It is obvious that traffic has effects on the environment. Cars use fuel, produce noise and emit toxic gasses. Not to mention the space they take and the impact they have on the climate change issue. Until now, factors for emission for cars are used to determine the effects of traffic. The research question: is there a better way to determine these effects and can measurements with satellites be used for this? Another question is how traffic management can be used to improve environmental conditions.
