  • Mining Emissions Effectively Monitored with Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    Mining operations include blasting, excavating, scraping, and sifting large amounts of dirt. These activities create dust and other emissions that are transported by air currents to surrounding areas. It is easy to say that dangerous particulate matter (PM) generated by mining should be monitored and kept to a minimum; however, it is very challenging to measure the levels of contaminants in the ...

  • Weather Data for Noise Monitoring

    “Weather conditions are the single largest variable factor in how sound travels over large distances,” says Steve Bilawchuk principal partner and engineer at ACI Acoustical Consultants Inc. “Wind speed and wind direction are of crucial importance.” ACI is an acoustical engineering consulting company based in Alberta, Canada, which uses ...

  • 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, ...

  • Smart solar monitoring / PV monitoring with smart weather sensors - Case Study

    When selecting a suitable pyranometer for photovoltaic monitoring the company Solare Datensysteme GmbH decided for the Lufft WS501-UMB All-in-one weather station. According to the company the Pyranometer delivers the most precise measurements for the overall irradiance and serves to measure the exact local prevailing overall irradiance at large plants. The Pyranometer is installed ...

  • Weather monitoring at German Landfills - Case Study

    According to the Landfill Regulation and Federal Emission Law in Germany it is mandatory on landfills to monitor weather data such as temperature, precipitation, evaporation, wind direction and speed. This is not only good for environmental protection purposes but also for the residents nearby. In this regard two new Lufft weather stations and one Lufft wind sensor were set up recently in Hamberg ...

  • Baseline data in air quality impact studies

    The main objective of this paper is to explain not only the importance of the baseline data in air quality studies but also the general procedures and steps involved in the baseline data collection. Special considerations on the instruments and measurements for a perfect baseline data collection are also emphasized in this paper. As an example, an adequate baseline data collection procedure which ...

  • Visualizing the stories data can tell

    Scientists and technologists are turning numbers about everything from condors to ocean-floor contours into visual representations of environmental issues. We’re living in an era of Big Data, but too often it’s nothing more than a fire hose of numbers and data sets that most would have difficulty understanding. Increasingly, though, entities such as non-governmental ...

  • Digging for data on Africa’s climate future

    The cardboard box is covered with a layer of dust so thick it must have been tucked away in this Kenyan basement for decades. The researcher wipes off the dust and rummages through the papers stored inside by someone long since retired. Sheet after sheet of neatly typed paper emerges, the faded rows of numbers detailing rainfall, temperature and wind speed. In a way, the researcher is hunting for ...

  • Construction and Civil Infrastructures Monitoring Systems

    Civil infrastructures are usually monitored through its whole life cycle. SHM (Structural Health Monitoring) technologies enable the estimation of the structural state and detection of structural change that affects the performance of a structure. Two discriminating factors in SHM are the time-scale of the change (how quickly the state changes) and the severity of the change. These factors ...

  • What is Long Term Noise Monitoring?

    It might sound simple, but long term noise monitoring can mean different things to different people. There is no standard definition for what long term noise monitoring is, but here is a summary that covers the basics. I first presented this presentation at the IOA Eastern Branch meeting and wanted to share my thoughts on what classes as long term noise monitoring. I’ll also discuss ...

  • Monitoring network for Scottish ports - Case Studies

    Historically, ferry masters operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to a port and on arrival visually assess the weather and tide conditions before deciding whether safe berthing alongside the pier or quayside would be possible. This wastes time and fuel, and can causes immense frustration among passengers, who may see ferries come close to a port, but thereafter depart ...
