  15. 15. AQ improvement and decline in Hamilton ON 2005-2010 From: Adams M.D., et al. 2012. Mobile Air Monitoring: Measuring Change in Air Quality in the City of Hamilton, 2005–2010. Soc Indic Res 108:351364
  16. 16. “Stationary monitoring indicated air quality improvement from 2005 to 2010, whereas mobile monitoring indicated areas that experience both improvement and decline…”
  17. 17. 4.NPS DEFINED
  18. 18. Definition Non-point sources are aggregated sources of air emissions, as opposed to individual identifiable sources of emissions (point sources). This aggregation is done because the emission sources are either too small and numerous, too geographically dispersed, or too geographically large to be estimated or represented by a single point.
  19. 19. Examples on NPS Residential Fuel Combustion (e.g. home heating); Commercial Fuel Combustion (e.g. space and water heating); Residential Fuel Wood Combustion (e.g. fire places, wood burning stoves); Transportation (e.g. on-road and offroad vehicles, air, rail, etc). Incineration (cremation, industrial, commercial); Cigarette Smoking; Dry Cleaning; General Solvent Use; Meat Cooking; Refined Petroleum Products Retail (gas stations); Printing; Structural Fires; Surface Coatings; Agriculture (animals, tilling & wind erosion, fertilizer application); Construction Operations; Road Dust (paved and unpaved roads); Waste; Mine Tailings; Prescribed Burning; Biogenics (soils and plants); Forest Fires; etc.
