The main objective of this thesis is to design a new aerosol layer height retrieval in order to improve the operational NO2 retrieval, both in the troposphere, from space-borne instruments for highly polluted events and under cloud-free conditions. This thesis focuses on the exploitation of the OMI satellite measurements acquired in the visible...

This paper reviews the state of art of vegetation systems and their effect on the indoor environmental quality (IEQ), based on scientific studies from the past 30 years. Some studies have shown that biophilic workspaces and interaction with plants may change human attitudes, behaviours, improve productivity and the overall well-being....

Nitrogen oxides (NOx) are important air pollutants and play a crucial role in climate change. NOx emissions are important for chemical transport models to simulate and forecast air quality. Up-to-date emission information also helps policymakers to mitigate air pollution. In this thesis, we have focused on providing better NOx emission estimates...

Climate policy has a strong influence on policy processes at national levels in Indonesia, while other policies with a focus on air quality improvement are being implemented at local levels. Indonesia as a developing country has committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 29 percent by the year 2030. This calls into question the...

The context for this thesis is the concern that people who practice physical activity are more susceptible to air pollution. For the studies presented here, three perspectives of physical activity were considered: in indoor, i) physical activity in fitness centers; in outdoor ii) the use of bicycle in cycle paths; and iii) active transportation....

Trajectory optimisation is one option to reduce air traffic impact on environment. A multidimensional environmental assessment framework is needed to optimize impact on climate, local air quality and noise simultaneously. An interface between flight planning and environmental impact information can be established with environmental cost...

Scarcity of resources and environmental issues caused by human activities stimulate designers and policy makers to search for energy efficient strategies for sustainable development. A considerable amount of energy consumption and CO2 emission comes from the building sector which today accounts for 40% of the world’s energy use. Greenery systems...

Technology for the low-income group of people should be as simple as their daily life. Giving recommendations for simple dwelling design and changing people’s behaviour for a better living are the concerns of this research. A field-survey was conducted in November-December 2010 involving 426 respondents from four low-income kampongs in Surakarta...

Occupants in air-tight houses and with poorly maintained mechanical ventilation systems have stimulated the study of health hazards of housing. Five hundred houses were inspected, to diagnose the relation between lay-out, construction, technical services, interior decorations and potential indoor air pollution or problems with noise and safety....
