Assessment of Carbon Footprint Organization and Analysis of Appropriate Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Measures: Case Study PTA Factory in Thailand

Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) become a mandate for counties that ratified the Kyoto protocol. Mainly, each county has to identify and develop greenhouse gas mitigation in their country. Thailand must prepare how to reduce greenhouse gas emission efficiently in the future. The petrochemical industry has high contribution of greenhouse gas emission and also capability


Depositions of Acid Aerosols and Black Carbon from Biomass Burning Over the Sakaerat Biosphere Reserve Forest, Thailand

Burning of biomass is an important source of acid aerosols and black carbon emissions into the atmosphere. In the tropics, the formation of secondary organic and inorganic aerosols depends on meteorological parameters. High humidity and rain washout both reduces air borne aerosol concentrations. We monitored the concentrations of aerosols associated with biomass burning from July


Fog: An Important Water Source in Arid Zones

In semiarid and arid zones, fog is considered an important alternative water source. The southeast Pacific anticyclone, the cold Humboldt Current and the rugged topography that characterize the North of Chile, promotes the formation of low stratocumulus along the coastline. The thermally induced winds move this low clouds eastwards and, in those hills of the


Urban Ventilation, Improving the Wind Environment in High Density Cities by Undrestanding Urban Morphology

There is clear evidence that Heat island has changed cities microclimate from their original and it has led to increased overheating risk, longer summer periods and higher energy consumption for cooling. Understanding of the relation between urban morphology and favorable wind conditions could provide a key to avoid such serious episodes and to improve the
