  • Application of a Lagrangian particle model to the source apportionment for primary macropollutants in Taranto area (South Italy)

    A modelling system has been applied to estimate the annual contribution to the total concentrations of different pollutant sources in Taranto, one of the most industrialized areas in Italy. Industrial sources, traffic, domestic heating and harbour emissions have been taken into account. Modelling system includes 3-dimensional meteorological models SWIFT-SURFPRO with the Lagrangian particle ...

  • Further insights into the composition, source and toxicity of pahs in size‐resolved PM in a megacity in China

    Concentrations of PM10 and PM2.5 and 16 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were measured. The average concentrations of PM10 and PM2.5 reached 209.75 μg/m3 and 141.87 μg/m3; and those of ΣPAHs were 41.46 ng/m3 for PM10 and 36.77 ng/m3 for PM2.5. The mass ratio concentrations were 219.23 μg/g and 311.01 μg/g in PM10 and PM2.5, respectively. Three sources and their contributions for PAHs ...

  • Local PM10 source apportionment for non-attainment areas in Slovakia

    The method used for the PM10 source apportionment in 18 air quality management areas (AQMAs) in Slovakia is presented, as well as the results of the study. Local PM10 emissions include traffic emissions, local seasonal heating sources from residential housing, industrial and point sources, and fugitive sources. Mathematical modelling has been performed using CALPUFF model, driven by ...

  • Chemical and morphological study of PM
    10
    and PM
    2.5
    in Pune, India

    PM10 and PM2.5 ambient samples were collected by a particulate sampler (APM 550, Envirotech) in the Department of Chemistry, University of Pune, India. Exposed filters were used to determine the mass, ionic composition and morphology of fine PM. The mean PM10 and ...

  • Air quality maps of NO2 and PM10 for the region including Stavanger, Sandnes, Randaberg and Sola (Nord-Jæren) - Documentation of methodology

    Introduction and background This report provides detailed background documentation of the air quality modelling and mapping activities carried out at NILU for the mapping of PM10 and NO2 in the Nord-Jæren region. This documentation supports the ‘summary report’ (in Norwegian) provided to Statens Vegvesen region west (NILU report TR 57/2013) entitled ...

  • What is sustainable air quality?

    For 40 years or more, air quality policy has been based on the paradigm of the air quality standard as a uniform criterion of acceptable environmental degradation, built on the foundations of the precautionary principle. However, developments in health science have undermined some of the underlying assumptions of this paradigm whilst technological emission controls have been offset by growing ...

  • Study of vehicular emissions with reference to Pakistan's National Environmental Quality Standards: case study of District Swat, North of Pakistan

    This study was conducted during 2011–2012 with the objective to assess the ambient air quality in the surroundings of a newly constructed road in relation to Pakistan's Environmental Quality Standard (Pak–NEQS). The area was monitored twice, before and during the construction, to determine levels of sulphur dioxide, nitrous oxide, carbon monoxide, and PM10 (particulate matter). A ...

  • Atmospheric concentration and fluxes of trace elements in Visakhapatnam City of India

    Airborne PM10 samples were collected during winter and summer at three different sites in a coastal city, Visakhapatnam, India. Average individual trace element concentrations fluctuated between 19 ng m−3 (Cd) and 4,802 ng m−3 (Zn). Average trace element concentrations for winter were observed ...
