Risk Management and Remediation of Chemical Accidents (RIMA)

Start date: Dec 31, 2010, End date: Nov 30, 2013,

Based on an existing framework of ship exhaust emission estimation, SNOOP aims to take the strategic evaluation of ship emission effects to a new level by enlargement the scope from nitrogen oxides to SOx, PM, CO, CO2 emissions. The cause-effect chains are studied by monitoring ambient air quality and estimating its human health effects in harbour areas, by modelling the nitrogen input from ship e ...
