  • Quantifying air quality in Cambridge by combining sensors with computer modelling

    CERC have been collaborating on a project to study ambient air quality across Cambridge using a large number of sensor nodes and computer modelling. 20 AQMesh sensor pods have been placed at key points around Cambridge (see top picture), measuring air quality in near real time. Comparisons against a reference instrument give very encouraging results, as shown in a ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...
