  • Automatic Ozone Mapping in France with ISATIS

    In France, air quality data are acquired by associations in charge of the air quality monitoring (Agences Agréées pour la Surveillance de la Qualité de l’Air - AASQA) These associations use the automatic procedures of ISATIS to daily update the pollution maps they publish on their websites. These automatic procedures make use of batch and allow to save time in the cartography because they enable ...

  • Air pollution by ozone across Europe during summer 2010

    Ozone is a 'secondary' pollutant formed in the lower part of the atmosphere (the troposphere) from complex photochemical reactions following emissions of precursor gases such as nitrogen oxide and volatile organic compounds. Ozone is a powerful oxidising agent and one of the air pollutants of most concern in Europe. In Europe, ozone concentrations are also influenced by emissions in other ...

  • The Kansas City, Missouri, Ground-Level Ozone (GLO) Project: A Community-Based Air Pollution Field Experiment

    Tropospheric ozone concentrations for Kansas City are well known on a regional scale. The Kansas City, Missouri, ground-level ozone (GLO) project measured outdoor ozone concentrations using passive sensing devices (PSDs) on a neighborhood scale. Highly resolved exposure maps were made based on the detailed air quality observations collected during the seven week sampling study during the summer ...

  • Global aerosols studied by NILU

    Aerosols scatter and absorb solar radiation and thereby influence the radiation in the atmosphere and the global climate. To understand the climate system and the ongoing climate change it is important to know the distribution of aerosols in the atmosphere. Satellites provide an extremely useful tool to study this distribution, especially since it is very inhomogeneous with respect to ...

  • Every breath you take — air quality in Europe

    The characters in this story are fictional. However the data are real. The story is set on 27 July 2008 when an air quality warning was issued in Brussels. Anna is 37 years old and lives in the centre of Brussels. She and her young son Johan are planning a trip outside the busy city. Anna suffers from asthma and her doctor has warned of the dangers of air pollution, especially on hot summer days. ...

  • Return of the clean air interstate rule—The court does CAIR

    In summer 2008, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a dramatic decision to vacate the Clean Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) in its entirety (North Carolina v. EPA, No. 05-1244, D.C. Cir., July 11, 2008). Following a petition for rehearing, it seems the previous vacatur was just a temporary detour, as the Court reinstated CAIR on December 22, 2008. The reinstatement appears to turn ...

  • What’s Denver doing on the EV-Ready list?

    Looking at the list of the most EV-ready cities just released by Ford, it’s no surprise many of them are coastal. On the east and west coasts energy is pricey, so the pressure is on to achieve innovation that will control costs and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.  But what’s up with Denver out there in the ...

  • Economic growth must be decoupled from environmental harm – the EEA evaluates findings from 2011

    Europe’s impact on the environment is still very much linked to the economy. This message was clear in many of the reports and datasets published by the European Environment Agency (EEA) in 2011, as analysts were able to clearly see a decrease in various emissions and types of environmental damage during the 2009 recession. European Union Member States often take a year or more to fully ...

  • To build a better future, we must imagine ourselves there

    Instead of portraying Earth in 2050 as a hellhole, let’s envision — and create — a place we would love to live Just as I was putting pen to paper for this piece I was amused to receive an invitation from a wonderful organization called “Julie’s Bicycle” to an event with the compelling title: “How to be a ...

  • New NO2 air standards prove technically challenging

    On February 9, 2010, the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established a new National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for nitrogen dioxide (NO2). The new NO2 NAAQS is a one-hour standard set at 100 parts per billion (ppb), which is approximately 188 micrograms per cubic meter (μg/m3). Effective on April 12, 2010, the new one-hour standard is intended to protect against peak ...

  • Unmanned remote and wireless CDM monitoring case study

    Remote and wireless monitoring technology to meet CDM requirements is in its infancy in Europe. Carbon trading is driving it globally, especially in North and South America. That experience and technology is now finding a demand in Europe and Asia in landfill, biogas from food and animal waste in digesters and water treatment sludge digestion. Methane recovery from landfill and anaerobic ...

  • Costs of air pollution from European industrial facilities 2008-2012

    In 2011, the European Environment Agency (EEA) published a first assessment of the costs of air pollution caused by European industrial facilities. The report Revealing the costs of air pollution from industrial facilities in Europe (EEA, 2011) applied a simplified modelling approach to assess the damage costs to health and the environment in 2009, caused by pollutant emissions from industrial ...
