Quantification of stack emissions from marine vessels
Paper in proceedings, 2016

Ship emission data from fixed and mobile platforms were obtained during 5 weeks in October and November of 2015. The main objective was to study the "real life" ship emissions of gases and particles in different modes of ship operation in the vicinity of the harbor, from open sea to berth. These emissions can be used to calculate the impact of shipping activities on air quality in the LA basin. Since ships are supposed to run on low sulfur fuel it is interesting how the new low sulfur fuel impacts also emissions of particles, in addition to sulfur. During the project we found several ships running on high sulfur fuel. During the presentation we will describe the method and show example of data from the project.
