The analysis of airborne PM is a very high-profile concern for municipalities in the Campania region of Italy. An extended study has been conducted in the Municipalities of Pomigliano d'Arco, S. Vitaliano and S. Tammaro. The measurements were carried out with both traditional and innovative methods (Microjoule POrtable LIdar System realized by ALA srl). The results are shown for comparison purposes as well as for confirming the validity of the LIDAR technique. The study highlights how optical remote sensing helps determining the pollutants source location and can pave the road to a new air quality monitoring system.
