Superstatistical approach to air pollution statistics

Air pollution by Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) is a major concern in large cities as it has severe adverse health effects. However, the statistical properties of air pollutants are not fully understood.

Size Distributions for All Cities: Lognormal and q-exponential functions

This paper analyses in detail the features offered by a function which is practically new to Urban Economics, the q-exponential, in describing city size distributions. We highlight two contributions.

Covid-19 impact on air quality in megacities

Air pollution is among the highest contributors to mortality worldwide, especially in urban areas. During spring 2020, many countries enacted social distancing measures in order to slow down the

Superstatistics and non-Gaussian diffusion

A brief introduction to the phenomenon of non-Gaussianity and the stochastic modelling in terms of superstatistical and diffusing-diffusivity approaches is provided.

Transatlantic Saharan dust transport : Model simulation and results

[1] Long-range transport of desert dust from the Sahara across the northern Atlantic has been recorded many times by satellite imagery and ground-based measurements. However, this evidence cannot

The results show that the frequency distributions of PM10 concentration at the Hsin-Chu and Shalu stations are unimodal, but the distribution at Gain-Jin is bimodal; and the days exceeding the air quality standard (AQS) for the H sin-chu, Shalu, and Gain-jin stations in the coming year are successfully predicted by the theoretic distributions.

Generalized entropies and the transformation group of superstatistics

Superstatistics describes statistical systems that behave like superpositions of different inverse temperatures β, so that the probability distribution is , where the “kernel” f(β) is nonnegative and

From time series to superstatistics.

This work describes how to proceed from a given experimental time series to a superstatistical description and illustrates the approach by applying it to velocity time series measured in turbulent Taylor-Couette flow, which is well described by log-normal superstatistics and exhibits clear time scale separation.

A superstatistical model for a Lagrangian tracer particle in a high-Reynolds-number turbulent flow that correctly predicts the shape of acceleration probability densities, correlation functions, statistical dependencies between components, and explains the fact that enstrophy lags behind dissipation.
