  • Environmental modelling for blue collars

    Model complexity and the ‘breakpoint of diminishing returns’; ‘physical’ vs. ‘conceptual’ modelling; the relevance and limits of the heuristic solutions; screening vs. analytical modelling; perceptions of uncertainties, calibration and sensitivity analysis; and the ‘ethics in modelling’ – are only a few issues outstanding in the volatile philosophy of the environmental modelling. Glossing on ...

  • A geo-referenced modeling environment for ecosystem risk Assessment: Organophosphate pesticides in an agriculturally dominated watershed

    Received for publication May 5, 2008. A geo-referenced modeling system was developed in this study to investigate the spatiotemporal variability of pesticide distributions and associated ecosystem risks. In the modeling system, pesticide fate and transport processes in soil-canopy system were simulated at field scale by the pesticide root zone model (PRZM). Edge-of-field mass fluxes were ...

  • Comparison of linear and non-linear models for the adsorption of fluoride onto geo-material: limonite

    The three widely used isotherms Langmuir, Freundlich and Temkin were examined in an experiment using fluoride (F−) ion adsorption on a geo-material (limonite) at four different temperatures by linear and non-linear models. Comparison of linear and non-linear regression models were given in selecting the optimum isotherm for the experimental results. The coefficient of determination, r2, ...

  • Relating geo–meteorological parameters to global solar radiation for Egypt by Iranna–Bapat's estimation models

    Estimation of solar radiation is considered as the most important parameter for the design and development of various solar energy systems. But, the availability of the required data is very scarce and often not readily accessible. The foremost objective of the present study was to estimate the monthly average global solar radiation (GSR) at various locations for Egypt, by the generalised ...

  • Modelling trade and environmental linkages in China

    Interactions between trade and the environment have been studied extensively as a reaction to the pressure that the accelerated pace of globalisation has placed on environment and trade. Distinguishing itself from previous work, this study focuses on a modelling analysis of the interactions between trade and the environment in China. A non-linear simultaneous equation trade and environment model ...

  • On the formulation of environmental fugacity models and their numerical solutions

    Multimedia models based on chemical fugacity, solved numerically, play an important role in investigating and quantifying the environmental fate of chemicals such as persistent organic pollutants (POPs). These models have been utilised extensively in the study of the local and global distribution of chemicals in the environment. This paper describes potential sources of error that may arise ...

  • Regulatory models for environmental impact assessments in Hungary

    This paper describes the methodology and input requirements of environmental impact assessments regulated in Hungary by national standards for more than 10 years. The main characteristics are (a) various models simulate the impact of point, multi-source, line and area sources on local, urban and regional scales, (b) design transmission matrices are readily available for the greater part of the ...

  • Modelling farmers’ participation in agri-environmental schemes in Greece

    Agri-Environmental Schemes (AES) are the main policy instrument currently available in the European Union to encourage environmental improvements in agriculture, but their adoption in Greece and generally in Southern Europe is relatively low. Policy makers have still limited experience on how farmers approach environmental schemes. The aim of this paper is to examine the factors that determine ...

  • Improved environmental multimedia modeling and its sensitivity analysis

    Modeling of multimedia environmental issues is extremely complex due to the intricacy of the systems with the consideration of many factors. In this study, an improved environmental multimedia modeling is developed and a number of testing problems related to it are examined and compared with each other with standard numerical and analytical methodologies. The results indicate the flux output of ...

  • Models of energy saving systems: the battlefield of environmental planning

    Traditionally, energy planning has been interpreted as planning for an appropriate energy supply system, based on a crude prognosis for the energy demand. Over the past couple of decades, however, the immense possibilities of regulating energy demand - and the benefits of doing it - have become increasingly recognised and also partly included in the planning. This paper first describes some ...

  • Atmospheric environmental impact assessment modelling in France

    The most widely accepted model of atmospheric dispersion for impact assessment in France is the Gaussian model of Doury. The Centre d'Etudes Atomiques (CEA) and Electricite de France (EDF) have developed their own software systems, which include several compatible or nested meteorological, trajectory, and dispersion codes. These systems are fitted to the various atmospheric scales from regional ...

  • Endogenous technology and environmental quality in economic models

    The debate on the relationship between the economy and the environment focuses on the question whether there is a trade-off between economic growth and environmental quality. In order to enable a quantification of this essentially empirical question, it is necessary to integrate the environment into economic models. This article considers the integration of the environment in models of economic ...

  • Understanding QSPR uncertainty in environmental fate modeling

    In cases where experimental data on chemical‐specific input parameters are lacking, chemical regulations allow the use of alternatives to testing, such as in silico predictions based on quantitative structure‐property relationships (QSPRs). Such predictions are often given as point estimates; however, little is known about to what extent uncertainties associated with QSPR predictions contribute ...

  • An Interactive Environmental Economy Model for Energy Cycle in Iran

    ABSTRACT The growing world economy calls for saving natural resources with sustainable development framework. This paper intends to look at the environment-energy interface (impacts on the environment stemming form the energy sector) and to propose measures for reducing this impact without trying to impede economic development. In addition, this paper estimates the amounts of energy subsidies ...

  • Review of the requirements for models and model applications

    Requirements for models and model applications are reviewed on basis of the Dobris Assessment report and the practice in EU legislation and international organisations, and from the responses of a questionnaire sent to 38 European countries. Model applications are frequently used for regulatory and general assessment purposes by various users (scientists, air quality managers, policy-makers). ...

  • Community modeling systems: classification and relevance to hydrologic modeling

    Numerical modeling in the water sciences has been shifting from developing single or specific purpose-oriented tightly intertwined model applications to integrated model systems addressing more complex and interlinked geo-physical, -chemical and -biological processes across all strata of the critical zone geo-volume. This is a response to a number of important issues that span from preservation ...

  • Remote monitoring of groundwater pollution using geo-electric techniques in undulating sandy terrain, Western Australia

    Early-time transient electromagnetic sounding (TEM) and DC resistivity sounding techniques have been used to monitor remotely the changes with time of a groundwater pollution plume at a test site on a sand aquifer. A range of techniques for interpretation of TEM sounding data have been evaluated. All of these were successful in identifying expansion of the plume. The most plausible interpretation ...

  • Modelling street canyon pollution: model requirements and expectations

    Dispersion of pollution from traffic in urban street canyons is governed by a complex wind flow structure, which hardly can be described by traditional Gaussian models. On the other hand, some simple rules can be used to provide rough estimates of pollution levels, especially considering the worst-case conditions. The model requirements will thus also depend on the particular application and the ...
