association of Maritime Universities
The main goal is to explore correlation between ship traffic at the vicinity of a harbour and air quality using Automatic Identification System (AIS) data and real air quality measurements during the approach, maneuvering and hotelling of ships. The Port of Barcelona will be used as a “proof-of-concept”, but the methodologies and the main findings may be used elsewhere.
