  • The New England Air Quality Forecasting Pilot Program: Development of an Evaluation Protocol and Performance

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently sponsored the New England Forecasting Pilot Program to serve as a “test bed” for chemical forecasting by providing all of the elements of a National Air Quality Forecasting System, including the development and implementation of an evaluation protocol. This Pilot Program enlisted three regional-scale air quality models, serving as ...

  • The benefits of monitoring compressed air

    Compressed air is used in many manufacturing processes for many different reasons, from the actuation and control of pneumatic valves and cylinders to the operation of process machinery and tooling. It can also be used as a transport medium for bulk materials or as a purge gas. For all its uses it is nonetheless expensive. This is why, through detailed monitoring, a business can enjoy the ...

  • Border emissions monitoring program case study

    Upwards of four million trucks enter the U.S. each year through various southern port crossings in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Scientific studies at congested US-Mexico border crossings suggest that cross-border truck emissions are contributing to air pollution problems in border communities. Officials expect the problem to become increasingly severe and widespread when the North ...

  • Micro Pulse LiDAR Monitors Air Quality at Mining Sites in Real Time - Case Study

    Early Detection of Adverse Particulate Matter Aids Dust Management Dust emissions at open-cut coal mines are a potential threat to air quality in surrounding areas. To learn more about particulate matter (PM) and how it travels beyond a mine’s boundaries, a research grant from the Australian Coal Association Research Program (ACARP) was awarded to Pacific Environment, an environmental ...

  • 2 ambient air monitoring stations for Bangladesh

    Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries in the world and its urban areas suffer from air pollution of different levels and it is extremely high in the Dhaka city where the population is about 12 million in 300 km2 of surface area. It has been estimated that air pollution is causing about 15,000 premature deaths and several million cases of illness every year, in the Dhaka city ...

  • Observational needs for four-dimensional air quality characterization

    Surface-based monitoring programs provide the foundation for associating air pollution and causal effects in human health studies, and they support the development of air quality standards and the preparation of emission reduction strategies. While surface-oriented networks remain a key tool for addressing traditional single pollutant human exposure challenges, these networks in isolation are not ...

  • The US Clean Air Act: Improving air quality and tracking greenhouse gas emissions?

    The US Clean Air Act is a federal law designed to reduce air pollution in order to improve the nation’s overall air quality. The intent of the federal law is to identify and reduce harmful substances that weaken the stratospheric ozone layer and continue to contribute to global climate change.Many of these pollutants, refrigerant gases, or Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) can be found within companies, ...

  • Develop a `real-time` air emissions monitoring strategy for your facility

    To improve air quality, states and localities are requiring more intense 24/7 monitoring of listed air pollutants from hydrocarbon processing facilities. Affected facilities must develop reliable and accurate environmental data management systems for reporting purposes. In this case history, the BP Texas City site (a refinery and chemicals plant) successfully implemented a real-time environmental ...
