Air Quality and Environmental Noise Technologies

Air Quality and Environmental Noise Technologies Research Group conducts research and development projects on the air quality and environmental noise management, mitigation of and adaptation to climate change, strategies and policies. Owing the TS EN ISO/IEC 17025 standard accreditation certificate since 2002, the research group provides analyses, which need certain requirements, requested by public institutions and organizations as well as the private sectors. In addition, the research group has been given the “Certificate of Proficiency” issued by the Ministry of Environment, Urbanization and Climate Change on the environmental measurements. The research laboratories within the research group provide services on the Acoustic Measurement, Design and Modelling, Analysis and Measurement of Air Pollution and Odor. Activities conducted by the research teams within the group are given below:

Main research areas of the Environmental Noise Management;

  • Developing strategic noise maps and noise action plans
  • Developing noise barrier systems
  • Developing noise monitoring systems
  • Determining the impacts of the noise via transport-sources on health
  • Research on the sound-absorption characteristics of highway pavement materials

Main research areas of the Air Quality Management;

  • Development of low-cost air quality measurement systems for atmospheric pollutants
  • Regional air quality management studies
  • Determination of the transport of air pollutants and their health effects

Main research areas of the Adaptation to Climate Change, Strategy and Policies;

  • Determination of national, regional, local and institutional strategies for adaptation to climate change and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
  • Studies on determining national climate policies
  • Sectoral climate change risk analysis

The research group is composed of 20 experienced researchers and technicians. 60% of the researchers have posses Ph.D. and/or M.Sc. degree.  Having multi-disciplinary structure enables to act and adapt quickly to new conditions, take necessary actions towards new directions, and create a multi-participatory structure when necessary.
