    • Bias-adjustment method for street-scale air quality models 

      Armengol, J.M.; Criado, A.; Benavides, Jaime; Jorba Casellas, Oriol; Guevara Vilardell, Marc; Soret, Albert (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, 2021-05)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Air quality (AQ) is a growing concern, especially in urban areas where high-density populated regions are exposed to frequent exceedances of regulated pollutants. To take action in reducing citizen exposure to pollution, ...
    • CALIOPE-Urban v1.0: coupling R-LINE with a mesoscale air quality modelling system for urban air quality forecasts over Barcelona city (Spain) 

      Benavides, Jaime; Snyder, Michelle; Guevara Vilardell, Marc; Soret, Albert; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos; Amato, Fulvio; Querol, Xavier; Jorba Casellas, Oriol (Copernicus Publications, 2019)
      Article
      Open Access
      he NO2 annual air quality limit value is systematically exceeded in many European cities. In this context, understanding human exposure, improving policy and planning, and providing forecasts requires the development of ...
    • Development and evaluation of a street-scale air quality modelling system for the city of Barcelona 

      Benavides, Jaime (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-02-18)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Air pollution is known to cause detrimental health effects in cities and specially on the most vulnerable population. Having access to reliable air pollutant concentration data at street-level in urban areas can be crucial ...
    • Local traffic contribution to black carbon horizontal and vertical profiles in compact urban areas 

      Benavides, Jaime; Guevara Vilardell, Marc; Jorba Casellas, Oriol (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, 2019-05-07)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Urban air pollution is characterized by strong spatial gradients produced by the presence of heavily trafficked streets. Given the negative health effects of air pollution, decision makers are implementing policies to ...
    • On the impact of excess diesel NOX emissions upon NO2 pollution in a compact city 

      Benavides, Jaime; Guevara Vilardell, Marc; Snyde, Michelle G; Rodríguez Rey, Daniel; Soret, Albert; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos; Jorba Casellas, Oriol (IOP Publishing Ltd, 2021)
      Article
      Open Access
      NOX emissions from diesel light-duty-vehicles (LDV) largely exceed the Euro emission standards in real-world driving conditions. Recent studies have quantified their impact upon air quality and human health primarily based ...
    • Testing simple models for street wind conditions in Barcelona 

      Benavides, Jaime; Jorba Casellas, Oriol; Soret, Albert; Guevara Vilardell, Marc (Barcelona Supercomputing Center, 2017-05-04)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Street wind speed and direction drive models to estimate air quality levels at street scale. In this study, simple models are combined with a mesoscale meteorological model to provide wind conditions at street level. Then, ...
    • To what extent the traffic restriction policies applied in Barcelona city can improve its air quality? 

      Rodríguez Rey, Daniel; Guevara Vilardell, Marc; Linares Herreros, María Paz; Casanovas Prats, Josep; Mateu Armengol, Jan; Benavides, Jaime; Soret Miravet, Albert; Jorba Casellas, Oriol; Tena Medina, Carles; Pérez García-Pando, Carlos (Elsevier, 2022-02-10)
      Article
      Open Access
      Barcelona city (Spain) is applying a series of traffic restriction measures that aim at renewing and reducing the amount of circulating vehicles to improve air quality. The measures include changes in the built environment ...
    • What we can learn from birdsong: Mainstreaming teleworking in a post-pandemic world 

      Bojovic, Dragana; Benavides, Jaime; Soret, Albert (Elsevier, 2020-09)
      Article
      Open Access
      Many urban areas suffer from poor air quality as a consequence of high levels of car-based traffic. Even cities with well-developed multi-modal public transport networks and favourable conditions for alternative transportation, ...
