Modeling the Impact of Urban Three-Dimensional Expansion on Atmospheric Environmental Conditions in an Old Industrial District: A Case Study in Shenyang, China

The rapid expansion of cities has caused enormous changes in the underlying surface, and coupled with the intensification of human activities, it has resulted in a series of ecological and

Atmospheric Modelling Under Urban Land Use Changes: Meteorological and Air Quality Consequences

Urban sprawl is altering the landscape and leading to changes in emissions and air quality. This study analyses the impacts of alternative urban growth patterns on air quality, through a 1-year

Development of an integrated air pollutant and GHG urban emissions model-5 Methodology and calibration over the greater Paris

Air pollutants and greenhouse gases have many effects on health, the economy, urban climate and atmospheric environment. At the city level, the transport and heating sectors contribute significantly

Effect of Land Use and Cover Change on Air Quality in Urban Sprawl

Due to the frequent urban air pollution episodes worldwide recently, decision-makers and government agencies are struggling for sustainable strategies to optimize urban land use/cover change (LUCC)


Public policies encouraging the insertion of large industrial and commercial developments near highways, associated to exclusionary housing policies, have shaped over the past decades a new

Air quality and urban form in U.S. urban areas: evidence from regulatory monitors.

The empirical findings are consistent with prior modeling research and suggest that urban form could potentially play a modest but important role in achieving (or not achieving) long-term air quality goals.



Effect of socioeconomic status on the relationship between atmospheric pollution and mortality

Current evidence does not yet justify a definitive conclusion that socioeconomic characteristics modify the effects of air pollution on mortality, but existing results emphasise the importance of continuing to investigate this topic.

Détermination des limites d’agglomération par télédétection : discussion méthodologique et application au cas de Huy (Belgique)

Un souci majeur de divers pays europeens, et de l'Union europeenne elle-meme, est de mieux apprehender l'agglomeration urbaine et de definir des unites de recensement comparables (PUMAIN et al.,
