New 'pollution radar' developed to provide unprecedented picture of urban smog
...with five-minute time resolution. This is achieved by the simultaneous analysis of scattered solar UV/Visible radiation from multiple instruments and multi
viewing geometries, giving an unprecedented level of information on the dynamics and composition of the urban environment.
