Multiple models to inform climate change policy: A pragmatic response to the 'beyond the ABC' debate (2011)
Journal Article
Wilson, C., & Chatterton, T. (2011). Multiple models to inform climate change policy: A pragmatic response to the 'beyond the ABC' debate. Environment and Planning A, 43(12), 2781-2787. https://doi.org/10.1068/a44404

We have followed with interest the debate in this journal between Shove (2010; 2011) and Whitmarsh & colleagues (2011) on contrasting theoretical approaches and representations of pro-environmental behaviour and social change, and of the potential, r...

Spatial variations in airborne microorganism and endotoxin concentrations at green waste composting facilities (2011)
Journal Article
Pollard, S. J., Longhurst, J. W., Hayes, E. T., Pankhurst, L. J., Deacon, L. J., Liu, J., …Tyrrel, S. F. (2011). Spatial variations in airborne microorganism and endotoxin concentrations at green waste composting facilities. International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Health, 214(5), 376-383. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijheh.2011.06.001

The emission and dispersal of bioaerosols from open-air commercial composting facilities continues to be contentious. A meta-dataset enumerating cultivable microorganism emission and downwind concentrations is not yet available. A dataset derived fro...

Improving road transport-related air quality in England through joint working between Environmental Health Officers and Transport Planners (2011)
Journal Article
Olowoporoku, D., Olowoporoku, A., Hayes, E., Longhurst, J., & Parkhurst, G. (2011). Improving road transport-related air quality in England through joint working between Environmental Health Officers and Transport Planners. Local Environment, 16(7), 603-618. https://doi.org/10.1080/13549839.2011.582859

In this paper the necessity for effective joint working arrangements between Environmental Health Officers and Transport Planners is demonstrated as a fundamental prerequisite for successful management of traffic-related air quality in English local...

Evaluation of inflammatory effects of airborne endotoxin emitted from composting sources (2011)
Journal Article
Tyrrel, S. F., Longhurst, P. J., Drew, G. H., Hayes, E. T., Deacon, L. J., Pankhurst, L. J., …Jackson, S. K. (2011). Evaluation of inflammatory effects of airborne endotoxin emitted from composting sources. Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, 30(3), 602-606. https://doi.org/10.1002/etc.434

Because of the lack of effective methodology, the biological effects of environmental endotoxin have not been assessed. Here we have collected and measured airborne endotoxin at different locations around composting sites. Increased endotoxin concent...
