  • 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).” ...

  • High levels of air pollution to spread across UK

    As high levels of air pollution are reported across the UK, NPL's role is to make sure that the measurements of pollutant concentrations are as reliable as possible, so that the right warnings can be given and the most appropriate actions taken. The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) manages much of the infrastructure in place to monitor air pollution around the UK, which helps to provide public ...

  • Mexico City the Model Megacity for Pollution Study

    As one of the world's biggest urban sprawls and home to some of the planet's worst pollution Mexico City makes the ideal subject for a science experiment on a grand scale. Mexico City A team from the USA's National Centre for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) will be leading one of the most complex research projects ever to look at atmospheric chemistry to track the changes in air pollution as ...

  • Human pollution drives weekday southeast storms

    Summertime storms in the southeastern United States drop more rainfall midweek than on weekends, and NASA scientists say air pollution from human activities, such as emissions from traffic, businesses and factories, is likely driving that trend. The link between rainfall and the day of the week is evident in data from NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite, known as TRMM. 'It ...

Both initiatives are funded by EuropeAid, EU – China Environmental Governance ...

  • Measuring the impact of air quality management

    Dust from mineral deposition sites and transportation from mines has made an imprint on the urban air in Callao, Peru. When measures were introduced to modernise mineral management, the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, SMHI, was commissioned to design a new station network for measuring the air quality. Situated in a central location at the port of Callao, Peru, there ...

  • Traffic pollution associated with risk of developing type 2 diabetes

    Long-term exposure to traffic-related air particle pollution is linked with type 2 diabetes, a new study in Germany has found. Furthermore, the study found that people living close to busy roads were at greater risk of developing the disease than those living further away. Air pollution has been linked to a number of health problems, including heart, circulatory and lung diseases. It has also ...

  • Container ports ease away from polluting diesel fuel

    Air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping are bad and getting worse, finds a new study of U.S. ports. Yet, cleaner fuel programs to counteract the pollution problem are progressing now at several of the ports under study, particularly in California. Oceangoing container ships make more than 10,000 visits to ports in the United States each year, burning heavy bunker ...
