  • Variations in tropospheric submicron particle size distributions across the European continent 2008–2009

    Cluster~analysis of particle number size distributions from~background sites across Europe~is presented. This generated a total of nine clusters of particle size distributions which could be further combined into two main groups, namely: a south-to-north category (four clusters) and a west-to-east category (five clusters). The first group was identified as most frequently being detected inside ...

  • Study of the properties of Aerosols and the air quality index Using a Backscatter Lidar System and Aeronet Sunphotometer in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil

    Between the months of July and September of 2007 during the so-called Brazilian dry season, an aerosol profiling campaign was carried out with a backscatter(ing) lidar system in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil. The main goal of this campaign was to observe the aerosol load in the troposphere (up to 10 km) and its daily behavior to check for air dispersion conditions, planetary boundary, and mixed ...

  • Intercomparison and evaluation of global aerosol microphysical properties among AeroCom models of a range of complexity

    Many of the next generation of global climate models will include aerosol schemes which explicitly simulate the microphysical processes that determine the particle size distribution. These models enable aerosol optical properties and cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) concentrations to be determined by fundamental aerosol processes, which should lead to a more physically based simulation of aerosol ...

  • The LOTOS?EUROS model: description, validation and latest developments

    In this paper, we present a validation study for oxidants and secondary inorganic aerosols using the new regional Chemistry Transport Model (CTM) Long Term Ozone Simulation (LOTOS) European Operational Smog (EUROS). The model is the product of the integration of the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) LOTOS model and the National Institute for Public Health and the ...

  • Remote sensing of particular pollution from space: Have we reached the promised land?

    The recent literature on satellite remote sensing of air quality is reviewed. 2009 is the 50th anniversary of the first satellite atmospheric observations. For the first 40 of those years, atmospheric composition measurements, meteorology, and atmospheric structure and dynamics dominated the missions launched. Since 1995, 42 instruments relevant to air quality measurements have been put into ...

  • GAW Regional Station for Atmospheric Research - 2005 Report

    The aim of the JRC-Ispra station is to monitor the concentration of pollutants in the gas phase, the particulate phase and precipitations, as well as aerosol optical parameters, which can be used for assessing the impact of European policies on air pollution and climate change. Measurements are performed in the framework of international monitoring programs like the Co-operative program for ...


  • GAW Regional Station for Atmospheric Research

    The aim of the JRC-Ispra station is to monitor the concentration of pollutants in the gas phase, the particulate phase and precipitations, as well as aerosol optical parameters, which can be used for assessing the impact of European policies on air pollution and climate change. It is particularly well suited for the participation in international monitoring programs like the Co-operative program ...


  • The Applicability of Remote Sensing in The Field of Air Pollution

    Abstract This report prepared by KNMI and JRC is the final result of a study on the applicability of remote sensing in thefield of air pollution requested by the DG Environment. The objectives of this study were to:• Have an assessment of presently available scientific information on the feasibility of utilising remotesensing techniques in the implementation of existing ...


  • Geoengineering: Worthy of Cautious Evaluation?

    If the increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases due to human activities are indeed causing inadvertent change in the climate, then can we not counter these influences by advertent changes of some type, deliberately geoengineering the climate to ensure optimal conditions? This is a question that was first considered several decades ago, soon after acceptance of indications that it was indeed ...

  • The Rationale for Accelerating Regionally Focused Climate Intervention Research

    Abstract Ten years ago, Paul Crutzen asked whether the time had come to consider undertaking research into intentionally intervening in the climate system so that it might be considered a policy option comparable to reducing emissions for limiting human-induced climate change. Crutzen’s article pointed out how little progress had been made in reducing emissions and suggested that ...

  • What You Need To Know About Hydroxyl Generators

    http://www.randrmagonline.com/articles/86169-what-you-need-to-know-about-hydroxyl-generators The main benefit of using a true hydroxyl generator is that they are safe to use in occupied areas for deodorization purposes. Insurance companies do not have to cover a homeowner’s hotels or meals. Business owners do not have to shut down and loose precious business. If people ...
