  • 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).” ...

  • Nepal, Bhutan to closely monitor air pollutants

    The Himalayan countries of Nepal and Bhutan will, in 2013, have two permanent air monitoring observatories set up by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) as part of a programme to reduce black carbon and other short-lived climate-forcing pollutants (SLCPs). There has been ...

  • IMMISmt – monitoring system for air pollution and noise in cities

    IMMISmt is a real time monitoring system for air quality and noise. Based on online traffic data, measurements of air quality stations and weather data, IMMISmt calculates traffic induced emissions, background and total pollutant concentrations as well as noise levels within the streets as, e. g., hourly mean values. To do so, IMMISmt combines various models which are validated and widely used in ...

  • Cyclists map Antwerp air pollution with on-bike monitors

    Cyclists with pollution monitors and GPS trackers attached to their bicycles have produced detailed maps of Antwerp’s air quality, as part of a recent study. Their data show that a gap of just a few metres between cycle lanes and cars significantly reduces cyclists’ risk of inhaling high levels of ultrafine particle pollution. Personal ‘mobile monitoring’ is attracting ...

  • $3 billion market for air pollution monitoring, sampling and process control

    The world market for stack continuous emissions monitors (CEMs) will be $900 million this year. However, if one takes into account the additional revenues for ambient monitoring systems, intermittent stack sampling and process control using pollutant analyzers, the market is above $3 billion. This is the latest forecast in the McIlvaine Air Pollution Monitoring and Sampling World Markets. Some ...

  • New Yakima Valley air monitor measures particulate pollution

    The Yakima Regional Clean Air Agency will begin operating a new air quality monitor to measure fine particulate matter in the Sunnyside region of the Yakima Valley. The monitor, which will gather data on particulate matter for a year, will allow regulatory agencies to develop effective strategies to protect air quality in the Yakima Valley and inform burn ban decisions. The monitor is located at ...

  • Italian Cruise Ship to Carry Air Pollution Monitoring Station

    BRUSSELS, Belgium, November 3, 2005 (ENS) - The European Commission and the Italian cruise line Costa Crociere have launched a new way of monitoring human generated pollution of the atmosphere that the Commission says is essential to improving understanding of climate change. The holiday guests cruising the Mediterranean will probably never see it, but an automatic air pollution monitoring ...

  • Air pollution linked to Cardiac arrests

    Researchers in New York have linked exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) with an increased risk of cardiac arrest. While particulate matter has previously been strongly associated with long term heart disease, this is the first time that it has been linked with sudden cardiac arrest. The team, led by Dr. Robert A Silverman ( Long Island Jewish Medical Centre, New York), compared readings ...

  • Flexible approaches to managing air pollution

    Managing air quality has become an increasingly complex partnership between regional, national and local bodies in Europe. A recent study explores the development and achievements of urban air quality management over recent decades, from controlling emissions at source to new, flexible approaches, based on managing risks associated with impacts on health and the environment. The future of air ...

  • Air quality sensors track pollution

    Original story at MIT News Glimpses of blue sky are becoming a rare sight in Delhi, India’s capital, particularly in wintertime, when a thick white haze smothers the city. David Hagan, an MIT PhD candidate studying atmospheric chemistry and a Fellow in the MIT Tata Center for ...

  • Australian bushfires cloud air pollution problem, monitoring shows

    In a presentation to the GREENHOUSE 2009 conference in Perth this week, CSIRO’s Dr Mick Meyer said measurements taken at the Bayside Air Quality Station in Melbourne’s south-east during the 2003 and 2006 bushfires provided a guide to what could be experienced as the climate changes. “While air quality standards generally appear to be improving, a future issue will be quality during times of ...

  • Trees could be used to monitor air pollution simply and cheaply

    It may be possible to use trees to monitor levels of air pollution in cities, new research suggests. A Belgian study found evidence that leaves of urban trees change both chemically and physiologically when exposed to different levels of air pollution. If these changes are carefully quantified, trees could provide cheap and widespread ‘bio-indicators’, the study’s authors ...

  • Air pollution monitoring market to rise 20% in 2010, says new research

    The world market for stack and ambient continuous monitoring plus periodic monitoring and other related services will rise to US$2.2 billion in 2010.  This is a 20 percent increase over the projected 2009 market.  The rapid expansion in CO2 measurement investment and the increased activity for stack monitoring in Asia will account for most of the increase.  These are the ...

  • Perfect Storm for Air Monitors

    Following the Supreme Court’s recent judgement, the new Government will have to take urgent action to reduce urban pollution and to instigate monitoring regimes that are able to demonstrate success or failure of the new measures. This has happened at an ideal time for Air Monitors, who have recently launched technology that is able to do so at a fraction of the cost of traditional monitors. ...

  • Researchers Call for More Emphasis on Indoor Pollution Monitoring

    Indoor pollution is killing people at rates significantly higher than outdoor pollution, and the general public has for years been none the wiser new research reveals. According to a recent publication by leading global air filtration specialist Camfil, many people are unaware of the massive number of indoor pollution related deaths that occur annually. According to the World Health Organization, ...
