  • Air Sampling During NPP Accident

    There has been considerable interest recently generated regarding emergency air sampling protocols as a result of the Fukushima accident in Japan. A major concern involving air sampling requirements is the accurate determination of gaseous-radioactive iodine species emitted from the NPP to the environment as a result of an accident. During normal NPP operation gaseous radioactive iodine ...

  • Bioremediation of fuel oil spill at a coastal naval air station in the united kingdom

    Introduction Approximately 1000 gallons of fuel oil had seeped from broken storage tank lines into the soil matrix beneath a boiler house. Oil was subsequently forced from beneath the boiler building by periodic heavy rainfall. The fuel oil migrated down a slope into a farmer"s field causing extensive damage to the vegetation and grazing area inhabited by sheep. ...

  • 2013: a ‘perfect storm’ in air quality

    As many countries fail to meet air quality targets and large numbers of premature deaths still result from air pollution, Jim Mills, a particulate monitoring specialist and Managing Director of Air Monitors, explains why 2013 will be a pivotal year. In November 2011 Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for the Environment, expressed his determination to make 2013 the ‘Year of ...

  • Cartography for air quality monitoring: the geostatistical approach

    Being able to provide quick and accurate pollutant maps from readings at isolated measurement stations is becoming more important today in light of the European norms on air quality and the public’s demand to be informed. Commonly used algorithms for cartography are quick but their accuracy remains to be determined.Firstly, the choice of method is arbitrary and based on user’s subjective ...

  • 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 PM2.5 ...

  • Effects of industrial air pollution on the respiratory health of children

    There is growing concern regarding to the possible effects of air pollution on respiratory health of children in Eleme industrial area of Port-Harcourt Nigeria. A total of 250 children were sampled from six primary schools with pre-nursery facilities for a period of 18 months. Subjects were divided into two zones (A and B), monitored and examined on weekly basis. The effects of four criteria ...

  • Status of black carbon monitoring in ambient air in Europe

    Black carbon (BC) is increasingly discussed in science and environmental policy areas as an example of an air pollutant that affects both human health and contributes to climate change (e.g. WHO, 2012; UNEP/WMO, 2011; Bond et al., 2013; IPCC, 2013). In order to be able to make comparable measurements of BC in ambient air and to relate BC monitoring to health impacts and climate change it is ...

  • EPA studies identify techniques for critical leak testing prior to soil-vapor sampling

    Researchers at EPA’s National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL) in Ada, OK, are developing quality assurance (QA) measures for soil-gas and sub-slab sampling methods that help differentiate contaminant vapors due to vapor intrusion from background sources. Recent research focused on measures to identify leakage of ambient air into conventional vapor probes, which can significantly ...

  • Ambient air quality levels in Tehran, Iran, from 1988 to 1993

    The objectives of this study were to describe trends in ambient air quality in Tehran between 1988 and 1993, to determine if these levels exceeded the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, and to discuss possible health effects related to exposure for these particular pollutants. Data were acquired from Iran's Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) and the Ministry of Health (MH). These ...

  • Practical use of the ISCST3 model to select monitoring site locations for air pollution control

    We present an objective methodology for selection of the minimum number of sampling sites required to register the highest concentration values of air pollutants emitted from a continuous point source. The methodology is based on the analysis of 1-hour concentration values above a threshold value estimated by atmospheric dispersion models. The number and location of the air monitoring stations ...
