Project

Hialine : Health Impacts of Airborne ALergen Information NEtwork

Description:

The goal of the Hialine project is to evaluate the effects of climate diversity and change on airborne allergen exposure, and to implement an outdoor allergen early warning network. Climatic factors that influence allergen exposure will be extracted and will be used to calculate the effect of climate and climate change on local airborne allergen exposure. We focus on airborne allergens, climate change and climate diversity, and an early warning system (allergen forecast).
The project has resulted (a.o) in the website 'pollen diary', which allows users to record their daily allergy symptoms, to compare this information with the actual pollen load of the main allergenic plants later.
