University Laboratories for Atmosphere Control (ULAC)

we study air quality

Scientists from the University Laboratories for Atmosphere Control (ULAC) study atmospheric air pollution, its spread and impact on human health and the environment. They also conduct physical, chemical and meteorological atmospheric research in the context of climate change and its neutralisation.


The unique and first in Poland research unit composed of conjugated laboratories:

Overhead Mobile Laboratory
equipped with measuring equipment placed in the basket of a hot-air balloon gathers complex data on air quality

Field Mobile Laboratory
equipped with measuring equipment installed in a vehicle, working together in real-time with the research balloon

mikroskop oraz liczba 3

Stationary Laboratories 
equipped with equipment for research on atmospheric pollution are part of the research resources of various units of the University of Silesia


The obtained results will help us assess the impact of contamination, and thanks to cooperation with physicists, mathematicians and IT specialists, they will also allow for modelling this phenomenon.
