  • Two Detector Solution to Analyzing Sulfur

    Sulfur compounds are reactive, corrosive to pipes, and destructive to catalysts in petroleum refineries. Sulfur emission are strictly regulated globally. When released into the atmosphere sulfur dioxide converts to sulfuric acid resulting in adverse effects on human health and the environment. Sulfur detection is found useful in many other industries; therefore, detection of sulfur compounds in ...

  • Caribbean volcano erupts and pollutes atmosphere

    The Soufriere Hills Volcano on Montserrat Island in the Caribbean erupted in the early morning hours of May 20, 2006. The eruption sent the following days a cloud of ash and volcanic gas nearly 17 kilometers (55,000 feet) into the atmosphere. Flying on NASA’s Aqua satellite, the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) tracked the cloud as it drifted west over the Caribbean Sea and Central America. ...

  • Remote sensing of particular pollution from space: Have we reached the promised land?

    The recent literature on satellite remote sensing of air quality is reviewed. 2009 is the 50th anniversary of the first satellite atmospheric observations. For the first 40 of those years, atmospheric composition measurements, meteorology, and atmospheric structure and dynamics dominated the missions launched. Since 1995, 42 instruments relevant to air quality measurements have been put into ...

  • Emissions, Concentrations, & Temperature: A Time Series Analysis

    Abstract  We use recent advances in time series econometrics to estimate the relation among emissions of CO2 and CH4, the concentration of these gases, and global surface temperature. These models are estimated and specified to answer two questions; (1) does human activity affect global surface temperature and; (2) does global surface temperature affect the atmospheric concentration of ...

  • Polish gas from Polish coal: environmental benefits

    The development of coalbed methane gas from Polish coal offers a significant opportunity to reduce noxious pollutant emissions associated with coal combustion. A review of energy supply and consumption within Poland, and of available coalbed methane resources, indicates that use of coalbed methane could eliminate 40-60 million tonnes of sulfur dioxide and particulates from the atmosphere, save ...

  • A statistical model for predicting carbon monoxide levels

    This paper presents a statistical model that is able to predict carbon monoxide (CO) concentrations as a function of meteorological conditions and various air quality parameters. The experimental work was conducted in an urban atmosphere, where the emissions from cars are prevalent. A mobile air pollution monitoring laboratory was used to collect data, which were divided into two groups: a ...

  • Least-Cost Approaches to Reducing Acid Emissions

    ' The costs of meeting sulfur emission targets can be high. It is essential, therefore, that countries adopt policies which (a) minimize the net economic and social costs of reducing emissions to the agreed target levels, and (b) maximize the overlap between measures designed to reduce acidifying emissions and those addressing other forms of air pollution. This note discusses alternative ...

  • Geo-Engineering to Confine Climate Change: Is it at all Feasible?

    Paul Crutzen (2006) has suggested a research initiative to consider whether itwould be feasible to artificially enhance the albedo of the planet Earth to counteract greenhouse warming. The enhancement of albedo would be achieved by intentionally injecting sulfur into the stratosphere. The rational for proposing the experiment is the observed cooling of the atmosphere following the recent major ...
