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)

Elastomeric coatings for use in power-station desulphurisation units

Power Engineering Journal, 1988

In the 1970s the fight against acid corrosion in power station flues led to the development of a fluoroelastomer coating, known as CXL 2000. This coating is lightweight, elastic, durable, heatproof and easy to apply. The author looks at the use of CXL 2000 at the Drax power station desulphurisation units.<<ETX>>

  • An adaptation of the GAIA visualization method for cartography

    Dimensionality reduction has always been important within disciplines that focus on visual representation of multivariate information. In the case of cartography this has been achieved several times by the use of statistics charts and diagrams, but these are limited in the number of components that can be combined in a single glyph. On the other hand, Multicriteria Decision Aid (MCDA) has developed tools to visually represent multidimensional information, yet these cannot be directly applied on geographical maps. In this paper we present a way to adapt the GAIA visualization tool to the representation and comparison of multicriteria profiles on maps. The process involves the use of a Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and the conversion of its result by applying a HSV color chart. We illustrate this process by applying it to two case studies: an evaluation of the Human Development Index (HDI) and of the Environmental Performance Index (EPI) of the European countries.

  • Retrieval of PM<inf>2.5</inf> using ground-based data in beijing area

    Over the past few years, regional air pollution has frequently occurred in Mid-Eastern China, especially in Beijing. As the primary pollutants in urban air, atmospheric particulate matter (PM) not only leads to the decrease of atmospheric visibility, but also increases the mortality and morbidity of respiratory system diseases. In order to estimate the concentration, distribution and other properties of PM2.5, a physical model is used. In building model, AOD at 550nm, the Effective Radius, ground-based PM2.5 data, the relative humidity (RH) and boundary layer height (PBL) data are used, pollutant concentration and PM characteristics are taken into account comprehensively to build the retrieval model for near surface concentration of PM2.5. The result shows that the correlation coefficient (R2) of retrieval and ground-based PM2.5 is greater than 0.60, showing this method is possible for retrieving PM2.5 in Beijing area.

  • Study on Roadside Air Pollution Caused by BTEX Compounds in Beijing

    The concentrations of BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, m,p -xylenes and o-xylene) were monitored at roadsides of three kinds of urban road (open road, cross road and street canyon) in Beijing during 2008-2009. Each sampling was taken with the change of traffic volume at 7:30, 11:30, 14:30 and 17:30. Air samples were pre-concentrated on Tenax-TA tubes, which were analyzed by a GC system coupled with FID in laboratory after thermal desorption. This study presents the contamination status, temporal and spatial variations of BTEX in ambient air. During the monitoring period, diurnal average mass concentration of BTEX was 8.8-80.0 μg/m3, and exhibited two peaks. The highest mass concentration of BTEX reached 229.69 μg/m3in summer while the lowest appeared in autumn. The air of street canyon had the highest concentration compared to the other two kinds of road. We also chose Guangzhou as the control city, which had a higher concentration of BTEX.

  • The media and government officials: environmental policy communication

    The media play an important role in connecting citizens to government officials. Much of what citizens learn about environmental policy making and implementation is learned through media coverage of government actions. We have evidence to suggest that the media can influence citizens' perceptions of government, but we know less about the media's dependence on government. The paper is meant to extend our knowledge about media/government relations by studying media coverage of one environmental policy, Superfund, over a ten year period.
