Operational air pollution forecasts from European to local scale
Abstract A new operational air pollution forecast system, THOR, has been developed at the National Environmental Research Institute, Denmark. The integrated system consists of a series of airExpand

Feather lead concentrations and (207)Pb/(206)Pb ratios reveal lead exposure history of California Condors (Gymnogyps californianus).
Lead poisoning is a primary factor impeding the survival and recovery of the critically endangered California Condor (Gymnogyps californianus). However, the frequency and magnitude of lead exposureExpand

The Pannonian plain as a source of Ambrosia pollen in the Balkans
This study aims to find likely sources of Ambrosia pollen recorded during 2007 at five pollen-monitoring sites in central Europe: Novi Sad, Ruma, Negotin and Nis (Serbia) and Skopje (Macedonia).Expand

Long-term exposure to fine particulate matter and incidence of diabetes in the Danish Nurse Cohort.
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS It has been suggested that air pollution may increase the risk of type 2 diabetes but data on particulate matter with diameter <2.5μm (PM2.5) are inconsistent. We examined theExpand

Examining Ambrosia pollen episodes at Poznań (Poland) using back-trajectory analysis
The pollen grains of Ambrosia spp. are considered to be important aeroallergens in parts of southern and central Europe. Back-trajectories have been analysed with the aim of finding the likelyExpand

An inventory of tree species in Europe—An essential data input for air pollution modelling
Abstract We present a detailed tree species inventory covering Europe, parts of Africa and parts of Asia. The inventory contains 39 groups of species that are important for biogenic VOCs or pollenExpand

Are the birch trees in Southern England a source of Betula pollen for North London?
Birch pollen is highly allergenic. Knowledge of daily variations, atmospheric transport and source areas of birch pollen is important for exposure studies and for warnings to the public, especiallyExpand
