In the early 1990s, it was projected that annual SO2 emissions in Asia might grow to 80-110 Tg yr(-1) by 2020. Based on new high-resolution estimates from 1975 to 2000, we calculate that SO2 emissions in Asia might grow only to 40-45 Tg yr(-1) by 2020. The main reason for this lower estimate is a decline of SO2 emissions from 1995 to 2000 in China, which(More)
An intercomparison study involving eight long-range transport models for sulfur deposition in East Asia has been initiated. The participating models included Eulerian and Lagrangian frameworks, with a wide variety of vertical resolutions and numerical approaches. Results from this study, in which models used common data sets for emissions, meteorology, and(More)
This paper reports the results of an integrated assessment of traffic impact on a tourist-popular high altitude region which includes mountain passes and road tunnels. A modeling system for air quality assessment and management has been established and revised. The system has been used to evaluate the impact of traffic due to the re-opening of the Mont(More)
Asia is undergoing rapid urbanization resulting in increasing air pollution threats in its cities. The contribution of megacities to sulfur emissions and pollution in Asia is studied over a 25-year period (1975–2000) using a multi-layer Lagrangian puff transport model. Asian megacities cover o2% of the land area but emit B16% of the total anthropogenic(More)
EXTENDED ABSTRACT In 2002, the Italian Ministry of the Environment decided to sponsor the project presented by ENEA for the development of the national Integrated Assessment Modeling system (the MINNI Project). The objective of the project is to support the policy makers in the elaboration and assessment of air pollution policies at international, national(More)
Previous reports focusing on the high prevalence of voice disorders in teachers have suggested that vocal loading might be the main causal factor. The aim of our study was to assess the prevalence of voice disorders in a sample of primary school teachers and evaluate possible cofactors. Our sample was composed of 157 teachers (155 females, mean age 46(More)
