  • Water Quality Data Logger for Monitoring Coal Mine Runoff

    Water Quality Monitoring Solutions from dataTaker CAS DataLoggers provided an intelligent water quality data logging solution for an open-cut coal mine to monitor high salinity water runoff into local retaining ponds with a Water Quality Data Logger. The water from these retention ponds could only be released into the local river system when it was of sufficient quality to have no effect on the ...

  • Baseline data in air quality impact studies

    The main objective of this paper is to explain not only the importance of the baseline data in air quality studies but also the general procedures and steps involved in the baseline data collection. Special considerations on the instruments and measurements for a perfect baseline data collection are also emphasized in this paper. As an example, an adequate baseline data collection procedure which ...

  • Air Quality Monitoring

    Why monitor air quality? Well, to monitor is to know. Everything else is just more or less qualified guesses. International, national and local air quality targets and limits are also tied to monitoring results What is Air Quality? How is air quality characterised? It is quite common to find air quality indexes, where the ranges are divided in sections indicating ...

  • Uncertainty analysis of modelling studies included in air quality assessments

    This paper deals with the development of a quality analysis/quality control (QA/QC) methodology for modelling studies associated with air quality assessments. Among other benefits, this will allow data quality objectives for model input data to be derived and the importance of policy oriented model applications to be assessed. The procedure for evaluating model uncertainty has profited from a ...

  • Investigating weekend air quality observations with the aid of Fourier analysis in Athens, Greece

    Weekend air quality is analysed with the aid of Fourier analysis, in order to reveal time-series structures for Athens, Greece. For this reason, an appropriate analysis of a 10 year record from 1990–1999 of air quality data from the monitoring network in Athens is carried out for two specific monitoring sites. The aim of the paper is to investigate the temporal pattern of observations in order to ...

  • Analysis of the impacts of an environmental traffic management system on vehicle emissions and air quality

    Environmental traffic management systems (ETMS) are implemented to improve air quality in urban streets. They allow for a situation-related control of light signal systems to optimise road capacities and enhance traffic flow in street sections. Therefore, they are equipped with mitigation strategies and continuously provided with traffic and air quality data. In this context, it is ...

  • Statistical analysis of urban air-pollution data in the Athens basin area, Greece

    Air pollutant concentrations recorded in the Athens basin area by a network of stations are analysed and examined to estimate the typical behaviour of the air pollutants, especially with regard to daily, weekly and annual periodicities and meteorological dependencies. Also, an attempt is made to predict daily and monthly concentrations by utilising a statistically based model, that is, a multiple ...

  • Air quality in Europe — 2011 report

    The present report provides an overview and analysis of air quality in Europe. The analysis covers up to 38 European countries (EEA-38) (1) and spans the two decades of data that countries have made officially available up to 2009. The evaluation of the status and trends of air quality is based on ambient air measurements and data on anthropogenic emissions and trends. Emissions of the main air ...

  • A modelling system for air quality management

    To develop effective air quality management strategies at regional and urban levels requires the preparation of several actions belonging to different scientific areas and analysis of their complex interactions. A well-structured management system must be based on efficient tools that integrate diverse sets of information - emissions, traffic, meteorological variables and air quality data. ...

  • Selecting the Right Air Quality Monitor

    There are many types of air quality monitors available, but which one is the best choice for measuring gaseous air pollutant concentrations? There are two classes of such air quality monitors: sampling monitors and in-situ monitors (“in-situ” = “in the original position”). Sampling monitors utilises a manifold through which the air to be analysed is pumped. A small air ...

  • Air quality in Europe — 2012 report

    'Air pollution is bad for our health. It reduces human life expectancy by more than eight months on average and by more than two years in the most polluted cities and regions. Member States must comply with EU air quality standards quickly and reduce air pollutant emissions,' Janez Potočnik, EU Commissioner for the Environment (EU, 2010a). Emissions of air pollutants derive from almost all ...

  • Meteorological normalisation and non-parametric smoothing for quality assessment and trend analysis of tropospheric ozone data

    Despite extensive efforts to ensure that sampling and installation and maintenance of instruments are as efficient as possible when monitoring air pollution data, there is still an indisputable need for statistical post processing (quality assessment). We examined data on tropospheric ozone and found that meteorological normalisation can reveal (i) errors that have not been eliminated by ...

  • Air quality in Europe — 2013 report

    Air quality continues to be a very important issue for public health, the economy and the environment. Europe has significantly cut emissions of several air pollutants in recent decades, greatly reducing emissions and exposure to substances such as sulphur dioxide (SO2), carbon monoxide (CO), benzene (C6H6) and lead (Pb). Despite improvements over several decades, air pollution continues to ...

  • Air quality in Europe — 2015 report

    Air pollution is both an environmental and a social problem, as it leads to a multitude of adverse effects on human health, ecosystems, the built environment and the climate. Air pollution poses the single largest environmental health risk in Europe today. Air pollutants are emitted from anthropogenic and natural sources; they may be transported or formed over long distances; and they may affect ...

  • Air quality modelling: an investigation of the merits of CMAQ in the analysis of trans-boundary air pollution from continents to small islands

    The purpose of this study is to conduct an air quality modelling assessment of trans-boundary air pollutants from the Asian continent by applying an advanced modelling system – the Community Multi-scale Air Quality (CMAQ) – developed by the US Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). The focus of the study is trans-boundary ozone, Particulate Matter (PM), and acid deposition, using selected ...

  • Air quality monitoring and assessment programme for Botswana

    An Air Pollution Monitoring and Surveillance Program (BAQMAP) is being developed, installed and tested for Botswana. The project is funded partly by NORAD and partly by the Botswana Government.  The project is undertaken in a co-operation between Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU) in Norway and Department of Mines (DoM) in Botswana. NILU shall provide professional assistance in the ...

  • Development of air quality indices for Mumbai, India

    This paper proposes a simple approach for developing air quality indices for different sites in an urban region of India. The database used for calculating these indices included various physical and chemical characteristics of suspended particulate matter, such as particle size distribution, chemical (elemental) properties and parameters governing the acidity of precipitation. The indices were ...
