    Activated sludge is a sanitation technology that use biological processes and can be deployed in a semi-centralized or centralized manner. An activated sludge system consists of one or more reactors, in which microorganisms responsible for treatment are kept in suspension and a solid-liquid separation is performed in a secondary clarifier that follows the activated sludge. Components of Exposure. Human exposure to a pollutant, and its consequent impact on health, results from the simultaneous occurrence of two events—a pollutant concentration c(x,t) at point x and time t, and the presence of people. Exposure=f[P(x,t), c(x,t)] where P(x,t) represents the number of people at point x and time t inhaling a pollutant at concentration c(x,t).Cited by: 2.

    This unique volume provides the only holistic treatment of wind towers, a core aspect of sustainable architecture in hot, arid climates. The authors explain how traditional incarnations of these structures provide significant decreases in energy consumption through their use of renewable wind resources to cool buildings and water storage facilities.

This doctoral research project has been undertaken as a joint project between the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and the University of Bath. The work was carried out under BRE project number ZBF

Mixing heights, wind speeds and ventilation coefficients for Canada. [R V Portelli; Canada. Atmospheric Environment Service.] -- The purpose of this study, is to provide estimates of mid-afternoon (the time of day when mixing is typically maximal) mixing heights, wind speeds through the mixed layer and ventilation coefficients.

Further, ventilation coefficient (VC) is a product of mean mixing depth (MMD) and average wind speed, which gives an indication of the air quality in terms of the ability of the atmosphere to. Several distinct regimes occur. One, in the region of heaviest acidic deposition extending from the states south of the Great Lakes across New England and southeastern Canada, has a very strong seasonal variation in the SO 4 = /NO 3-molar ratio in deposition.

The ratio ranges from about in summer to about in by: The results indicate that nighttime mixing heights averaged Cited by: Low correlations between mixing height and air pollution levels may be because: 1.(1) there is a greater variation in mixing height in time and space than is generally thought;2.(2) the standard.

Mixing heights are usually the highest (i.e., in the – m range) during daytime periods that are characterized by strong solar heating and the lowest (i.e., about m) during the night. High wind speeds can also produce deep well-mixed layers. Mixing Heights and Ventilation Coefficients for Urban Centres in India‘.

3. The data needed to estimate mixing heights are also generally lacking for most cities. However, better mixing height data may still not yield a useful measure of dispersion potential for vehicular emissions. Recommendation 5. As noted earlier, few measurements have been made of the transport and dispersion of air from an urban by: 8.

The number of automobiles has been steadily increasing in cities as a consequence of rapid urbanization and economic growth. It has been widely reported that vehicular emissions are strongly correlated with the level of urban air pollution. The major primary air pollutants that are linked to direct emissions from on‐road vehicles include soot (black carbon), carbon monoxide (CO), and nitric Author: Sailesh N.

Behera, Rajasekhar Balasubramanian. R.V. PortelliMixing Heights, Wind Speeds and Ventilation Coefficients for Canada Fisheries and Environment Canada and Atmospheric Environment, Toronto, ON Cited by: The afternoon mixing heights determine the thickness of the modeling region, and hence the amount of dilution due to vertical diffusion.

Mix- ing height data for the Northern Great Plains are virtually unobtainable. In the regional model we used the seasonally averaged afternoon mixing heights shown in Figure 21 (Holzworth, ). Measured on-site wind speeds of less than m/s, but above the instrument threshold, should be set equal to m/s by the preprocessor when used as input to Gaussian models.

Wind speeds below the starting thres- hold of the anemometer or vane, whichever is greater, should be considered calm. Fig. 4 Local Pressure Coefficients (Cp ´ ) for Tall Building with Varying Wind Direction Local Wind Pressure Coefficients Surface-Averaged Wall Pressures [ Go to Page ].

Global carbon dioxide (CO₂) atmospheric mixing ratios and near-surface air temperatures are projected to rise for the foreseeable future. Given that human populations and activity are concentrated in urban areas, knowledge and quantification of CO₂ emissions and uptake processes is important for urban sustainable development applications and emission reduction efforts.

Atmospheric. A collection of papers presented at the Sixth International Conference on Tall Buildings (ICTB), this volume clearly explains the engineering and socio-economic aspects of tall buildings in specific areas of sustainability. The papers focus on Asian cities, where tall buildings have become a major feature of the built environment.Figure 5: Wind rose diagram for wind directions.
