Kvikksølv i grenseområdene Norge - Russland. Målinger av kvikksølv (Hg) i luft og nedbør i grenseområdene mot Russland.

Berglen, Tore Flatlandsmo; Nilsen, Anne-Cathrine; Pfaffhuber, Katrine Aspmo; Uggerud, Hilde Thelle

In the project there were monitoring of mercury (Hg) in air at one station and sampling and analysis of Hg in precipitation at two stations as well as analysis of Hg in 14 fish from the Pasvik water course. The monitoring results for Hg in air in Karpdalen show background levels around 1,3 - 1,4 ng/m3. Enhanced concentrations of Hg correspond to enhanced concentrations of SO2 (episodes). It is therefore likely that there exist a small local source of Hg in the border areas co-located with the sources of SO2. Concentrations and deposition of Hg in precipitation are higher at Svanvik than in Karpdalen, but lower than background stations in Southern Norway. Analysis of Hg in fish meat show that the largest fish (pike, trout, perch) have concentrations higher than the threshold value of 0,5 mg/kg. White fish showed low values.

NILU’s Environmental Management Report 2017

Braathen, Ole-Anders; Marsteen, Leif; Langholen, Trine; Andresen, Eva Beate; Fjeldstad, Heidi

One of NILU’s main goals is to study the impact of pollution and supply decision-makers with a sound scientific platform for choosing measures to reduce the negative impacts. Furthermore, it is very important for the institute to have control of the impact the institute’s own activities may have on the environment and to reduce negative impacts as far as possible.

NILU has for many years been working to improve the status of the environment and to reduce negative impacts. In order to take this one step further, it was decided that the institute should restructure the work according to a relevant environmental standard and to seek certification according to the same standard.

The chosen standard is ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental management systems—Requirements with guidance for use) and NILU achieved certification according to this standard in October 2010. This report summarizes the results of the system in 2017.

Dauge, Franck Rene; Marsteen, Leif; Schneider, Philipp

This report explains technical terms related to measuring performances, as well as providing recommendations and requirements in connection with preparation of tenders. The report goes through existing instrumentation for air quality measurement in Norway and current legislation on the subject. It mentions possible applications for new measurement technologies. An overview of metrological terms with explanations gives the reader basic knowledge necessary to interpret instrument specifications. The report identifies some important parameters related to the quality of sensor systems.

Air quality in Ny-Ålesund. Monitoring of local air quality 2016-2017.

Johnsrud, Mona; Hermansen, Ove; Tørnkvist, Kjersti

The concentrations of the measured components are generally low and below national limit values for the protection of human health and critical levels for the protection of vegetation.

Wind from northern sectors gave the highest average concentrations of nitrogen oxides and sulphur dioxide, which indicates the power station and the harbour as possible sources. The measurement results for CO2 show an annual variation with higher concentrations in the winter and lower in summer. Measured concentrations of CO were most likely caused by local snowmobile traffic.

Tiltaksutredning for lokal luftkvalitet i Sarpsborg og Fredrikstad

Weydahl, Torleif; Grythe, Henrik; Høiskar, Britt Ann Kåstad; Svorstøl, Eli-Trine; Haug, Tormod Wergeland

Tiltaksutredningen omfatter en kartlegging av luftkvaliteten i Fredrikstad og Sarpsborg ved trafikkberegninger og utslipps- ogspredningsberegninger for PM10 og NO2 for dagens situasjon (2016) og framtidig situasjon (2022). Forurensningsnivåene er innenfor de juridiske grenseverdiene og det er ikke formelt krav til tiltak utover gjeldende handlingsplan (2017). For å redusere risikoen for overskridelser av grenseverdiene i et «ekstrem år» og generelt forbedre luftkvaliteten, er enkelte nye tiltak effektberegnet sammen med tiltak i Bypakke Nedre Glomma. Basert på resultatene fra beregningene og i samarbeid
med oppdragsgiver og prosjektgruppen, er det foreslått en revidert seks-punkts handlingsplan, med ytterligere tre tiltak for forbedret luftkvalitet utover de juridiske kravene. Tiltaksutredningen med handlingsplan skal behandles politisk.

