Wat is RESPONSE? Bij een incident met gevaarlijke stoffen heeft Response drie functies: 1. Berekenen van de bronlocatie van het incident, onder meer op basis van sensordata of klachten van omwonenden; 2. Berekenen van de mogelijke effecten van het incident met een gevaarlijke stof voor de omgeving; 3. Selecteren van informatie voor werknemers en...

Natural environments (NE) are promoted as places that support physical activity (PA), but evidence on PA distribution across various types and sizes of NE is lacking. Accelerometers and GPS-devices measured PA of Dutch general population adults aged 45–65 years (N=279). Five NE types were distinguished: ‘parks’, ‘recreational area’, ...

Het Lint is een ruim 8km lang beweeglint in het Máximapark in Utrecht dat intensief wordt gebruikt om te wandelen, fietsen, skaten, hardlopen. Een groot succes dus, maar wat verklaart dit succes? Wat zijn de randvoorwaarden en ontwerpprincipes die misschien ook elders voor succesvolle toepassingen kunnen zorgen? Deze vraag stelde de gemeente...

In Nederland vinden we het van groot belang dat kinderen de kans krijgen om zich op gezonde wijze te ontwikkelen. Een belangrijk aspect van een gezonde ontwikkeling is dat kinderen dagelijks voldoende bewegen. Te veel kinderen voldoen helaas niet aan de beweegnorm van dagelijks een uur lichamelijke activiteit. Daarom is het van belang om...

Noise is defined as 'unwanted sound.' Aircraft noise is one, if not the most detrimental environmental effect of aviation. It can cause community annoyance, disrupt sleep, adversely affect academic performance of children, and could increase the risk for cardiovascular disease of people living in the vicinity of airports. In some airports, noise...

There is a growing awareness in cities throughout the world that green and blue infrastructure can offer a wide range of ecosystem services to support a healthy urban environment. For example, landscape architects explore possibilities in their design of the urban landscape to use the potential of green elements for regulating air temperature,...

Propagation of sound waves in air can be considered as a special case of fluid dynamics. Consequently, the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) for fluid flow can be used for simulating sound propagation. In this article application of the LBM to sound propagation is illustrated for various cases: free-field propagation, propagation over porous and...

This paper simulates the medium- and long-term impact of proposed and expected energy policy on the environment and on the Mexican economy. The analysis has been conducted with a Multi-sector Macroeconomic Model for the Evaluation of Environmental and Energy policy (Three-ME). This model is well suited for policy assessment purposes in the...

Physical inactivity among children is on the rise. Active transport to school (ATS), namely walking and cycling there, adds to children's activity level. Little is known about how exposures along actual routes influence children's transport behavior. This study examined how natural and built environments influence mode choice among Dutch...

In this paper, we reconstruct the vertical profile of volcanic ash emissions by assimilating satellite data and ground‐based observations using a modified trajectory‐based 4D‐Var (Trj4DVar) approach. In our previous work, we found that the lack of vertical resolution in satellite ash column data can result in a poor estimation of the injection...

One of the most important goals for energy transition is to reduce CO2 by turning to renewable energy, such as solar and wind energy. However, the production of renewable energy is not always an integral part of the energy system. Instead, it may have a decentralized basis, even up to the household level. In the Netherlands, this decentralizing...

We present a novel approach to study the organic composition of aerosol filter samples using thermal-desorption proton-transfer-reaction mass spectrometry (TD-PTR-MS) in the laboratory. The method is tested and validated based on the comparison with in situ TD-PTR-MS measurements. In general, we observe correspondence within the levels of...

De intensiteit op het spoor- en wegennet in ons land is al hoog en stijgt gestaag door. Dit heeft consequenties voor de veiligheid, niet in de laatste plaats van het vervoer van gevaarlijke stoffen over het spoor Extra maatregelen zijn nodig en dit is een zaak voor zowel de overheid als het bedrijfsleven. Het is dan ook vreemd dat kennis, kunde...

Biodiesel made from the transesterification of plant- and animal-derived oils is an important alternative fuel source for diesel engines. Although numerous studies have reported health effects associated with petroleum diesel emissions, information on biodiesel emissions are more limited. To this end, a program at the U.S. EPA assessed health...

New railway vehicles in Europe have to comply with noise limits as defined in the Technical Specification for Interoperability (TSI). The pass-by test has to be carried out at a site that fulfills the TSI requirements. The need has arisen to be able to perform TSI pass-by type testing at non-compliant sites. In the ACOUTRAIN project, procedures...

Particulate matter (PM) air quality in Europe has improved substantially over the past decades, but it still poses a significant threat to human health. Accurate regional scale maps of PM10 concentrations are needed for monitoring progress in mitigation strategies and monitoring compliance with statutory limit values. Chemistry transport models ...
