Scientists of the Viet Nam National University’s technology university have successfully developed an air pollution management system using satellite photos.
Dr Nguyen Thi Nhat Thanh, from the research team, said Vietnam had not been able to control the increasing volume of emissions from industrial production, transport, construction and rapid urbanisation.
The level of dust nationwide is measured by only six automatic observation stations managed by the Environment General Department, she said, adding that an air pollution warning system was urgently needed.
