Abstract/Summary

The principal objective of this thesis is to develop methods for composite indices measuring environmental quality at small spatial scales. Specifically, it is of interest to create a composite environmental quality index at data zone resolution in Greater Glasgow, where data zones are small geographical areas defined by the Scottish Government and used to report various statistics and indicators. The index will consist of various indicators measuring different aspects of environmental quality, being grouped into three ‘domains’: air quality, soil quality and water quality.
