  • 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 ...

  • Seasonal variation in suspended particulate matter vis-a-vis meteorological parameters at Kolar Gold Fields, India

    Particulate matter concentrations and meteorological parameters were monitored to assess the impact of other industries likely to be set up at Kolar Gold Fields, India. Particulate matter less than 10 µm was the highest in winter due to the influence of gold mill tailings dumps while total suspended particulate matter was generally higher in spring probably due to the influence of uncovered area ...

  • 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, ...

  • Impact of sound attenuation by suspended sediment on ADCP backscatter calibrations

    Abstract. Although designed for velocity measurements, acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCPs) are widely being used to monitor suspended particulate matter in rivers and in marine environments. To quantify mass concentrations of suspended matter, ADCP backscatter is generally calibrated with in situ measurements. ADCP backscatter calibrations are often highly site-specific and season ...

  • 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 ...

  • What is the difference between A PM2.5 Monitor and a PM10 Monitor?

    Ambient air particulate monitoring is of more interest than ever before. The reason is new public awareness of the health effects of small particles suspended in the air, in combination with increased vehicle fleets emitting such particles. ...

  • Expanding lead monitoring in support of EPA`s revised NAAQS

    On October 15, 2008, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) substantially strengthened the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for lead. The revised standards are 10 times lower than the previous standards and will improve health protection for at-risk groups with a particular focus on children. In conjunction with this strengthening of the lead NAAQS, EPA changed the existing ...

  • Micro Pulse LiDAR Monitors Air Quality at Mining Sites in Real Time - Case Study

    Early Detection of Adverse Particulate Matter Aids Dust Management Dust emissions at open-cut coal mines are a potential threat to air quality in surrounding areas. To learn more about particulate matter (PM) and how it travels beyond a mine’s boundaries, a research grant from the Australian Coal Association Research Program (ACARP) was awarded to Pacific Environment, an environmental ...

  • Source apportionment of PM2.5 in urban areas using multiple linear regression as an inverse modelling technique

    One method to assess the source contribution of particulate matter to urban air quality is through inverse modelling where emissions are estimated using dispersion models and monitoring data. In this paper, a straightforward inverse modelling method, using Multiple Linear Regression, is described and applied to the urban area of Oslo for PM2.5. The results of the inverse ...

  • Influence of meteorological factors on air pollution concentration for a coastal region in India

    A long-term study of measurement of concentration of NOx, SO2 and TSP pollutants have been done in a port and harbour region in India. Monthly measurements of gaseous and particulate pollutants were made at six monitoring stations from January 1997 to December 2000. Meteorological data was also simultaneously collected. In this study, the relationship between ...

  • Map algal blooms with satellite remote sensing technology

    The quality of water bodies is a key determinant in the usability of the resource for the purpose required. It is therefore of great importance to managers of hydrologic resources to be able to confidently tell the status of their water resource. One of the major problems in the quality of surface water bodies is the blooming of algae and blue green algae. Algal blooms can result in ecological, ...

  • Ambient air quality levels in Tehran, Iran, from 1988 to 1993

    The objectives of this study were to describe trends in ambient air quality in Tehran between 1988 and 1993, to determine if these levels exceeded the World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, and to discuss possible health effects related to exposure for these particular pollutants. Data were acquired from Iran's Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) and the Ministry of Health (MH). These ...

  • A novel image processing-based system for turbidity measurement in domestic and industrial wastewater

    Wastewater treatment facilities are continually challenged to meet both environmental regulations and reduce running costs (particularly energy and staffing costs). Improving the efficiency of operational monitoring at wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) requires the development and implementation of appropriate performance metrics; particularly those that are easily measured, strongly ...
