  • Air pollution monitoring model takes off in Australia

    “The Air Pollution Model (TAPM) increases our ability to pinpoint pollutant behaviour in a wider range of atmospheric conditions,” says CSIRO’s Dr Peter Hurley. ”Over the coming years the new model will continue to fill a gap between simple air pollution dispersion models and the much more complex earth system models such as The Australian Community Climate and Earth-System Simulator (ACCESS).” ...

  • Modelling partly to blame for air quality failures

    On 2nd November 2016 the High Court ruled in a case brought by ClientEarth, that the UK Government’s plans to tackle air pollution are illegal. The judgement said: “the Secretary of State (for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) must aim to achieve compliance (with the Air Quality Directive) by the soonest date possible, that she must choose a route to that objective which ...

  • Using models for air quality assessment and planning: a guide

    Computer models are increasingly used for estimating air quality or forecasting changes in pollution levels. Various different models are currently used across Europe. The new FAIRMODE reference guide aims to make these models comparable, well documented and validated in order to achieve reliable results. In the past, assessment and reporting of air quality was largely based on ...

  • Workshop Reviewing Air Quality Modelling Assessments for Planning

    CERC are holding a one-day workshop on reviewing air quality modelling assessments, designed for local authorities and anyone involved in reviewing air quality modelling for planning applications. It will consider general principles of air quality modelling with a focus on the ADMS models. The date of the workshop is Wednesday 8th February 2017, at the Pitt Building, Cambridge. Early-bird ...

  • EPA releases air quality model to study harmful air pollution / model will help scientists protect public health

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a new version of its Community Multi-scale Air Quality model (CMAQ) that uses up-to-the minute meteorology and air chemistry data to determine how weather conditions affect pollution, and how pollution can affect and change weather. Version 5.0 of CMAQ allows scientists to analyze air quality at smaller, finer-resolution settings for ...

  • Air pollution modelling could help predict algal blooms

    Models that predict how nitrogen from the air is deposited in the sea could be useful in predicting algal blooms. Based on the knowledge that excess nitrogen increases algal growth rates, researchers simulated nitrogen deposition in the North Sea and suggested that, using predicted weather data, it might be possible to adapt this approach to predict algal blooms. Algae populations are kept under ...

  • Free toolkit for air quality model evaluation now available

    The Myair Toolkit for Model Evaluation is now available to download free from the CERC website. The Myair Toolkit enables you to assess the performance of an air quality model against in situ observed data and produces a range of statistics and attractive report-ready graphs. As well as analysis of predicted ...

  • Air quality forecasts for China

    With less than a month remaining before the Beijing Olympics, Chinese officials have introduced a series of measures to improve air quality for the Games. A new tool has been installed in the capital city to allow the Chinese to monitor the effectiveness of these efforts. Poor air quality could pose problems for the Olympic athletes and hinder the performance of those competing outdoors in ...

  • A layer of cool, healthy air

    Stratum ventilation systems have been touted as a much more energy efficient system for cooling buildings such as school rooms and offices in hotter climes based on the provisions of the recent ANSI/ASHRAE 55-2010. They may also reduce the risk of the spread of airborne diseases according to a study to be published early next year in the journal World Review of Science, Technology and Sustainable ...

  • Are TGFs hazardous to air travelers?

    Instruments scanning outer space for cataclysmic explosions called gamma-ray bursts are detecting intense flashes of gamma-ray energy right here in the friendly skies of Earth. These terrestrial gamma-ray flashes, or TGFs, blast through thunderstorms close to the altitude where commercial airliners fly. In fact, they could be too close for comfort. In a recent study,* scientists estimated that ...
