Airborne pesticides may pose a threat to public health. Monitoring airborne pesticides, in real time, has substantial importance when dealing with risk assessment. The information of pesticide drifts in semi-arid and arid climate, such as in Israel, is limited and thus further investigation is needed.
Uri Lerner, Ph.D.
Exposure to air pollution has a proven impact on public health. Thus, arises the need for an accurate way to measure the level of exposure to various pollutants. Currently monitoring is obtained by stationary AQM (Air Quality Monitoring) stations, which are spread thinly due to size and cost.
Shai Moshenberg, M.Sc
Atmospheric data collection is a fundamental element is all atmospheric studies. Data collection is mainly done through field sensors networks that monitor pollution and other atmospheric variables. A common problem that hampers the use of the data is time series with missing samples, due to budget limits or technical issues.

This study evaluates different combinations of emission factors for surface phosphate mining by comparing AERMOD and CALPUFF dispersion modeling results to concentrations measured in the Khneifiss open pit phosphate mine, Syria (Othman and Al-Masri, 2007) and around Al-Hassa and Al-Abyad open pit phosphate mines, Jordan (Hamaiedth and El-Hasan, 2011) — the only works that reports measured TSP or PM10 and PM2.5 concentrations around open pit phosphate mines.
