Air pollution

View this topic in
Air pollution is the introduction of chemicals, particulate matter, or biological materials that cause harm or discomfort to humans or other living organisms, or cause damage to the natural environment or built environment, into the atmosphere. The atmosphere is a complex dynamic natural gaseous system that is essential to support life on planet Earth. (Wikipedia.org)

2011 Joint Urban Remote Sensing Event (JURSE)

Urban Remote Sensing is a growing research field, and many applications which were once impossible are now well established or at least promising procedures. This is due to the increasingly finer resolution of available sensors (both in the spatial and the spectral domain), but also to the extensive records of data exploitable for temporal analyses. The focus of this workshop is in applying to remotely sensed data suitable algorithms and approaches to extract information useful for applications.

  • 2009 Joint Urban Remote Sensing Event

    The conference is the major event in urban remote sensing, and aims to provide a foirum for an effective exchange of information among researchers, practictioners, users and data providers.

A Study on Operation of Photovoltaic Grid System Using Weather Forecast

Kenichi Fujii; Motoi Yamagiwa; Minoru Uehara 2011 Third International Conference on Intelligent Networking and Collaborative Systems, 2011

In keeping with green IT, we propose reusing obsolete older-model PCs as a grid to create a high performance environment consisting of ordinary PCs. However, such a grid has continuous energy requirements, which is undesirable in terms of environmental concerns, due to the increased CO2 emissions from generating the required electricity. Therefore, this study aims to realize a grid powered ...

    Sharing of location data enables numerous exciting applications, such as location-based queries, location-based social recommendations, monitoring of traffic and air pollution levels, etc. Disclosing exact user locations raises serious privacy concerns, as locations may give away sensitive information about individuals' health status, alternative lifestyles, political and religious affiliations, etc. Preserving location privacy is an essential requirement towards the successful deployment of location-based applications. These lecture notes provide an overview of the state-of-the-art in location privacy protection. A diverse body of solutions is reviewed, including methods that use location generalization, cryptographic techniques or differential privacy. The most prominent results are discussed, and promising directions for future work are identified.

    This revised edition of Taylor's classic work on the internal-combustion engine incorporates changes and additions in engine design and control that have been brought on by the world petroleum crisis, the subsequent emphasis on fuel economy, and the legal restraints on air pollution.The fundamentals and the topical organization, however, remain the same. The analytic rather than merely descriptive treatment of actual engine cycles, the exhaustive studies of air capacity, heat flow, friction, and the effects of cylinder size, and the emphasis on application have been preserved. These are the basic qualities that have made Taylor's work indispensable to more than one generation of engineers and designers of internal-combustion engines, as well as to teachers and graduate students in the fields of power, internal-combustion engineering, and general machine design.Charles Fayette Taylor is Professor of Automotive Engineering Emeritus at MIT.

  • The correlation with demographic parameters

    This chapter contains section titled: References

  • Index

    With the advent of modernity, the sharing of resources and infrastructures rapidly expanded beyond local communities into regional, national, and even transnational space -- nowhere as visibly as in Europe, with its small-scale political divisions. This volume views these shared resource spaces as the seedbeds of a new generation of technology-rich bureaucratic and transnational commons. Drawing on the theory of cosmopolitanism, which seeks to model the dynamics of an increasingly interdependent world, and on the tradition of commons scholarship inspired by the late Elinor Ostrom, the book develops a new theory of "cosmopolitan commons" that provides a framework for merging the study of technology with such issues as risk, moral order, and sustainability at levels beyond the nation-state. After laying out the theoretical framework, the book presents case studies that explore the empirical nuances: airspace as transport commons, radio broadcasting, hydropower, weather forecasting and genetic diversity as information commons, transboundary air pollution, and two "capstone" studies of interlinked, temporally layered commons: one on overlapping commons within the North Sea for freight, fishing, and fossil fuels; and one on commons for transport, salmon fishing, and clean water in the Rhine.Contributors:Håkon With Andersen, Nil Disco, Paul N. Edwards, Arne Kaijser, Eda Kranakis, Kristiina Korjonen-Kuusipuro, Tiago Saraiva, Nina WormbsThe hardcover edition does not include a dust jacket.
