TitleLandelijk Meetnet Luchtkwaliteit. Meetresultaten 1994. Deel 2: Regio 4 Zuid-Holland, Regio 5 Noord-Holland
Translated TitleDutch National Air Quality Monitoring Network. Monitoring results for 1994. Part 2: Region 4 (Zuid-Holland), Region 5 (Noord-Holland)
PubliekssamenvattingBetreft de meetresultaten van de regionale stations in samengevatte vorm. Over de volgende periodes wordt gerapporteerd: het kalenderjaar 1994, de zomer van 1994, de winter van 1993-1994 en van 1 april 1993 t/m 31 maart 1994 (meteorologisch jaar: EG-referentieperiode). De tabellen bevatten informatie over de componenten fijn stof (PM10), CO, Ox (=NO2+O3), O3, NO2, NO, NOx (=NO2+NO), zwarte rook (= zwevende deeltjes gemeten volgens de zwarte rook-methode) en SO2. De meetresultaten van fijn stof (PM10) zijn gecorrigeerd voor de systematische onderschatting veroorzaakt door een systematische afwijking van de PM10 afscheider. Tevens is voor alle stations nagegaan of de Nederlandse grenswaarden voor deze componenten in 1994 zijn overschreden. Op landelijk niveau werden overschrijdingen van de grenswaarden voor zwarte rook, PM10 en O3 waargenomen. De grenswaarden voor SO2, NO2 en CO zijn niet overschreden.<br>
This report presents tabulated National Air Quality Monitoring Network results for the regions Zuid-Holland and Noord-Holland for the calendar year 1994, summer 1994, winter 1993-1994 and 1 April 1993 - 31 March 1994 (tropical year: EC reference period). The components monitored were: fine dust (PM10), CO, Ox (=NO2+O3), O3, NO2, NO, NOx (=NO2+NO), black smoke (= suspended matter measured by the black-smoke method) and SO2. The fine dust (PM10) measurements were corrected for a systematic underestimation caused by the sampler. In a check made at all stations in the network for exceedance of Dutch limit values in 1994, exceedances for black smoke, PM10 and O3 were observed. The limit values for SO2, NO2 and CO were not exceeded.<br>

Ontwikkeling en toepassing van een Milieukwaliteitsindicator BestrijdingsmiddelenPeijnenburg WJGM; Hollander HA den; Luttik R; Meent D van de; Zwart D de; LAC; ECO; CSR (Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu RIVM, 2000-07-20)The development and application of an environmental quality indicator for pesticides are presented. The indi-cator is of the so-called distance-to-target type and is based upon measured concentrations of pesticides in the distinct environmental compartments. At various levels of aggregation, the indicator relates concentrations of pesticides to the policy aims for 2010 (Dutch target values). It has been applied to monitoring data of pesticides in Dutch surface waters and in rainwater. It is shown that target values for pesti-cides in surface waters are exceeded considerably. There is, however, a trend of decreasing levels in surface waters at the national aggregation level during the years 1992-1994, followed by stabilization during the years 1994 - 1996. Exceedance of target values is more pronounced in Dutch regional waters than in the major Dutch rivers. Pesticides that have been banned in the Netherlands exceeded the target values for surface water only slightly during the period 1992 - 1996. Higher levels of pesticides are generally found in rainwater than in surface water. This is also the case for pesticides that have been banned, and es-pecially when it is taken into account that only limited data regarding their occurrence in rainwater are available, concentrations of banned pesticides in rainwater tend to stabilize. When interpreting the values of the quality indicator given in this report, it should be taken into account that these values fully depend upon the quality of the underlying moni-tor-ing data, as well as upon the sampling strategies that were followed by the managers of the monitor programmes. It was not possible to check the quality of the individual data present in the underlying data-bases and the inherent uncertainties in these data, within the scope of this report.
SimpleBox 2.0: a nested multimedia fate model for evaluating the environmental fate of chemicalsBrandes LJ; Hollander H den; Meent D van de; ECO (Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu RIVM, 1996-12-31)SimpleBox is a nested multimedia box model of the 'Mackay type'. The environment is modeled as consisting of a set of well-mixed homogeneous compartments (air, fresh water, sea water, sediments, three soil compartments and two vegetation compartments) in regional, continental and global spatial scales. The model takes emission rates and rate constants for transport and transformation of micropollutants as input and computes steady-state concentrations in the environment as output. SimpleBox is a generic model which can be customised to represent specific environmental situations. In its default setting, the SimpleBox computation represents the behaviour of micropollutants in a regional and continental spatial scale; representing a densely populated Western European region, and the whole of the European Union, respectively. The present version of the model was produced as a starting point for a project aimed at validation of the intended use of the model in harmonisation of environmental quality objectives of air, water, and soil in the Netherlands. SimpleBox 2.0 has also served as a basis for the regional/continental distribution module into the European Union System for Evaluation of Substances (EUSES). This report is meant to provide the technical documentation that is necessary to serve these purposes.
Spatial and seasonal variations of Acid Volatile Sulfide (AVS) and Simultaneously Extracted Metals (SEM) in Dutch marine and freshwater sedimentsHoop MAGT van den; Hollander HA den; Kerdijk HN; LAC; ECO; Delft Hydraulics (Rijksinstituut voor Volksgezondheid en Milieu RIVM, 1995-06-30)Within the framework of the project Exposure Assessment, Acid Volatile Sulfide (AVS) and Simultaneously Extracted Metal (SEM) contents of Dutch marine and freshwater sediments were determined. For the present set of fifteen marine and six freshwater sediments AVS levels vary between non-detectable (<0.1) and approximately 50 notmol per gram dry sediment. The SEM/AVS ratio was found to be smaller than one in nineteen cases. Furthermore, seasonal variations in AVS and SEM concentrations were observed that may change the potential toxicity of metals in sediments. Seasonal changes in the SEM/AVS ratio were found to be different for various sediments.
