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...

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...

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...

Late 2016, London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced to join 11 other major cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Copenhagen, Hamburg and Amsterdam, that have committed to begin moves to phase out their procurement of pure diesel buses by the end of 2020. With the initiative, major cities are working together to challenge bus manufacturers to produce...

The supply chain of goods delivered in urban areas is larger than the transport associated purely with the ‘last mile’ in city distribution. In retail, for example, the flow of goods is often routed via regional or national distribution centres. The transport of goods towards and between these centres is often characterized by long-distance...

There is growing consensus among governments, businesses and consumers about climate change and the required energy transition. At the Paris climate conference (COP21) in December 2015, 195 countries adopted the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal. The agreement sets out a global action plan to put the world on track to...

Managing urban areas has become one of the most important development challenges of the 21st century. Urban populations continue to grow and sustainable urbanization is key to successful development. Growing cities facilitate more attractive opportunities for employment, education, and cultural, shopping, social and sport activities. Many cities...

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...

The emission of isoprene and other biogenic volatile organic compounds from vegetation plays an important role in tropospheric ozone (O3) formation. The potentially large expansion of isoprene emitting species (e.g., poplars) for bioenergy production might, therefore, impact tropospheric O3 formation. Using the eddy covariance technique we have...

Innovation based on open data lags behind the high expectations of policy makers. Hence, open data researchers have investigated the barriers of open data publication and adoption. This paper contributes to this literature by taking a capabilities perspective on how successful open data re-users create value out of the available data sources....

While the field of sustainable consumption research is relatively young, it has already attracted scholars from all corners of the social sciences. The time has come to identify a new research agenda as trends in sustainable consumption research seem to suggest the dawning of a new phase. Not only does research need to be guided, but sustainable...

We evaluate the capability of the global atmospheric transport model TM5 to simulate the boundary layer dynamics and associated variability of trace gases close to the surface, using radon (222Rn). Focusing on the European scale, we compare the boundary layer height (BLH) in the TM5 model with observations from the National Oceanic and...

Sea salt aerosol (SSA) is one of the major components of primary aerosols and has significant impact on the formation of secondary inorganic particles mass on a global scale. In this study, the fully online coupled WRFChem model was utilized to evaluate the SSA emission scheme and its influence on the nitrate simulation in a case study in Europe...

Abstract—With increasing numbers of vehicles using low level automation and higher level automation expected in the future, significant effects are expected on traffic flow. Despite much simulation and driving simulator research on SAE level 1 vehicles, there remain many questions in regard to the effects of the systems on traffic flow. The...

Ground level ozone poses a significant threat to human health from air pollution in the European Union. While anthropogenic emissions of precursor substances (NOx, NMVOC, CH4) are regulated by EU air quality legislation and will decrease further in the future, the emissions of biogenic NMVOC (mainly isoprene) may increase significantly in the...
