Utilising Openair to support multi-stakeholder engagement and the resolution of air quality issues (2013)
Journal Article
Hayes, E. T., Chatterton, T., Barnes, J., & Longhurst, J. (2013). Utilising Openair to support multi-stakeholder engagement and the resolution of air quality issues. Clean Air Journal, 23(1), 23-31

For key stakeholders to make informed air quality management decisions it is often necessary for in-depth data analysis to be tailored and concisely presented to meet their needs. Given the complexity of sources, the abundance of relevant data (e.g.... Read More about Utilising Openair to support multi-stakeholder engagement and the resolution of air quality issues.

Air quality action planning: why do barriers to remediation in local air quality management remain? (2013)
Journal Article
