Journal Article
Kuppili, S. K., Dheeraj Alshetty, V., Diya, M., Shiva Nagendra, S. M., Ramadurai, G., Ramesh, A., …De Vito, L. (2021). Characteristics of real-world gaseous exhaust emissions from cars in heterogeneous traffic conditions. Transportation Research Part D: Transport and Environment, 95, 102855. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.trd.2021.102855

In this study, researchers have explored real-world driving conditions and developed emission factors for 58 passenger cars using on-board emission measurement technique while driving on five different routes in Delhi. The measured average emission f... Read More about Characteristics of real-world gaseous exhaust emissions from cars in heterogeneous traffic conditions.

Traffic-related air pollution reduction at UK schools during the Covid-19 lockdown (2021)
Journal Article
Brown, L., Barnes, J., & Hayes, E. (2021). Traffic-related air pollution reduction at UK schools during the Covid-19 lockdown. Science of the Total Environment, 780, 146651. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.scitotenv.2021.146651

Elevated urban Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) is a consequence of road traffic and other fossil-fuel combustion sources, and the road transport sector provides a significant contribution to UK NO2 emissions. The inhalation of traffic-related air pollution, i... Read More about Traffic-related air pollution reduction at UK schools during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Applying social learning to climate communications- visualising 'people like me' in air pollution and climate change data (2021)
Journal Article
Fogg-Rogers, L., Hayes, E., Vanherle, K., Pápics, P. I., Chatterton, T., Barnes, J., …Longhurst, J. (2021). Applying social learning to climate communications- visualising 'people like me' in air pollution and climate change data. Sustainability, 13(6), https://doi.org/10.3390/su13063406

Technological approaches to carbon emission and air pollution data modelling consider where the issues are located and what is creating emissions. This paper argues that more focus should be paid to people-the drivers of vehicles or households burnin...
