CERC&#39;s <a href="http://www.cerc.co.uk/EMIT" title="Go to EMIT page">EMIT</a> was also introduced as a comprehensive tool for collating and editing data for use in ADMS-Urban. The delegates from the DHMZ had experience of regional modelling and were interested in using CERC&#39;s <a href="http://www.cerc.co.uk/RML" title="Go to Regional Model Link page">Regional Model Link</a> to &#39;nest&#39; the high-resolution ADMS-Urban model in a regional domain, for instance in and around the city of Zagreb.</p> <p>The team at DHMZ were also interested in industrial and puff modelling. Hence, some time was spent learning about <a href="http://www.cerc.co.uk/adms" title="Go to ADMS 5 page">ADMS 5</a> and its applications, such as how to carry out an industrial study. <a href="http://www.cerc.co.uk/admspuff" title="Go to ADMS-Puff page">ADMS-Puff</a> was introduced as a tool to model finite duration releases.</p> <p>This dedicated two-week training visit was a highly productive opportunity to present several CERC air quality models together, modelling at different scales on a local, urban and regional basis.

They have carried out detailed modelling with CERC's <a href="http://cerc.co.uk/ADMSUrban" title="Go to ADMS-Urban page">ADMS-Urban</a> software, which is widely used for developing and testing policy and action plans for air quality improvement. The modelling identified 152 stretches of road likely to have levels of NO2 in breach of legal limits beyond 2020 if no action is taken (i.e. annual average above 40 &mu;g/m3). An <a href="https://cleanairgm.com/clean-air-plan" title="Go to Greater Manchester Map">interactive map</a> shows which stretches of road are affected.</p> <p>To develop the Clean Air Plan, Greater Manchester is considering a wide range of measures that could help reduce roadside NO2 levels. The final Clean Air Plan will include a combination of interventions from a <a href="https://cleanairgm.com/gm-clean-air-plan" title="Go to Greater Manchester shortlist">shortlist</a> of 14 potential measures including retrofitting public transport and local authority fleets, increasing use of alternative fuels and electric vehicles, and Clean Air Zones. No decision has been taken yet on which of these measures will be included in the final Greater Manchester Clean Air Plan. The Greater Manchester Clean Air Plan Business Case is required to be submitted to Government by 31 December 2018.</p> <br /><br /><img src="http://www.cerc.co.uk/about-us/assets/news/CERC20181107_Manchester.png" width="317" height="254"/> http://www.cerc.co.uk/about-us/news.php?newsitem=290#news290 Thu, 08 Nov 2018 00:00:00 GMT Modelling future air quality scenarios for the fast-expanding smart city of Cambridge (UK) http://www.cerc.co.uk/about-us/news.php?newsitem=289#news289 <p>Over the next three years, the <a href="http://www.cerc.co.uk/consultancy" title="Go to Consultancy page">CERC consultancy</a> team will be working closely with <a href="https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/" target="_blank" title="Access Cambridge City Council website">Cambridge City Council</a> and the <a href="https://www.greatercambridge.org.uk/" target="_blank" title="Access Greater Cambridge Partnership website">Greater Cambridge Partnership</a> (GCP) on initiatives to improve or maintain existing good air quality whilst managing sustainable growth for Greater Cambridge.</p> <p>CERC will use <a href="http://www.cerc.co.uk/EMIT" title="Go to EMIT page">EMIT</a> and <a href="http://www.cerc.co.uk/Urban" title="Go to ADMS-Urban page">ADMS-Urban</a> to compile an emissions inventory and model baseline and future air quality across the GCP area. We will apply source apportionment techniques to quantify the relative contribution of different sources of emissions to air, thus guiding proposals for effective interventions.</p> <p>Road traffic emissions are the main source of air pollution in Cambridge. In 2004, the City Council declared an Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) covering the central part of the city (<a href="http://cerc.co.uk/about-us/assets/news/CERC20181105_AQMA.jpg" target="_blank" title="Go to AQMA figure">see figure</a>). Expected traffic growth could worsen air quality, so a key aim of the GCP is to propose a range of measures to tackle congestion and air quality issues.</p> <p>CERC will assess proposed transport interventions by comparing the future baseline and future intervention scenarios, to inform the GCP of the effectiveness of different schemes.</p> <p>Potential interventions include: <a href="https://www.cambridge.gov.uk/clean-air-zone" target="_blank" title="Access Clean Air Zone website">Clean Air Zone</a> options; changing to electric buses and taxis; altering bus routes; encouraging modal shift, e.g. car to bike; closing roads and road charging schemes.</p> <br /><br /><img src="http://www.cerc.co.uk/about-us/assets/news/CERC20181105_Cambridge.jpg" width="315" height="200"/><br /><br /><img src="http://www.cerc.co.uk/about-us/assets/news/CERC20181105_AQMA.jpg" width="320" height="460"/> http://www.cerc.co.uk/about-us/news.php?newsitem=289#news289 Mon, 05 Nov 2018 00:00:00 GMT 2000 health centres in areas breaching WHO air quality guidelines http://www.cerc.co.uk/about-us/news.php?newsitem=288#news288 <p>New <a href="https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0221/4446/files/PM_Report_FINAL_web_40b0715b-8775-4ee1-a092-2199f9c48a46.pdf?14854756238904833688&_ga=2.83947420.408292301.1540473390-2054549272.1531316626" title="BLF report" target="_blank">analysis</a> by the British Lung Foundation (BLF), and Cambridge Environmental Research Consultants (<a href="http://www.cerc.co.uk" title="CERC home page" target="_blank">CERC</a>), has revealed that more than 2,000 health centres in Great Britain, including major teaching hospitals, children's hospitals, clinics and doctor's surgeries are in areas which exceed recommended air pollution guidelines. Specifically, these health centres are in areas with average levels of fine particulate matter (PM<sub>2.5</sub>) that are above the guideline recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO) (10&#956;g/m<sup>3</sup> for the annual average).</p> <p>CERC's analysis is based on predicted annual average PM<sub>2.5</sub> data for 2018 published by the UK Government. These data have a spatial resolution of 1km x 1km and therefore represent 'background' levels of PM<sub>2.5</sub>. These data give an indication of expected PM<sub>2.5</sub> levels at sufficient resolution to provide good evidence; however they do not capture hyperlocal spatial variations in PM<sub>2.5</sub> levels caused by road traffic.</p> <p>Postcodes for 1,457 hospitals and 8,532 doctor's surgeries in England, Scotland and Wales were extracted from the NHS digital database. (Northern Ireland was excluded from the scope of this research as NHS Digital does not contain postcodes for hospitals in Northern Ireland.)
