A Spatial Analysis with New Satellite Data
Traffic, Air Pollution, and Distributional Impacts in Dar Es Salaam: A Spatial Analysis with New Satellite Data
Air pollution from vehicular traffic is a major source of health damage in urban areas. The problems of urban traffic and pollution are essentially geographic, because their incidence and impactsExpand
Ecological determinants of respiratory health: Examining associations between asthma emergency department visits, diesel particulate matter, and public parks and open space in Los Angeles, California
This is the first study to identify AEDV reductions in census tracts with higher concentrations of PPOS, and indicates that reducing DPM and increasing PPOS may serve to improve asthma outcomes, particularly in low-income communities of color. Expand
A study to reduce atmospheric emissions of an existing natural gas dehydration plant using multiple thermodynamic models
Using Aspen Plus, operating parameters of an existing triethylene glycol natural gas dehydration plant including the solvent circulation rate, stripping gas flow rate, regenerator reboiler duty,Expand
A review of the potentiality of biochar technology to abate emissions of particulate matter originating from agriculture
Agricultural operations and processes generate copious quantities of particulate matter (PM) both directly and indirectly through emissions of PM precursor gases with dire consequences for humanExpand
Impact of the COVID-19 induced lockdown measures on PM2.5 concentration in USA
There is a statistically significant reduction in levels of SARS-CoV-2 concentration levels in 48 core-based statistical areas of the United States during the pre and post-lockdown period of January to June, 2020. Expand
Innovative bitumen technology to reduce impact on air quality
With increasing environmental awareness, air quality is a topic of intense discussion and focus with many environment authorities/agencies setting targets aiming to improve air quality. Reducing theExpand
Life cycle assessment and water footprint scarcity of yogurt
The dairy sector presents various environmental impacts and a transition towards more ecological processes is required. This might be achieved through life cycle assessment, a tool used to evaluateExpand
PM2.5 Forecasting Model Using a Combination of Deep Learning and Statistical Feature Selection
The study points out that chemical processed model of particulate matter 10 micrometers or less in diameter (PM10), Sulfur D dioxide (SO2), and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) have the highest accuracy or lowest Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) and more short training and testing time among the other models.

Air pollution levels rebounded immediately after the number of infections dropped, which indicates a swift recovery of human activities and insights into the implementation of environmental policies in China and other developing countries are provided. Expand


Effect of vehicle characteristics on unpaved road dust emissions
This paper presents PM 10 fugitive dust emission factors for a range of vehicles types and examines the influence of vehicle and wake characteristics on the strength of emissions from an unpavedExpand
Day-of-Week Behavior of Atmospheric Ozone in Three U.S. Cities
A weak correlation between O3 concentrations and VOC/NOx ratios in Philadelphia suggests the impact of transported O3, which is formed in upwind VOC-sensitive locations that may be hundreds of kilometers away. Expand

Abstract Day-of-week mean ambient concentrations were computed for six high-cancer-risk toxic air contaminants (TACs): 1,3-butadiene, benzene, acetaldehyde, formalde-hyde, carbon tetrachlorideExpand
Day-of-Week Patterns of Particulate Matter and Its Chemical Components at Selected Sites in California
Day-of-week variations in concentrations of particulate matter (PM) in California are analyzed to determine whether volatile organic compounds and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) are not only precursors of ozone but also of secondary PM. Expand
Diurnal and Weekday Variations in the Source Contributions of Ozone Precursors in California’s South Coast Air Basin
Lower NOx emissions from diesel exhaust can be a major factor causing lower NOx mixing ratios and higher NMHC/NOx ratios on weekends, as demonstrated in the field study conducted in the Los Angeles area during fall 2000. Expand
Evolution of the Magnitude and Spatial Extent of the Weekend Ozone Effect in California’s South Coast Air Basin, 1981–2000
Abstract Since the mid-1970s, ozone (O3) levels in portions of California’s South Coast Air Basin (SoCAB) on weekends have been as high as or higher than levels on weekdays, even though emissions ofExpand
Weekday versus Weekend Activity Patterns for Ozone Precursor Emissions in California’s South Coast Air Basin
Changes in emissions result in an increase of more than 30% in the ROG/NOx ratio on weekends compared with weekdays, which, along with lower NOx emissions, leads to increased O3 production on weekends. Expand
Weekday/Weekend Ozone Differences: What Can We Learn from Them?
A national analysis of weekday/weekend ozone (O3) differences demonstrates significant variation across the country, and the primary cause of the higher O3 on weekends is the reduction in oxides of nitrogen (NOx) emissions on weekends in a volatile organic compound (VOC)-limited chemical regime.

Estimates of the emission rates of ammonia from light-duty vehicles using standard chassis dynamometer test cycles
Abstract Emissions rates of ammonia (NH 3 ) are reported for a fleet of 39 in-use light-duty gasoline-fueled vehicles. The fleet consisted of both light-duty passenger vehicles and light-duty trucksExpand
