  • Optimization of hydrometric monitoring network in urban drainage systems using information theory

    Regular and continuous monitoring of urban runoff in both quality and quantity aspects is of great importance for controlling and managing surface runoff. Due to the considerable costs of establishing new gauges, optimization of the monitoring network is essential. This research proposes an approach for site selection of new discharge stations in urban areas, based on entropy theory in ...

  • Geostatistically based optimization of a rainfall monitoring network extension: case of the climatically heterogeneous Tunisia

    Rainfall data are an essential input for many simulation models. In fact, these latter have a decisive role in the development and application of rational water policies. Since the accuracy of the simulation depends strongly on the available data, the task of optimizing the monitoring network is of great importance. In this paper, an application is presented aiming at the evaluation of a ...

  • Can Wifi Radio Meet Your Remote Monitoring Needs?

    Some resources are easy to keep tabs on. They are located conveniently close to monitoring equipment and power supplies, which are, in turn, easily integrated into your facility’s management systems. Press a button or click a mouse, and all you need to know pops up on a screen. It’s the ideal scenario, really. Other resources, as many of you are keenly aware, are much more difficult ...

  • 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 ...

  • Evaluation of detection abilities of monitoring networks using multiple assessment criteria

    The problem of evaluation of radiation monitoring network quality is considered. The comparison of possible network configurations is performed on simulated experiments where a twin model is used to simulate observed data. An assimilation procedure based on the particle filter approach is run for each configuration of the network. Specifically, multiple realisations of segmented Gaussian plume ...

  • Status of black carbon monitoring in ambient air in Europe

    Black carbon (BC) is increasingly discussed in science and environmental policy areas as an example of an air pollutant that affects both human health and contributes to climate change (e.g. WHO, 2012; UNEP/WMO, 2011; Bond et al., 2013; IPCC, 2013). In order to be able to make comparable measurements of BC in ambient air and to relate BC monitoring to health impacts and climate change it is ...

  • Entrepreneurs’ gender, age and education affecting their networks in private and public spheres: Denmark, Middle East and North Africa

    The purpose is to account for entrepreneurs’ networking in private and public spheres, as influenced by gender, age and education in the context of culture. The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor has surveyed 17,742 entrepreneurs’ networking for advice in Denmark and 14 countries representative of the Middle East and North Africa. Analyses show that entrepreneurs are networking in the private ...

  • Composition of networks around entrepreneurs: cross-national comparisons in the Middle East and North Africa

    This paper investigates the composition of networks around entrepreneurs in the MENA region and how this composition differs amongst the 14 countries with regards to the size and diversity of the networks used at various stages of venture development. The findings indicate significant difference between entrepreneurs at various stages of venture development for network size and network ...

  • How Much Does My Landfill Leak?

    The question of how much landfills leak might be the most contentious question in the solid waste industry and the one with the most elusive answer. Leakage can be predicted using models of varying levels of sophistication, but modeling relies on accurate data for hole frequency and size. Published statistics for hole size and frequency vary widely and most of the published data is drastically ...

  • Information theory applied to evaluate the discharge monitoring network of the Magdalena River

    The acquisition of good hydrologic information is an important issue in water management since it is the basis of decisions concerning the allocation of water resources to different users. However, sufficient data are often not available to describe the behaviour of such systems, especially in developing countries, where monitoring networks are inappropriately designed, poorly operated or are ...

  • Multiple sensor fault detection and isolation of an air quality monitoring network using RBF-NLPCA model

    This paper presents a data-driven method based on non-linear principal component analysis to detect and isolate multiple sensor faults. The RBF-NLPCA model is obtained by combining a principal curve algorithm and two three-layer radial basis function (RBF) networks. The reconstruction approach for multiple sensors is proposed in the non-linear case and successfully applied for multiple sensor ...

  • Information rich monitoring of interoperating services in privacy enabled B2B networks

    We examine how the Liberty Alliance framework for a privacy-enabled Business to Business (B2B) network of interoperating services called a 'Circle of Trust' (CoT) can be leveraged to monitor activity across the entire network for the purposes of safeguarding and improving services. A proposed Audit Trail Service (ATS) is analysed as a first step in monitoring activity within a CoT. Then, a ...

  • U.S. EPA Propses Revisions to Ozone NAAQS

    In May 2008, states, environmental groups, and industry groups filed petitions with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals (Court) for review of the 2008 ozone standards.  In March 2009, the Court granted a U.S. EPA request to stay the litigation so that the Obama administration could review the standards and determine whether they should be reconsidered. On September 16, 2009, U.S. EPA announced ...