Air quality in Norwegian cities in 2015. Evaluation Report for NBV Main Results.

Tarrasón, Leonor; Sousa Santos, Gabriela; Vo, Dam Thanh; Vogt, Matthias; Lopez-Aparicio, Susana; Denby, Bruce; Tønnesen, Dag Arild; Sundvor, Ingrid; Røen, Håvard Vika; Høiskar, Britt Ann Kåstad

This report documents the final deliveries of the first phase of development of the Norwegian Air Quality Planning Tool,
also called “Nasjonalt Beregningsverktøy” or NBV. The main purpose of NBV is to provide a common methodological and
information platform for local air quality modelling applications. The system is addressed to local and regional
environmental authorities, air quality experts and consulting companies. It is intended to help them meet the requirements
of current air quality legislation, to support local air quality planning and facilitate air quality good practices where people live.
The report constitutes a comprehensive user guide for the NBV services available at http://www.luftkvalitet-nbv.no. It
presents each of the different products developed at NBV, documents how the product has been calculated, provides
recommendations on how best to use it for planning purposes and explains the main strengths and limitations of each
product. The report also includes an extensive validation of the air quality information currently available at NBV.

Air quality in 7 Norwegian municipalities in 2015. Summary report for NBV results.

Tarrasón, Leonor; Sousa Santos, Gabriela; Vo, Dam Thanh; Hamer, Paul David; Vogt, Matthias; Lopez-Aparicio, Susana; Røen, Håvard Vika; Høiskar, Britt Ann Kåstad

This report documents the methodology used to compile air quality information for the year 2015 in seven Norwegian municipality areas under the first phase of development of the Norwegian Air Quality Planning Tool, also called “Nasjonalt Beregningsverktøy” or NBV. It follows a similar structure to and complements the final report entitled “Air quality in 7 Norwegian municipalities in 2015 – Summary report for NBV results” (NILU rapport 21/2017) where information on air quality in the seven main city areas in Norway was presented.

This report constitutes a user guide for the NBV-services, available at http://www.luftkalitet-nbv.no, in municipal areas. It provides recommendations on how to best use each product for air quality planning purposes and explains the main strengths and limitations of the results. The NBV air quality data for municipalities is subject to larger uncertainties than the data available for the main Norwegian city areas and this has to be taken into consideration when analyzing the results.

Air quality in Europe - 2018 report

Guerreiro, Cristina; Ortiz, Alberto Gonzalez; de Leeuw, Frank; Viana, Mar; Colette, Augustin

The current report presents an updated overview and analysis of air quality in Europe from 2000 to 2016. It reviews the progress made towards meeting the air quality standards established in the two EU Ambient Air Quality Directives and towards the World Health Organization (WHO) air quality guidelines (AQGs). It also presents the latest findings and estimates on population and ecosystem exposure to the air pollutants with the greatest impacts and effects. The evaluation of the status of air quality is based mainly on reported ambient air measurements, in conjunction with modelling data and data on anthropogenic emissions and their evolution over time.

NERVE - Utslipsmodell for veitrafikk. Dokumentasjon av beregningsmodell for klimagassutslipp i norske kommuner.

Weydahl, Torleif; Grythe, Henrik; Haug, Tormod Wergeland; Høyem, Harald

NILU og Urbanet Analyse har på oppdrag fra Miljødirektoratet utviklet modellen NERVE («Norwegian Emissions from Road
Vehicle Exhaust») for klimagassutslipp fra veitrafikken i norske kommuner. NERVE beregner klimagassutslipp fra
veitrafikken totalt innenfor hver kommune geografisk og for kommunens innbyggere, både som totalt utslipp og som en
utslippsfaktor (g/km). NERVE en en «bottom-up» modell som bygger på fire detaljerte datasett; 1) Veinettet ved alle
offentlige veier fra Nasjonal vegdatabank (NVDB), 2) trafikk på vei fra Regional Transport Model (RTM), 3)
kjørelengdestatistikken for norskregistrerte kjøretøy fra Statistisk Sentralbyrå Norge (SSB) og 4) utslippsfaktorer fra HBEFA(Hand Book of Emission FActors for Road Transport.
