  • Transboundary air pollution research

    No other research institution in Norway has been paid off so well in EU's fifth framework programme as the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU). 'Norway is of no importance to the Europeans', this is the opinion of Director Øystein Hov. 'It's no use promoting Norwegian special points of view in the ...

  • Air pollution from ships

    Emissions from shipping contribute significantly to the concentrations and fallout of harmful air pollutants in Europe. There are however technical means by which these pollutants could be cut by as much as 80-90 per cent, and very cost-effectively compared with what would have to be done to achieve similar results by taking further measures on land-based sources. Such reductions are needed for ...

  • Fireworks air pollution in Slovenia

    Over the 'Christmas–New Year' period 12/2010–01/2011, PM10 air pollution measurements on most of the automatic measuring stations in Slovenia reached extreme values of up to 300 µg/m³. Analysis shows a very close correlation with the timings of the fireworks displays in the areas. This paper shows the other side of this cultural enjoyment - the effect on PM10 air pollution. As the correlation ...

  • History of Air Pollution in the UK

    Introduction Concern about urban air quality is not new. Complaints were recorded in the 13th century when coal was first used in London. Since the middle of the 19th century, the atmosphere of the major British cities was regularly polluted by coal smoke in winter, giving rise to an infamous mixture of fog and smoke known as smog. Today the emphasis has shifted from the pollution ...

  • Common Indoor Air Pollutants

    Is the indoor air you breathe healthy? According to the World Health Organization, 40% of all buildings pose a serious health hazard due to indoor air pollution. The EPA calls indoor air pollution the #1 pollution problem inAmerica. The following is a list of common indoor air pollutants: Dust, Pollen, and Other Allergens Chemical Fumes and Vapors Mold and Fungus Toxic ...

  • Inversions and air pollution in Istanbul

    Owing to the rapidly growing and inefficient usage of fuel, air pollution has increased in Istanbul. The levels are affected by the weak dispersion conditions in the city. The strength of the inversion can be explained by the temperature difference between the top and bottom boundaries and their height. In this study, nighttime surface inversion heights have been found to range between 84 m and ...

  • AirQuis: A basis for air pollution forecasting

    The GIS based air quality planning system, AirQUIS, represent a perfect platform for developing numerical air quality forecasting.  AirQUIS The Air Pollution Surveillance and Information System, AirQUIS, has been developed on a Geographical Information System (GIS) platform. The main objective has been to enable direct data and information transfer and obtain a remote quality control of ...

  • Evaluation of air pollution trends in Istanbul

    Previously, SO2 and PM10 (particulate matter less than 10 Bm in size) concentration distributions have been investigated in order to assess air pollution in Istanbul during the winter season (November–March) in which the concentration of these pollutants had reached formidably high levels due to the consumption of low-quality fuels (mainly coal) for residential ...

  • Some aspects of air pollution in Buenos Aires city

    This paper presents three aspects of air pollution in the city of Buenos Aires (Argentina). First, we describe the main features of air pollution climatology in the city: the characteristics of wind flow, atmospheric stability and mixing heights. Then, we present the results of the application of DAUMOD and ISCST3 atmospheric dispersion models to calculate spatial and temporal distributions of ...

  • Air pollution and inversion features in Istanbul

    Air pollution in the Istanbul metropolitan area arises from three significant sources: industrial and residential fossil fuels and road traffic. In winter this combination pushes air pollution to levels that are dangerous to humans and to plant life. As far as fossil fuels are concerned, total suspended particulates (TSP) and sulphur dioxide are the chief pollutants. In order to investigate the ...

  • Air pollution winter episode in Oslo

    During 7 to 9 January 2003 the air pollution in Oslo reached record levels. The reason was that cold air was building up at the surface in the capital city of Norway. The cold air persisted for days while much warmer air was moving above the heavy cold air layer. On 8 January before noon a strong low temperature inversion at about 100 to150 masl was observed. This inversion completely blocked the ...

  • Synergistic effects of pollutants on air quality

    The Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) was developed in the USA to give the public an overall assessment of the air quality on a regular basis. Currently, the PSI does not include the synergistic effects of the major air pollutants. Synergism applies when the damage caused by two or more pollutants, either to human health or property, is greater than the effect or damage caused by each individual ...
