  • Urban ozone modelling by using a prognostic Eulerian air quality system: Madrid case study

    Air quality models are essential tools in the understanding of pollutant dynamics in the urban atmosphere. In this contribution we present an air quality system (ANA), which is composed of a meteorological module that uses a three-dimensional approach with terrain-following coordinates and the non-hydrostatic approach, and a detailed emission model (250 x 250 m) that includes the anthropogenic ...

  • The air quality Model Documentation System of the European Environment Agency

    With the aim of providing objective, reliable and comparable information on air pollution models, the European Topic Centre on Air Quality (ETC/AQ) has developed a concept for an air quality Model Documentation System (MDS) to be accessible on the internet. The aim of the system is to include adequate information on the individual models, their application areas, and their status with respect to ...

  • 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. ...

  • Inter-comparison of two air quality modelling systems for a case study in Berlin

    A case study was carried out to compare two air-quality models (UAM-V and MCCM) in the region of Berlin. These are two well documented regional and urban models which were run independently with their own meteorological drivers and emission inventories with the aim to describe a specific ozone episode. Numerous applications in the US and in Europe have shown the good performance of these models. ...

  • How clean is your local air?

    Few people know how clean the air is where they live, work, exercise or where their children go to school. Although air quality can be shown to vary significantly over short distances, air pollution is generally measured using a small number of large, expensive and high quality monitoring stations. The equipment used in these stations is very accurate and complies with measurement standards but ...

  • A mesoscale study of the impact of industrial emissions by using the MM5-CMAQ modelling system

    The scientific interest in improving the air quality tools that provide a detailed description – source oriented – of atmospheric processes and the impact of specific large industrial emission points is growing. This paper describes the results of using a state-of-the-art third-generation air quality modelling system (MM5-CMAQ) over a pilot test industrial site in the Madrid mesoscale domain. The ...

  • Methodology for developing an air quality index (AQI) for Tunisia

    Air quality index (AQI) is a quantitative tool through which air pollution data can be reported, providing information on how clean or polluted the air is. Several countries employ some type of air quality index to communicate the quality of their air. Some of these systems rely on relating measured (monitored) or predicted concentrations of air pollutants (results of modelling system). In this ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and ...

  • PRESAXIO regional air quality modelling system: validation and applications

    Different operational air quality forecasts (ESSEM Cost Action 0602) are currently available in Europe. However, most of them are not suitable for regional application and, also, their coarse outputs do not fit well with air quality management needs. In this work, PRESAXIO regional air quality modelling system is validated and applied over Galicia (NW of Spain), including WRF and CHIMERE models. ...

  • Development of a GIS-based urban air quality modelling system for transport-related pollution

    In recent years motor vehicles have become the dominant source of air pollution in metropolitan areas. Hence, the assessment of transport-related air quality is of major concern to policymakers and municipal planners. This paper describes an urban air quality modelling system for evaluating the environmental effects of transport related air pollution. A preliminary evaluation of the model has ...

  • Rough set-based regionalisation in air quality monitoring

    Regionalisation is to organise a large set of spatial objects into spatially contiguous regions despite optimising the homogeneity of the derived regions, while representing social and economic geography. To confront this problem, it is necessary to classify the regions to form groups that are homogeneous in air quality attributes. It is to develop a system that applies data mining techniques to ...
