  • Airport Foundation Monitoring - Iqaluit International Airport - Case Study

    The Iqaluit International Airport is undergoing a significant infrastructural upgrade to improve safety and access to the Canadian Territory of Nunavut. Traffic at the airport has grown steadily over the last three decades and the facility needs to be updated and improved to continue to serve the area. Due to the absence of paved roads, flying is a critical part of the Nunavut transportation and ...

  • Urban eddy covariance measurements reveal significant missing NOx emissions in Central Europe

    Abstract Nitrogen oxide (NOX) pollution is emerging as a primary environmental concern across Europe. While some large European metropolitan areas are already in breach of EU safety limits for NO2, this phenomenon does not seem to be only restricted to large industrialized areas anymore. Many smaller scale populated agglomerations including their surrounding ...

  • The new ViewMondo variety – also suitable for airports

    With the browser-based monitoring software ViewMondo, we offer an elegant management solution for mobile and stationary weather stations since mid-2015. Once implemented, all measuring stations can be found on a map and can be evaluated in real-time. However, over the time since the introduction of the smart software, it has gained new functions than mentioned in August 2015 – ViewMondo has ...

  • Traffic Noise Mapping in Chile

    Against this backdrop of economic change, a two-year study got underway across three Chilean cities led by the Univ. Austral. and was supported by the Chilean Ministry of the Environment. Academically titled: “Development and analysis of noise maps of three urban agglomerations using modeling software”, the study concentrated on the Chilean cities of Coquimbo – La ...

  • Tunnel Freezing and Flash Freezing Food with Nitrogen: Oxygen Monitors and Why They May Required

    New developments in cryogenic freezing are transforming the frozen food industry by making it easier to freeze all sorts of items quickly while retaining the highest nutritional value. Cryogenic and tunnel freezers are easy to use, yet they pose a hidden health risk. Learn why you may need an O2 monitor if your frozen food manufacturing facility relies on cryogenic freezers. How Cryogenic ...

  • Modeling Tip: Importing & Exporting Traffic Data in CALRoads View

    The CALINE series of models was developed to estimate pollutant concentrations from motor vehicles at roadway intersections. It includes three primary models: CALINE, CAL3QHC, and CAL3QHCR. The latter allows processing of real meteorological data (up to one year) and input of vehicular emissions, traffic volume, and signalization (ETS) data. Data reflecting traffic conditions for individual hours ...

  • Know About Tunnel and Environmental Monitoring

    Building a house may take a few months. Someone who has ever supervised the construction of a house must be aware that there are so many activities which are done for it. Now, think about the large construction projects. The roads, flyovers, railway tracks etc. we use today are result of rigorous hard work and planning undertaken by different construction companies. A large number of decisions ...

  • Soil Reinforcement: Tunnel Portals - Case Study

    Problem The A1 Autostrada, known as Autostrada del Sole (Motorway of the sun), runs for 750km from Milan to Naples, via Bologna, Florence and Rome. Not only is it the longest motorway in Italy, it is considered to be the key corridor in the country’s highway network.  To improve safety, reduce congestion and consequent environmental pollution, a new section of the A1 was proposed in ...

  • Case study - Measuring impact of traffic noise in apartment living room

    Problem An apartment on the ground floor of a two story house in the city lies close to a busy road. The living room in the apartment is facing the road, and the inhabitants are bothered by traffic noise, especially in the morning and the afternoon, when the traffic is the heaviest. Traffic noise could be clearly heard when standing in the living room. The facade facing the city ...

  • Pollutant source identification in a city district by means of a street network inverse model

    This study presents the performances of an inverse modelling approach aiming to identify position and emission rate of a localised pollutant source placed within a city district. To that purpose we combine wind tunnel experiments and an urban dispersion model. Experiments are performed in an idealised urban canopy, made up of regularly spaced blocks, and provide the pollutant concentration field ...

  • Chemical reactions at street scale using a Lagrangian particle dispersion model

    In the context of the FEDER AIRCITY project, Paris City is modelled with a 3 m resolution with the purpose of computing pollutant concentration relevant for human exposition. This project involves AIRPARIF (Ile-de-France Air Quality Monitoring Network), for emission and immission data, CEA (French Atomic and Alternative Energy Agency) for HPC availability, National Geographic Institute (IGN) for ...

  • Children’s exposure to traffic-related pollution: assessment of CO exposure in a typical school day

    This paper evaluates the exposure of four children to carbon monoxide (CO) in two different classrooms during the time spent in school in a typical school day, using a numerical modelling approach. The study is focused on an area of 550 × 550 m 2 centred at a primary school of the city of Aveiro, in central Portugal, which is located close to a road with moderate traffic and has naturally ...

  • New techniques to determine specific noise for increasing the effectiveness of continuous unattended noise monitoring systems

    Continuous, unattended noise monitoring systems can immediately alert you should noise levels exceed defined criteria. Once alerted to an exceedance, operators can act to return levels to compliance. This approach has two significant limitations. Firstly the operator can only take action after the breach has occurred and therefore systems are only able to inform owners about problems that have ...

  • Determinating the influence of different PM 10 sources on air quality in Ljubljana basin with CALPUFF dispersion model

    Ljubljana has an unfavourable geographical location in the basin, almost entirely surrounded by high hills. Winds in the basin are often weak and situations with temperature inversion are very frequent, therefore, many PM 10 daily limit value exceedances were observed in 2011. The Directive 2008/50/EC (EU, 2008) requires member states to adjust or provide new air quality plans in order to ...

  • Dietary effect on GHG emissions is hard to swallow

    The news is enough to make climate campaigners choke on their high-fibre breakfast cereal: if Americans adopted the dietary guidelines suggested by their own Department of Agriculture, greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) would actually go up by 12%. And even if Americans did what dietary ...

  • The causes of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL)

    The two most common causes of hearing loss is age and exposure to loud noise. The former we can’t do much about. The latter we can. Age As the NHS states, age is the biggest single cause of hearing loss. Problems associated with hearing and old age is known as age-related hearing loss, or ...

  • Modelling of air pollution in the area of Algiers City, Algeria

    Algiers is the political and economic capital of Algeria. The city drains a large part of the activities of the country with intense road traffic. This road traffic is the main source of air pollution, followed by industry and waste combustion. An application of the new road traffic emission model, called EMISENS, is performed to build road traffic emission inventories for the Algiers region. ...

  • Noise Pollution – More Than Just an Inconvenience

    A raft of new global studies are all pointing to how noise pollution can seriously affect your health – and you don’t need to be living directly under a flight path to be affected. Separate studies carried out over recent years claim to have found links that noise pollution can affect everything from your waist size to the weight of unborn babies and even the recovery rate of ICU ...
