Air pollution represents one of the most important health risks that currently exist. It is estimated that environmental pollution by fine particulate matter (PM2.5) contribute to 4.2 million premature deaths worldwide during 2016 (source: World Health Organization, WHO).
In a previous post we detailed some of the main challenges that climate change adaptation projects are facing. In this second post, we want to delve into seven technical aspects that seem fundamental to us when using climate change projections and scenarios for climate resilience or adaptation projects. The first important premise is that climate […]
Particulate matter is the main pollution problem in mines. The mining area is constantly exposed to a lot of activities that generate a large amount of dust and suspended particles. Blasting, excavations, handling and loading of aggregate onto storage piles, and vehicle transport of the mined material, are the main sources of particles in an […]
Nowadays we are able to forecast the levels of contamination in a region by using the air quality (AQ) models. These models can reproduce the main agents that influence the air pollution, like the meteorological situation, the emission sources, the dispersion of pollutants or the chemical reactions in the atmosphere. The result is the local […]
Insights driven from developing new tailored climate tools to help wineries in production management. There is scientific evidence that our climate is changing due to the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) from anthropogenic activities. Although the causes and consequences of climate change are global, impacts differ from region to region and sector to sector. Tackling […]
