  • Air pollution`s impact on health: a European and N. American analysis

    A team of investigators has examined the effects of air pollution on human health using the databases of earlier studies from Europe, the United States and Canada. They concluded that PM10 and ozone are associated with an increase in mortality. Different modelling approaches do not significantly affect the results. Partly-funded by the EU, the APHENA project1 investigated whether the technique ...

  • New Swiss device to monitor carbon dioxide

    A new laser device installed on the Jungfraujoch in Switzerland will help scientists determine the source of carbon dioxide, a major greenhouse gas, on a real-time basis. Until now climatologists tracking carbon dioxide levels in high alpine regions have had to rely on individual samples painstakingly gathered and tested in distance laboratories. The site already hosts a pollution-monitoring ...

  • Beijing air quality improves on day 4 of Olympic Games

    Beijing's air quality significantly improved over the last two days, with the sky clearly visible today after rains on 10 and 11 August washed away the pollution across the city. In what could be a sign that the measures taken by the Beijing authorities are working, official data measured an Air Pollution Index (API) of 32 on 12 August. This is far below the benchmark set by the Chinese ...

  • Tourist cruise ships increase atmospheric pollution in the Arctic

    Levels of air pollution significantly increase on the island of Svalbard in the Norwegian Arctic when tourist cruise ships are present, according to a recent study. With shipping levels rising in the region, the researchers recommend that stricter emissions regulations are introduced in order to limit the impact of pollution on the Arctic environment. Ship traffic is a major source of ...

  • Towards a common air quality assessment method

    Air pollution indices are tools that can be used to compare air quality in different geographical regions. In a new study, researchers evaluated the 'BC indices', primarily designed to assess health risks from particular pollutants over a given time and space, to compare air quality in Italy, Germany and Poland. The indices could be useful for policy makers developing pollution control ...

  • Air quality linked to wellbeing at a regional level in Europe

    The impact of air quality on public welfare is important to policy development. However, it is difficult to make a clear link between the two when air pollution tends to be reported at a country level and wellbeing is an individual measure. A new study takes a step further towards linking the two by analysing regional level air quality across the EU and relating it to levels of life satisfaction. ...

  • BAM1020 Real-Time Ambient Particulate Monitor Wins MCERTS Approval

    On behalf of Met One Instruments (USA), air quality monitoring specialists, Enviro Technology were presented with an MCERTS certificate for the BAM-1020 continuous ambient particulate monitor at the recent annual MCERTS 2011.  Under strict UK and European laws, businesses and organisations which release emissions into the air must carefully monitor their discharge to the environment. To this ...

  • California Creates North America`s First Economy-wide Carbon Market

    Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) applauded the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for casting an historic, unanimous vote today to create the first economy-wide carbon market in North America and put a mandatory declining cap on pollution that causes global climate change. Today's vote marked the formal adoption of a cap-and-trade ...

  • A link between air travel and deaths on the ground

    The atmosphere is full of natural and man-made chemicals, including emissions from fuel combustion and byproducts of living organisms. Many of these chemicals combine in the atmosphere to form tiny solid and liquid particles known as "fine particulate matter" that are 2.5 micrometers or smaller (the average human hair is about 70 micrometers in diameter, by comparison). While it's not clear ...

  • BAM1020 real-time ambient particulate monitor wins MCERTS approval

    On behalf of Met One Instruments (USA), air quality monitoring specialists, Enviro Technology were presented with an MCERTS certificate for the BAM-1020 continuous ambient particulate monitor at the recent annual MCERTS 2011 Conference & Exhibition Gala Dinner in Telford. Under strict UK and European laws, businesses and organisations which release emissions into the air must carefully ...

  • Air pollution on track to exceed limits at four out of five Breathe London sites

    Environmental Defense Fund Europe (EDFE) together with Mayor Sadiq Khan have released the second wave of data from Breathe London, an ambitious collaborative project to measure and map air pollution across the capital. In addition to nitrogen dioxide (NO2) measurements from the network’s 100+ stationary pods, the interactive map now includes preliminary data from the Google Street View car ...

  • A cost effective, compact solution to air quality measurement

    The E4100 is a revolutionary air quality transmitter that measures up to four most common gaseous pollutants and basic meteorological data of ambient air. Measurement data is sent wirelessly to a web-based database or locally via a serial interface. Small and elegantly designed, the E4100 is excellent for monitoring air quality in urban areas and around industry. It is the first air quality ...

  • Assessing the drop in London road traffic emissions during COVID-19 restrictions

    The restrictions imposed by the UK Government to limit the spread of COVID-19 have led to unprecedented reductions in the volume of road traffic; the latest Government figures suggest that vehicle use has dropped to 40% of normal levels. Discerning the impact of this on air quality in our towns and cities is difficult however, because air quality is heavily dependent on the weather. In ...
