Modelling and measuring non-exhaust emissions from traffic - emissions out of control
You are kindly invited to contribute to the special session on "Modelling and measuring non-exhaust emissions from traffic" with oral or poster presentations. Please select topic "Special session - Modelling and measuring non-exhaust emissions from traffic" when submitting your abstract.
Chair: Matthias Ketzel
Co-Chair: Bruce Denby
Road transport emissions are a major contributor to ambient particulate matter concentrations and have been shown to cause severe adverse health effects. While exhaust emissions will substantially decrease in the coming years due to more stringent regulation, the non-exhaust emissions are expected to stay at the same level or increase with traffic volume and will represent a dominating part of the total PM emissions. Non-exhaust traffic emissions, unlike exhaust emissions, are totally unregulated. This session invites scientists to present their most recent research results regarding assessment and abatement of non-exhaust emissions from traffic.
List of topics included in this special session:
This session will be organised in cooperation with and based on several current or recently finalised international projects, e.g. NORTRIP (NOn-exhaust Road TRaffic Induced Particle emissions - Development of tools for assessing the effect on air quality and exposure), AIRUSE LIFE+, Nordic Road Dust Group.
The session is open to all contributions related to the above mentioned topics. All submitted abstracts will be peer reviewed according to the normal procedures of the conference and selected papers will be encouraged for a publication in an international scientific journal (e.g. ATMENV, ACP or AAQR…) referring to this AQ2016 special session.
