The CERC consultancy team compiled annual monitoring data statistics for nitrogen dioxide (NO2) diffusion tube and continuous monitoring as part of the London Borough of Hackney's yearly report to the Greater London Authority.
The work involved the preparation of tables and graphs presenting monitoring results in line with the Annual Status Report (part of London Local Air Quality Management). CERC presented and interpreted year-on-year trends highlighted by the data and carried out QA and QC, including compilation of Air-PT scores, bias adjustment of diffusion tube results and annualisation of results with low data capture.
The draft agendas for this year's ADMS User Group Meetings are now available. The meetings are being held at The Holiday Inn Camden Lock Hotel in London on the 9th and 10th November. Places are limited, so please register before 31st October. Software users with valid support are entitled to one free place at the relevant User Group Meeting for a single user licence, two free places for a 2-5 user licence and two free places for research and teaching licences. For all other attendees the fee is £175 per person per event (excluding VAT).
A new version of Defra's Emissions Factors Toolkit (EFT), version 7.0, was released in July 2016. Details of the updates included in the latest release are summarised on pages 4 and 5 of the EFT User Guide.
ADMS-Urban and ADMS-Roads incorporate the EFT emission factors so that emission rates can be calculated from available traffic and speed data. CERC have compiled a model update that includes the EFT version 7.0 emissions factors, which is available to ADMS-Urban and ADMS-Roads users with current support contracts. Please visit the CERC User Area for a download link.
There will be a talk to summarise this model update at the ADMS-Urban and ADMS-Roads User Group Meeting in Camden, London, on the 10th of November.
