  • Leveraging Chemical Data to Manage Risk

    Even if chemicals aren’t central to your business, their hazards are likely pervasive across your supply chain. In fact, chemicals are one of the primary drivers of environmental, health and safety risk in virtually every organization. Both EPA and OSHA provide regulatory guidance based on the types and quantities of chemicals present at your facility. The Department of Transportation and ...

  • Deconstructing EPA's Chemical Data Reporting Rule

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced on Aug. 2, 2011, the final Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) Rule, previously referred to as the Inventory Update Reporting (IUR) Modifications Rule. Proposed revisions to the rule were the subject of considerable debate, which helps explain the rule’s long (nearly a year and a half) gestation period ...

  • A nested application of four-dimensional variational assimilation of tropospheric chemical data

    The chemistry transport model system EURAD-IM and its variational data assimilation module are applied to assess air quality conditions during the measurement campaign VERTIKO. The inverse modelling system has been designed to run in a nested setup, assimilating in-situ observations and measurements by remote sensing. The benefits of joint initial value and emission rate optimisation are ...

  • China in Talks to Join the OECD System for the Mutual Acceptance of Data in Assessment of Chemicals

    It has recently been reported that China is in discussions with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to become a provisional adherent to the Mutual Acceptance of Data (MAD) system. This would require China to accept data from safety testing of chemicals from participating countries generated under the MAD conditions and to establish a Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) ...

  • Exploring runoff processes using chemical, isotopic and hydrometric data in a discontinuous permafrost catchment

    Hydrometric, isotopic and hydrochemical data were used to investigate runoff generation in a discontinuous permafrost headwater catchment. Research was undertaken between 10 April and 8 July 2008 within Granger Basin, a 7.6 km2 sub-catchment of the Wolf Creek Research Basin, Yukon Territory, Canada. The objectives of this research were to utilize hydrometric, stable isotope and hydrochemical ...

  • Further analysis and PMF application to the chemical composition data of IPCAJ's Kashima SPM study

    The Industrial Pollution Control Association of Japan (IPCAJ) has conducted an air quality study. A brief summary has already appeared in previous papers. This set of data was not sufficiently analysed. This study attempts to examine the performance of the Positive Matrix Factorisation (PMF), a recently introduced technique in this field, on this multiple-site Kashima data set. The source ...

  • A method to predict and understand fish survival under dynamic chemical stress using standard ecotoxicity data

    The authors present a method to predict fish survival under exposure to fluctuating concentrations and repeated pulses of a chemical stressor. The method is based on toxicokinetic‐toxicodynamic modeling using the general unified threshold model of survival (GUTS) and calibrated using raw data from standard fish acute toxicity tests. The model was validated by predicting fry survival in a fish ...
