Norwegian Institute for Air Research

The Norwegian Institute for Air Research is involved in a wide range of applied research activities relating to air quality. Of most relevance to UncertWeb are the activities concerning urban scale air quality modelling and the development and application of data assimilation methods. Currently NILU carries out air quality forecasts for a number of Norwegian cities and provides near real time access to air quality monitoring data.

Bruce Denby

Dr Bruce Rolstad Denby is a senior researcher at the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) and is leader for work package 6 in UncertWeb. He is chiefly involved in air quality modelling and assessment, source apportionment, data assimilation and spatial statistical activities. He is interested in the question of uncertainty in air quality modelling and promotes its estimation and its communication actively.
