LF511 - NO2 Removal by urban vegetation (LUISA Platform REF2014)

Collection: LUISA : Land-Use based Integrated Sustainability Assessment modelling platform 

Description

Removal capacity is calculated as the product of dry deposition velocity and pollutant concentration (Wesely and Hicks, 2000), derived on the context of the LUISA modelling platform.

  • Abstract

    The report documents the structure, functions and algorithms used for the modeling of pollutant pathways in air, soil sediments and surface and sea water at the European continental scale. The algorithms are implemented in an extension for ESRI ArcGIS 9.2 a popular geographic information system (GIS) software widely used within the European Commission and in the research, environmental assessment, planning communities.

    The software is called MAPPE after Multimedia Assessment of Pollutant Pathways in Environment of Europe; the acronym is also the Italian word to denote maps. The purpose of the software is to provide a user-friendly way to convey the wealth of geographic data available to model the fluxes and concentrations of chemical pollutants emitted by industrial activities and other point emissions, and widespread use within households, urban environments or agriculture. The intended use is for organic contaminants such as pesticides, pharmaceuticals, VOCs, and other industrial chemicals. The output of the model, i.e. maps of concentration and chemical fluxes, can be used for the screening of hot spots at continental scale, the assessment of risk for human health and ecosystems, the evaluation of policies and scenarios with reference to the ┬┐big picture┬┐ of the continental scale. However this does not avoid the need to use more detailed, site specific assessment procedures for single problems, but provides a tool for decision support in contexts such as the management of priority substances of concern for soil, water and air quality, the control of effects of environmental pollution on human health

    and ecosystems, and the sustainable management of agro-chemicals, etc. by making available a geographic representation available of the consequences of emissions to air, soil and water compartments.

  • Abstract

    The LUISA land-use modelling framework is used routinely for integrated sustainability assessments of EC policies.. All policy impacts are assessed by comparing policy scenario model results with a reference scenario. This reference scenario is frequently updated to take into account new developments in land-use modelling practice, and to take into account new projections offered by the various sectoral models that supply information to LUISA. This report details all changes made in 2014 as updates to the EU Reference scenario 2013 with regard to land-use claims and the LUISA spatial allocation mechanism. Finally, new developments related to the reporting and visualization of LUISA model results are highlighted.
