  • Integrated assessment of Nitrogen losses from agriculture in EU-27 using Miterra-Europe

    Received for publication February 29, 2008. The high N inputs to agricultural systems in many regions in 27 member states of the European Union (EU-27) result in N leaching to groundwater and surface water and emissions of ammonia (NH3), nitrous oxide (N2O), nitric oxide (NO), and dinitrogen (N2) to the atmosphere. Measures taken to decreasing these emissions often focus at one specific ...

  • British Columbia`s climate action plan

    We’ve all seen signs that our climate is changing – from devastating storms, to longer summer droughts, to the warmer winters linked to the mountain pine beetle epidemic threatening Interior forests. Some people argue that these changes are natural; that the earth’s climactic patterns have always varied from year to year and decade to decade. However, in November 2007, the Intergovernmental Panel ...

  • Nitrous oxide emission from the littoral zones of the Miyun Reservoir near Beijing, China

    Large dams may be substantial contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. Nitrous oxide (N2O) is the third most important greenhouse gas but studies on N2O emission from reservoirs are limited. We measured N2O emissions and environmental factors including atmospheric pressure, wind speed, air and soil/sediment temperature, biomass, soil water content and organic matter, total ...

  • Variability of PM10 concentrations dependent on meteorological conditions

    The influence of atmospheric exchange conditions on near-surface PM10 concentrations is analysed for four cities in the South-West of Germany in the period from 2001 to 2005. For each city, the PM10 data originates from roadside stations and Urban Background (UB) stations, that is, two types of official urban air quality monitoring stations characterised by different emission situations. The ...

  • Dynamic atmospheric chamber systems: applications to trace gas emissions from soil and plant uptake

    Atmospheric emissions, transport, transformation and deposition of trace gases may be simulated through chambers. The dynamic flow-through chamber system has been developed in response to a need to measure emissions of nitrogen, sulphur and carbon compounds for a variety of field applications. Oxides of nitrogen (NO, NO2, NOY) emissions have been measured from ...

  • Normalisation in Emissions Monitoring – What Does It Mean?

    Emission sources (stack emissions) are found across different industries including power generation, cement production, steel making, energy from waste, chemicals processing, oil and gas refining and food processing. Emission monitoring systems that measure emissions released into the atmosphere are used to demonstrate compliance with environmental regulations. It is preferred, to report gaseous ...

  • Protecting America with Specialty Gases

      Prior to 9/11, environmental concerns largely focused on monitoring, controlling and reducing the pollution the industrial revolution had set in motion. From a specialty gas point of view, our efforts at Scott ...

  • New Study Raises Big Questions on U.S. Fugitive Methane Emissions

    A new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences sheds light on a question that continues to vex industry executives and policymakers alike: How significant are fugitive methane ...

  • Methane emission potential of open dumps in Chennai: a case study

    Monitoring of atmospheric levels of methane and other Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) holds great promise for the mitigation of global warming resulting from increasing radioactive trapping by atmospheric gases. Since, the direct measurements of landfill methane emission found to be difficult, the methane emission potential of the open dumps in Chennai has been estimated using first–order decay models ...

  • Understanding the CARB Refrigerant Gas Management regulations (2010 early actions)

    Many of today's AC/HVAC systems and refrigerant products have high global warming (GWP) potential emissions. These include air conditioning (AC) in cars, homes and office buildings, commercial and home refrigerators, fire suppressant systems, and much more. Many of today's AC/HVAC systems and refrigerant products have high global warming (GWP) potential emissions. These include air conditioning ...
