SYLVA, A SYstem for reaL-time obserVation of Aeroallergens

SYLVA (A SYstem for reaL-time obserVation of Aeroallergens) started at the first of januari 2023 and will run until december 2026. It builds upon the experience from the AUTOPOLLEN project (2018-2022). A few questions for Mikhail Sovief, coördinator of SYLVA: For allergy, it is well known that reactions are much faster than one day. Peaks, […]

Copernicus: First automated pollen measurements allow cross-checking forecasts in several European countries in near-real-time

The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) today announces the first step in a joint initiative with the European Aeroallergen Network (EAN) to automated pollen monitoring in several European countries. Under the auspices of the Network of European National Meteorological Services (EUMETNET), various pollen monitoring sites have been equipped with automated observation capability as part of the “Autopollen” […]

New website

The aim of the Pollen Science website is to collect and graphically display the data of different measuring networks and stations for pollen flight in a database. This makes it easy and interactive to determine when and how many pollens of the different species are currently measured in the air or when they have been […]


Pan-European initiative to provide pollen forecasts based on near real-time observations

The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring service (CAMS) recently formed a new partnership with the European Aeroallergen Network (EAN,) and will explore ground breaking technology to deliver automatic pollen observations in near real-time across Europe. Every year during spring and early summer comes a chorus of sneezing, wheezing and sniffling, because this is peak hay fever season […]
