  • 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 ...

  • PM10 and Their Effect in Respiratory Diseases of Population in Mexicali, Mexico

    Summary Constant exposure to air contaminants may cause of respiratory illnesses and trigger cardiovascular problems. In the last years, norms have been proposed to reducing air pollution, nevertheless, diseases and death cases are still occurring. It seems that there is a relation between excessive levels of PM10 and the increment of acute respiratory infections (ARI). Mexican and American ...


  • Characteristics and expected health implications of annual PM10 concentrations in Athens, Greece

    Several characteristics of the annual PM10 concentrations in the Athens conurbation, together with the expected health implications, are investigated using data from the Athens network of monitoring stations. Annual PM10 concentrations show a decreasing trend; however, concentration levels are still high, exceeding the current EU air quality standard at four monitoring stations and the Air ...

  • Estimation of number of deaths associated with exposure to excess ambient PM10 air pollution

    The respirable particle matter (PM10) concentration in urban areas has been a chronic cause concern and principal reason for increased morbidity rate among resident population. The present study aimed at estimating a discrete event like mortality rate associated and attributable to excess particulate matter pollution in the Kathmandu Valley area. The Government of Nepal conducts air monitoring of ...

  • Ambient air quality of Kathmandu valley as reflected by atmospheric particulate matter concentrations (PM10)

    This paper presents the analysis and interpretation of ambient particulate matter concentrations measured as PM10 at a network of six air monitoring stations in Kathmandu valley during the years, 2003 through 2005. The purpose was to understand the pollution trends associated with different areas considering levels particulate matter concentrations representing the ambient air quality of ...

  • Modelling long-term averages of local ambient air pollution in Oslo, Norway: evaluation of nitrogen dioxide, PM10 and PM2.5

    Large seasonal variations in climate as in Norway give challenges for air pollution modelling, especially of Particulate Matter (PM) that seldom has been evaluated. The EPISODE model calculated ambient concentrations of nitrogen dioxide (NO2), PM with diameter ...

  • Inter-Relationships and Seasonal Variations of Inorganic Components of Pm10 in a Western Pacific Coastal City

    Five year (1995–1999) datasets for inorganic major and trace components in PM10 from three monitoring sites in Hong Kong are presented. The concentrations of most chemical constituents show a high degree of seasonality, with high concentrations in winter but low ones in summer, resulting from the combined effects of summer monsoon scavenging and the influx of the continental air mass of the ...

  • Dust monitoring

    Generally, two different approaches are used to measure the amount of dust deposited on a surface; Determination of the soiling of a surface, by a change in its properties; Determination of the quantity of dust deposited, by weight. WHAT IS DUST? Dust is a generic term used to describe fine particles that are suspended in the atmosphere. Dust comes from a wide variety of sources, including soil, ...

  • Monitoring - Pollution Prevention Guidelines

    Introduction Pollution Prevention Guidelines to provide technical advice and guidance to staff and consultants involved in pollution-related projects. The guidelines represent state-of-the-art thinking on how to reduce pollution emissions from the production process. In many cases, the guidelines provide numerical targets for reducing pollution, as well as maximum ...

  • Monitoring Environmental Quality

    ' In order to determine the effectiveness of actions to improve environmental quality it is necessary to be able to measure relevant environmental parameters at a level of detail which is accurate enough to distinguish the anticipated changes. However, the establishment and maintenance of monitoring systems is time-consuming and expensive and therefore the scale of such systems needs to be kept ...

  • Why monitor dust in the workplace?

    Almost any place of employment can present a potential threat to health and safety from airborne particulates and aerosols. It is important to note, however, that dust hazards are not necessarily visible to the human eye and that the finest particles can represent the greatest threat because of their ability to travel deepest into the lungs. Effective monitoring is therefore key to the ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • An ambient air quality monitoring network for Buenos Aires city

    This paper proposes an objective methodology for designing a multi-pollutant urban air-quality monitoring network to detect concentrations greater than reference concentration levels (CL). The network design includes both air quality simulation and an objective analysis based on monitoring tasks. The proposed methodology is applied to the city of Buenos Aires. Pollutants of concern are nitrogen ...

  • TSI dust monitors and Lufft weather sensors make a great team

    Both aerosols and wind speed and direction influence air quality significantly. This is why TSI Incorporated, a world leader in particle measurements, cooperates with Lufft USA in order to provide complete systems to measure PM2.5 (fine dust), PM10 (particles with a maximum diameter of 10 μm) as well as total PM levels. TSI Incorporated offers a variety of aerosol ...

  • Trends of lead in suspended particulate matter in Zagreb air

    Monitoring of lead in Total Suspended Particulate Matter (TSPM) started in Zagreb, Croatia in 1971 at three measuring sites. Monitoring of lead concentrations in PM10 started in 1999. This paper presents the trends of annual mean values for lead concentrations in TSPM and in PM10 particles. The obtained data showed a decreasing trend of lead in TSPM, especially during the last ten years when the ...

  • Personal exposure to particulate air pollution in transport microenvironments

    Personal measurements of exposure to particulate air pollution (PM10, PM2.5, PM1) were simultaneously madeduring walking and in-car journeys on two suburban routes in Northampton, UK, during the winter of 1999/2000.Comparisons were made between concentrations found in each transport mode by particle fraction, between differentparticle fractions by transport mode, and between transport ...

  • Influence of sea-land breezes on the tempospatial distribution of atmospheric aerosols over coastal region

    The influence of sea-land breezes (SLBs) on the spatial distribution and temporal variation of particulate matter (PM) in the atmosphere was investigated over coastal Taiwan. PM was simultaneously sampled at inland and offshore locations during three intensive sampling periods. The intensive PM sampling protocol was continuously conducted over a 48-hr period. During this time, PM2.5 and ...

  • Mesoscale controls on particulate matter pollution for a mega city in a semi-arid mountainous environment: Tehran, Iran

    Tehran, the mega-city capital of Iran, suffers from high concentrations of PM10 throughout the year. Emissions from transport combined with mesoscale atmospheric features related to the mountainous terrain lead to a distinctive diurnal pattern in concentrations. Air quality data from monitoring stations show that the highest concentrations of PM10 are in the morning and evening periods, ...
