  • Costs of Air Pollution Control

    This book describes the development of cost effective abatement strategies aimed at the control of air pollutant emissions in Europe, with a focus on ground level ozone. The author starts with the air pollution status quo in the late 1990s, discussing the impacts of photooxidant concentrations in the context of other air pollution related effects. ...

  • Regional Climate Variability and its Impacts in the Mediterranean Area

    Global change due to natural processes and anthropogenic activity as well as the natural variability of the climate system will impact all areas of the globe. However, the impact will not be uniform and different impacts of differing magnitude and nature will be felt in various regions of the globe. The Mediterranean region, like other regions of ...

  • Highway and Urban Environment

    Today, half of the world’s population lives in urban areas and rapid urbanisation is expected to continue in the next decades. The growth of urban areas around the world presents many challenges and needs to be supported by the development of adequate and sustainable infrastructures. The Highway and Urban Environment Symposium (Nicosia, Cyprus, ...

  • Atmospheric Measurements during POPCORN - Characterisation of the Photochemistry over a Rural Area

    Present policy issues concern the reduction of ozone levels by controlling its precursors, NOx and volatile organic compounds (VOC). VOC are emitted from anthropogenic and biogenic sources. Whereas our understanding of VOC emissions from anthropogenic sources has advanced significantly in recent years, there is still a lack of knowledge ...

  • Reactive Nitrogen in the Environment: Too much or too little of a good thing

    About 40 percent of the human population depends upon food production made possible by synthetic nitrogen fertilizers.Combustion of fossil fuels adds more reactive nitrogen to air, water and soil. This distortion of the global nitrogen cycle due to excessive reactive nitrogen in the environment, while raising agricultural yields, causes ...

  • Road Pricing, the Economy and the Environment

    Economic growth and globalisation create traffic growth, leading to congestion, which again increases travel times and costs. Traffic growth also increases CO2 emissions, air pollution, accidents, and noise. So, clearly there is a need to manage traffic, taking into account that there is a need for transportation; hence it cannot be restricted ...

  • Integrated Regional Risk Assessment

    Over recent years there has been an increasing awareness of the risks of locating hazardous industries near heavily populated, environmentally sensitive areas. This new awareness demands a novel approach to safety planning for hazardous industries; one that looks at the problem from the point of view of integrated regional risk assessment ...
