Tehran Comprehensive Air Pollution Forecasting System

Interregional platform for mapping and forecasting of air quality.
Interregional platform APFS (Air Pollution Forecasting System) results from the close collaboration of Fuel, Combustion and Emission (FCE) Research Center, Sharif University of Technology and Air Quality Control Company (AQCC). The objectives of this platform are twofold: Publishing daily information on the meteorology and air quality through mapping and forecasting over Tehran, have a system to study air pollutions scenarios.
