  • A study of atmospheric particulate matter in a city of the central region of Brazil using time-series analysis

    Uberlandia is an important city of the Brazil central region. In this work, the Total Suspended Particles (TSP) and particles smaller than 10 μm (PM10) were sampled from 2003 to 2006. The Geostatistical technique was used to evaluate the temporal dependence and the time-series analysis with 2004 and 2005 data was used to predict 2006 values. The selection of the best model was conducted using ...

  • A study of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in airborne particulate matter in central Taiwan

    Two sampling sites in central Taiwan, at Hungkuang University (HKU) and Tunghai University (THU), were chosen to contrast the content of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the atmosphere from November 2000 to April 2001. PAHs that arise from incomplete combustion of organic materials, especially fossil fuels, are the major toxic pollutants in central Taiwan. This study aimed to analyse ...

  • Measurement of atmospheric particles and anionic species across central Taiwan

    The ambient air concentrations and fluxes of various anionic species were sampled by MOUDI, TSP and dry deposition plates at a traffic sampling site in Taichung, central Taiwan. In the sampling period, from September to December 2000, the ambient air particle concentrations (PM1, PM2.5, PM10 and TSP) were lower in the September than in the ...

  • Short-term variations in ambient particulates and their sources in Taichung, Taiwan

    Ambient particulate measurements were carried out using TE-PUF sampling and a Universal Air Sampler between 8 March and 25 April 2001 at Taichung. Samples were collected every 6 hours beginning at 0100 LST (Local Standard Time) each day at two sites, one at a university campus and the other at a roadside. Chemical species (Cl-, NO3-, ...

  • 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, ...

  • Comparative Risk Assessment

    ' Comparative risk assessment provides a systematic way to compare environmental problems that pose different types and degrees of health risk. It combines information on the inherent hazards of pollutants, exposure levels and population characteristics to predict the resulting health effects. Using data from available sources, rapid, inexpensive comparative risk assessments can identify the most ...

  • The Economic Toll of Pollution’s Effects on Health

    Measuring and valuing the health impacts of pollution are very complex and available methods of economic analysis are often rudimentary. In recent years, considerable progress has been made, especially in respect to air pollution. This note summarizes the latest findings and outlines some basic approaches that can be applied in the economic analysis of Bank projects and sector studies. However, a ...


  • Indicators of Pollution Management

    'The definition and selection of environmental performance indicators is still at an early stage but the use of indicators is increasing, both for the tracking of trends in pollution and other environmental issues at a large scale (national or regional) and also for the monitoring of Bank projects. This note provides a framework to assist in the selection of appropriate indicators for pollution ...
