Synchromodal transport has the potential to offer flexible, reliable, cost-effective and sustainable freight transportation by enabling real-time switching between transport modes. Given the numerous stakeholders and network interdependencies within freight transport corridors, achieving efficient coordination and management is complex. Multiple...

Reported sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions from US and Canadian sources have declined dramatically since the 1990s as a result of emission control measures. Observations from the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) on NASA's Aura satellite and ground-based in situ measurements are examined to verify whether the observed changes from SO2 abundance...

The paper presents the first modelling experiment of the European-scale olive pollen dispersion, analyses the quality of the predictions, and outlines the research needs. A 6-model strong ensemble of Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service (CAMS) was run throughout the olive season of 2014, computing the olive pollen distribution. The...

The Monitoring and Verification Support (MVS) capacity is a technical capacity to provide support to the policy makers and the scientific community. The MVS aims at supplying extra evidence on the emissions levels and trends, coupling anthropogenic activities and associated emissions with the atmospheric patterns in greenhouse gas concentrations...

Presented here is the validation of the CrIS (Cross-track Infrared Sounder) fast physical NH3 retrieval (CFPR) column and profile measurements using ground-based Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) observations. We use the total columns and profiles from seven FTIR sites in the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC) to...

Environmental footprints are increasingly used to quantify and compare environmental impacts of for example products, technologies, households, or nations. This has resulted in a multitude of footprint indicators, ranging from relatively simple measures of resource use (water, energy, materials) to integrated measures of eventual damage (for...

When it comes to City Logistics, the need to innovate comes from multiple directions. Greenhouse gas emissions must be drastically reduced while at the same time maintaining a vibrant and healthy economy, demanding robust action from each and every sector, including transport. At the same time, competition for scarce and precious common...

The development and application of chemistry transpor tmodels has a long tradition. Within the Netherlands the LOTOS–EUROS model has been developed by a consortium of institutes, after combining its independently developed predecessors in 2005. Recently, version 2.0 of the model was released as an open-source version. This paper presents the...

This report offers a snapshot of the status of the environment for nanotechnology in the context of transport. Transport is defined here as a sector based on vehicles for transporting people and/or goods via the air, rail, road, water and space1, and is here divided into two main areas, vehicles and infrastructure. The industry generates about 5...

Background: Exacerbations constitute a major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Both bacterial infections, such as those with non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi), and exposures to diesel engine emissions are known to contribute to exacerbations in COPD patients....

Using data assimilation (DA) to improve model forecast accuracy is a powerful approach that requires available observations. Infrared satellite measurements of volcanic ash mass loadings are often used as input observations for the assimilation scheme. However, because these primary satellite-retrieved data are often two-dimensional (2-D) and...

We use the technique of Observing System Simulation Experiments (OSSEs) to quantify the impact of spaceborne carbon monoxide (CO) total column observations from the Sentinel-5 Precursor (S-5P) platform on tropospheric analyses and forecasts. We focus on Europe for the period of northern summer 2003, when there was a severe heat wave episode...

Conventional travel time reliability assessment has evolved from road segments to the route level. However, a connection between origin and destination usually consists of multiple routes, thereby providing the option to choose. Having alternatives can compensate for the deterioration of a single route; therefore, this study assesses the...

Major and minor disturbances can have a considerable impact on the performance of road networks. In this respect, resilience is con-sidered as the ability of a road section to resist and to recover from disturbances in traffic flow. In this contribution, an indicator is pre-sented, the Link Performance Index for Resilience (LPIR), which eval...

De bestelauto is hét werkpaard van bedrijven en zzp'ers in de Nederlandse economie. Niet zonder reden: het vervoermiddel is multifunctioneel en flexibel inzetbaar, en is in vergelijking met (kleinere) vrachtwagens en personenauto's ook nog goedkoop in aanschaf en praktisch in gebruik. Daarnaast volstaat een B-rijbewijs om een bestelauto te mogen...

Mobiliteitsexperts verwachten een groei van het wegverkeer, gekoppeld aan de economische groei, waardoor het verlies van reistijd in 2021 toegenomen zal zijn met 38% ten opzichte van 20151. Sinds eind 2014 nemen de files immers weer toe en de treinen zijn met name in de spits op een aantal trajecten heel vol. Voor de middellange termijn...

Adverse weather conditions regularly lead to severe congestion and large travel time delays on road networks all over the world. Different climate scenarios indicate that in the future adverse weather conditions are likely to become more frequent, last longer and will be more extreme. Although climate mitigation measures are being taken, it...

Official average carbon dioxide (CO2) emission values of new passenger cars in the European Union declined from 170 grams per kilometer (g/km) in 2001 to 120 g/km in 2015. The rate of reduction in CO2 emission values increased from roughly 1% per year to almost 4% per year after CO2 standards were introduced in 2009. Today, car manufacturers are...
