Concordia researchers propose new building guidelines to clean up city air As urban populations expand, downtown buildings are going nowhere but up. The huge energy needs of these skyscrapers mean that these towers are not only office buildings, they´re polluters with smokestacks billowing out toxins from the rooftop. Our cities are dirtier than we think. New research from Concordia University just might clean them up. By examining the trajectory and amount of air pollution from a...

Plumes of harmful air pollutants can be transported across oceans and continents -- from Asia to the United States and from the United States to Europe -- and have a negative impact on air quality far from their original sources, says a new report by the National Research Council.  Although degraded air quality is nearly always dominated by local emissions, the influence of non-domestic pollution sources may grow as emissions from developing countries increase and become relatively more...

By Tirabassi, Tiziano Buske, Daniela; Moreira, Davidson M; Vilhena, Marco T ABSTRACT A mathematical scheme is developed to simulate the vertical turbulent dispersion of air pollution that is absorbed or deposited to the ground. The scheme is an exact analytical solution of the atmospheric diffusion equation, without any restriction to the vertical profile of wind speed and eddy diffusivities, and taking into account the dry deposition by a boundary condition of a nonzero flux to the ground....
