Intra-urban variability of the intake fraction from multiple emission sources.

Atmos Pollut Res 2018 Nov;9(6):1184-1193

Systems Research Institute, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland.

Background: Ambient air pollution and associated adverse health effects are among most acute environmental problems in many cities worldwide. The intake fraction () approach can be applied for evaluating the health benefits of reducing emissions, especially when rapid decisions are needed. Intake fraction is a metric that represents emission-to-intake relationship and characterizes abatement of exposure potential attributed to specific emission sources. Read More

Evaluation of PM surface concentrations simulated by Version 1 of NASA's MERRA Aerosol Reanalysis over Europe.

Atmos Pollut Res 2017 Mar 3;8(2):374-382. Epub 2016 Nov 3.

Département de géographie, Université Laval, Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.

This article evaluates the concentrations of particulate matter (PM) and some of its chemical speciation such as sulfate, organic carbon, black carbon and sea salt particles simulated at the surface by Version 1 of the Aerosol Reanalysis of NASA's Modern-Era Retrospective Analysis for Research and Application (MERRAero) over Europe. Measurement data from the European Monitoring and Evaluation Programme database were used. The concentrations of coarse PM (PM), fine PM (PM), sulfate and black carbon particles are overall well simulated, despite a slight and consistent overestimation of PM concentration, and a slight and consistent underestimation of PM and sulfate concentrations throughout most of the year.

Source Identification of Coarse Particles in the Desert Southwest, USA using Positive Matrix Factorization.

Atmos Pollut Res 2017 Sep;8(5):873-884

U.S. EPA, Office of Research and Development, 944 E. Harmon Ave, Rm. 235, Las Vegas, NV 89119,

The Desert Southwest Coarse Particulate Matter Study was undertaken to further our understanding of the spatial and temporal variability and sources of fine and coarse particulate matter (PM) in rural, arid, desert environments. Sampling was conducted between February 2009 and February 2010 in Pinal County, AZ near the town of Casa Grande where PM concentrations routinely exceed the U.S. Read More

A Reduced Form Model for Ozone Based on Two Decades of CMAQ Simulations for the Continental United States.

Atmos Pollut Res 2017 Mar;8(2):275-284

AMAD/NERL, U.S.E.P.A., Research Triangle Park, NC, USA.

A Reduced Form Model (RFM) is a mathematical relationship between the inputs and outputs of an air quality model, permitting estimation of additional modeling without costly new regional-scale simulations. A 21-year Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) simulation for the continental United States provided the basis for the RFM developed in this study. Predictors included the principal component scores (PCS) of emissions and meteorological variables, while the predictand was the monthly mean of daily maximum 8-hour CMAQ ozone for the ozone season at each model grid.

Source Apportionment and Elemental Composition of PM2.5 and PM10 in Jeddah City, Saudi Arabia.

Atmos Pollut Res 2012 Jul;3(3):331-340

Eckerd College, St. Petersburg, Florida, USA.

This paper presents the first comprehensive investigation of PM2.5 and PM10 composition and sources in Saudi Arabia. We conducted a multi-week multiple sites sampling campaign in Jeddah between June and September, 2011, and analyzed samples by XRF. Read More

Effect based monitoring of seasonal ambient air exposures in Australia sampled by PUF passive air samplers.

Atmos Pollut Res 2010 Jan;1(1):50-58

The University of Queensland, Entox (The National Research Centre for Environmental Toxicology), Brisbane QLD 4108, Australia.

There has been relatively little bioanalytical effect based monitoring conducted using samples derived from polyurethane foam (PUF) passive air samplers. Combining these techniques may provide a more convenient and cost effective means of monitoring the potential for biological effects resulting from exposure to complex mixtures in a range of scenarios. Seasonal polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) levels were monitored at sites around Australia using direct chemical analysis. Read More
