Effects of metered entry volume on an oversaturated network with dynamic signal timing

Transportation Research Record, 2356(1), 53–60.

TL;DR: This paper analyzes the effects of different traffic metering levels at the entry points of a simulated signalized network to maintain efficient vehicle processing and suggests that an optimal congestion level exists inside the network that can be achieved by a metering strategy.

Improving uncertainty estimation in urban hydrological modeling by statistically describing bias

Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, 17(10), 4209–4225.

TL;DR: A structured approach to select, among five variants, the optimal bias de- scription for a given urban or natural case study and results clearly show that flow simulations are much more reliable when bias is accounted for than when it is neglected. (via Semantic Scholar)

Dynamic time warping improves sewer flow monitoring

Water Research, 47(11), 3803–3816.

By: D. Dürrenmatt*, D. Del Giudice* & J. Rieckermann*

Contributors: D. Dürrenmatt*, D. Del Giudice* & J. Rieckermann*

author keywords: Dynamic time warping; Sensor diagnosis; Sewer flow monitoring; Signal processing
MeSH headings : Computer Simulation; Models, Theoretical; Sewage; Switzerland; Temperature; Time Factors; Waste Disposal, Fluid / instrumentation; Waste Disposal, Fluid / methods; Wastewater / analysis; Water Quality
TL;DR: This paper improves sewer flow monitoring by creating redundant information on sewer velocity from natural wastewater tracer data, and shows that DTW outperforms XCORR, because it provides more accurate velocity estimates, with an error of about 7% under typical conditions, at a higher temporal resolution.

The surge standard for "events of Katrina magnitude"

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 110(29), E2665–E2666.

By: A. Kennedy*, J. Dietrich* & J. Westerink*

Contributors: A. Kennedy*, J. Dietrich* & J. Westerink*

MeSH headings : Climate Change; Cyclonic Storms / history; Models, Theoretical; Temperature; Water Movements
TL;DR: The analysis by Grinsted et al. (2) of the effects of rising temperatures on the frequency of Atlantic hurricane surge invokes “events of Katrina magnitude” as a standard by which other events are judged, but this benchmark is seriously flawed and casts doubt on the claim that Katrina-level surge events may occur many times per decade by the late 21st century.

Air Quality and Climate Impacts Due to CNG Conversion of Motor Vehicles in Dhaka, Bangladesh

Environmental Science & Technology, 47(24), 13907–13916.

By: Z. Wadud* & T. Khan*

Contributors: Z. Wadud* & T. Khan*

MeSH headings : Air Pollutants / analysis; Air Pollutants / economics; Air Pollution / analysis; Air Pollution / economics; Bangladesh; Carbon Dioxide / analysis; Cities; Climate; Data Collection; Greenhouse Effect / economics; Humans; Motor Vehicles; Natural Gas / analysis; Uncertainty; Vehicle Emissions / analysis
TL;DR: Ex-post the air quality and climate benefits of the CNG conversion policy, including monetary valuations, are quantified through an impact pathway approach, indicating that such policies can and should be undertaken on the grounds of improving local air pollution alone and that precautions should be taken to reduce the potentially unintended increases in GHG emissions or other unintended effects.

MeSH headings : Bayes Theorem; Environmental Monitoring; Lakes / analysis; Oxygen / analysis; Uncertainty
TL;DR: The change in the observed maximum extent between August and September is found to be sensitive to the corresponding variability in the hypolimnion thickness, and a simple exponential relationship based on the squared average measured bottom DO explains 97% of the estimated variability inThe hypoxic extent.
