The present study pursues the aim of modelling and forecasting atmospheric PM 10 concentration in an Italian limestone quarry. The first part consists in identifying according to a simple procedure dust sources in quarrying area connected with working activity.

Abstract

The present study pursues the aim of modelling and forecasting atmospheric PM 10 concentration in an Italian limestone quarry. The first part consists in identifying according to a simple procedure dust sources in quarrying area connected with working activity. Then, after the preliminary characterization of dust sources according with an active monitoring system, dust concentration (PM10) is sampled together with the most important environmental parameters such as pressure, temperature, atmospheric humidity, wind direction and speed. Then emission rate for each quarrying source is determined according with an ISC3 ST inverse simulation. In this phase typical quarry activities are characterized with particular care of crushing, drilling, riddling, materials loading and unloading, transport etc. Therefore including these classified emissions in a complex simulation, the assessment of PM 10 concentration is realized according with an ISC3 model. The final part is based on the evaluation of obtained results: a set of points is chosen and the comparison between sampled values and forecasted ones is realized. © 2006 Taylor & Francis Group.
