Diurnal, seasonal, and annual trends in tropospheric CO in Southwest London during 2000–2015: Wind sector analysis and comparisons with urban and remote sites

first_imgAmbient carbon monoxide (CO) and meteorological parameters measured at the Egham (EGH) semi-rural site in SW London during 2000–2015 have permitted wind sector analysis of diurnal and seasonal cycles, and interpretation of long-term trends. CO daily amplitudes are used as a proxy for anthropogenic emissions. At EGH, morning and evening peaks in CO arise from the dominant contribution of road transport sources. Smaller amplitudes are observed during weekends than weekdays due to lower combustion emissions, and for mornings compared to evenings due to the timing of the development and break-up of the nocturnal inversion layer or planetary boundary layer (PBL). A wavelet transform revealed that the dominant mode of CO variability is the annual cycle, with apparent winter maxima likely due to increased CO emissions from domestic heating with summer minima ascribed to enhanced dispersion and dilution during the annual maximum of PBL mixing heights. Over the last two decades, both mitigation measures to reduce CO emissions and also a major switch to diesel cars, have accompanied a change at EGH from the dominance of local diurnal sources to a site measuring close to Atlantic background levels in summer months. CO observed in the S and SW wind sectors has declined by 4.7 and 5.9 ppb yr−1 respectively. The EGH CO record shows the highest levels in the early 2000s, with levels in E and calm winds comparable to those recorded at background stations in Greater London. However, since 2012, levels in S-SW sector have become more comparable with Mace Head background except during rush-hour periods. Marked declines in CO are observed during 2000–2008 for the NE, E, SE (London) and calm wind sectors, with the smallest declines observed for the S, SW and W (background) sectors. For the majority of wind sectors, the decline in CO is less noticeable since 2008, with an apparent stabilisation for NE, E and SE after 2009. The EGH CO data record exhibits a similar but slower exponential decay, but from a much lower starting concentration, than do CO data recorded at selected monitoring sites in urban areas in SE England. CO/CO2 residuals determined using a 1 h window data in the diurnal cycle demonstrate a clear decline in CO from 2000 to 2015 during daily periods of increased vehicle traffic, which is consistent with a sustained reduction in CO emissions from the road transport sector.last_img read more

Russia Postpones Delivery of SSN Nerpa to India

first_img View post tag: postpones Share this article View post tag: SSN January 17, 2012 Russia will hand over SSN Nerpa to India for lease on Jan 23, said an informed Indian military source on Jan 14.“The parties have signed all appropriate documents, and acceptance panel has finished its work. The date of flag-hoisting ceremony to be held in the Far East is set on Jan 23. When the blanket hiding the sub’s new name – INS Chakra – is pulled off, the submarine will head for Indian coast. The journey will take at least 20 days. Indian crew is already working in the sub backed up by ten Russian submariners”, said the source of Interfax.Earlier on, an informed source told that Russia would lease SSN Nerpa to Indian Navy on Jan 19. According to the $650-mln contract, Russia leases nuclear-powered submarine Nerpa to India for 10 years.SSN Nerpa was supposed to join Indian Navy in 2008. However, during sea trials in Nov 2008 an accident happened to the sub due to unauthorized operation of automatic firefighting system; the tragedy claimed 20 lives. Delivery date was revised and then postponed many times because of non-availability of onboard combat systems.In Indian Navy, the submarine will obtain the name of Chakra – that was the first nuclear-powered submarine leased by the Soviet Union to India in 1988 for 3 years.Project 971I Schuka-B (known in NATO as Akula) SSN Nerpa is a third-generation submarine armed with torpedoes, rocket torpedoes, and Granat cruise missiles with flight range of 3,200 km. Due to restrictions provided by international agreements on missile technology non-proliferation, a submarine leased to India must not be armed with long-range missiles. For this reason, the sub has 300-km Club-S missile system instead of Granat.Displacement is 8,140/12,770 tons; max speed is 30 knots; test depth is 600 meters; endurance is 100 days; crew is 73 men. In total, 15 subs of this project have been built since 1984.In 1988 India took on lease Soviet SSN K-43 Chakra (Project 670 Skat) for 3 years. In 1991 the lease term was over and Soviet government declined to prolong the leasing contract, allegedly, under coercion of the US Administration.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, January 17, 2012; Image: RusNavy View post tag: India View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Naval Russia Postpones Delivery of SSN Nerpa to India View post tag: ‘Nerpa’ Back to overview,Home naval-today Russia Postpones Delivery of SSN Nerpa to India View post tag: Navy View post tag: Russia Industry news View post tag: DELIVERYlast_img read more

European navies to test amphibious capabilities in Italy

first_img Navy ships and personnel from eight European countries are set to begin the second European amphibious exercise Emerald Move 2016 (ERMO) off the coast of the Italian island of Sardinia on Monday, October 3.The ERMO 16 is an undertaking of the European Amphibious Initiative (EAI), an organization which aims to strengthen the interoperability of European forces and optimize and improve European amphibious operations capabilities through training and exercises.The last time the EU conducted this exercise was November 2010 on West Africa’s Atlantic coast, near Dakar.Next week’s training event will see eight EAI Member States Navies converging on the Central Tyrrhenian Sea for amphibious warfare training.Participating units will include the Italian Aircraft carrier ITS Cavour, FREMM frigate Carabiniere and Todaro-class submarine Pietro Venuti which was commissioned by the Italian Navy in July this year.France is sending the lead ship of its Mistral-class landing helicopter docks LHD Mistral while the Netherlands is contributing with the landing platform dock HNLMS Rotterdam. Spain will be represented by the multi-purpose amphibious assault ship SPS Juan Carlos I and frigate SPS Numancia.Turkey will send landing ship, tank Osmangazi and the United Kingdom, Belgium and Portugal will participate with troops ashore.Apart from EAI member nations units, NATO’s standing mine countermeasures group two (SNMCMG2) will also be involved in the exercise.About 4000 men and women engaged, 8 ships, 1 submarine, 9 aircraft AV8B Plus and 18 helicopters will be under the control of Italian Navy Fleet Commander, Vice Admiral Donato Marzano while the Cagliari Naval Base will provide logistic support.According to the Italian Navy, the aim of the ERMO 16 is to test the “Expeditionary” capacity of the European Amphibious Initiative amphibious force far from home waters and capable to operate thanks to the support provided by ships at sea. The ultimate goal of the joint training across several navies and several landing forces is to reach full integration and interoperability among the EAI forces.
