Balon Widokowy – one of the most recognisable tourist attraction in Krakow turned into flying Atmospheric Laboratory, conducting research aimed at air pollution analysis.

Uniqness of our measurments consists of:

  • probing pollution in vertical profiles, which allows to analyse particulate matter concentration on different levels. Maximum balloon attitude is 285m – that allows for example studying inversion layer over Krakow – which disallows polluted air weathering.
  • High intesity of probing. During each viewing/tourist flight instruments inside balloon’s gondola measure air quality. We have already obtained thousands of air pollution vertical profiles.

Research results are binded to current meteorogical conditions, such as wind speed and direction, temperature and atmospheric pressure.

Below, we present information according aforementioned research.
