    • Potential for Wind-Generated Electricity in China 

      McElroy, Michael Brendon; Lu, Xi; Nielsen, Chris; Wang, Yuxuan (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2009)
      Wind offers an important alternative to coal as a source of energy for generation of electricity in China with the potential for substantial savings in carbon dioxide emissions. Wind fields derived from assimilated ...
    • Prospects for shale gas production in China: Implications for water demand 

      Guo, Meiyu; Lu, Xi; Nielsen, Chris; McElroy, Michael Brendon; Shi, Wenrui; Chen, Yuntian; Xu, Yuan (Elsevier BV, 2016)
      Development of shale gas resources is expected to play an important role in China's projected transition to a low-carbon energy future. The question arises whether the availability of water could limit this development. ...
    • Quantifying the Uncertainties of a Bottom-Up Emission Inventory of Anthropogenic Atmospheric Pollutants in China 

      Zhao, Y.; Nielsen, Chris P.; Lei, Yu; McElroy, Michael Brendon; Hao, J. (European Geosciences Union, 2011)
      The uncertainties of a national, bottom-up inventory of Chinese emissions of anthropogenic \(SO_2\), \(NO_x\), and particulate matter (PM) of different size classes and carbonaceous species are comprehensively quantified, ...
    • Recent Changes in Particulate Air Pollution over China Observed from Space and the Ground: Effectiveness of Emission Control 

      Lin, Jintai; Nielsen, Chris; Zhao, Yu; Lei, Yu; Liu, Yang; McElroy, Michael Brendon (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2010)
      The Chinese government has moved aggressively since 2005 to reduce emissions of a number of pollutants including primary particulate matter (PM) and sulfur dioxide (SO2), efforts inadvertently aided since late 2008 by ...
    • Soil Acidification in China: Is Controlling SO 2 Emissions Enough? 

      Zhao, Yu; Duan, Lei; Xing, Jia; Larssen, Thorjorn; Nielsen, Chris; Hao, Jiming (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2009)
      Facing challenges of increased energy consumption and related regional air pollution, China has been aggressively implementing flue gas desulfurization (FGD) and phasing out small inefficient units in the power sector in ...
    • Valuing Mortality Risk in China: Comparing Stated-Preference Estimates From 2005 and 2016 

      Geng, Fangli; Guo, Xiaoqing; Hammitt, James; Nielsen, Chris (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-06)
      We estimate the marginal rate of substitution of income for reduction in current annual mortality risk (the “value per statistical life” or VSL) using stated- preference surveys administered to independent samples of the ...
    • Variations of \(O_3\) and CO in Summertime at a Rural Site Near Beijing 

      Wang, Yuxuan; McElroy, Michael Brendon; Munger, J. William; Hao, Jiming; Ma, Hong; Nielsen, Chris; Chen, Yaosheng (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2008)
      Large intra-season differences in mixing ratios of CO and \(O_3\) were detected at Miyun, a rural site north of Beijing, in summer 2006. Despite an increase in mean daytime mixing ratio of CO from 500 ppbv in June to 700 ...
    • Will PM control undermine China’s efforts to reduce soil acidification? 

      Zhao, Yu; Lei, Yu; Duan, Lei; Xing, Jia; Nielsen, Chris; Hao, Jiming (Elsevier BV, 2011)
      China’s strategies to control acidifying pollutants and particulate matter (PM) may be in conflict for soil acidification abatement. Acidifying pollutant emissions are estimated for 2005 and 2020 with anticipated control ...
    • Year round measurements of O3 and CO at a rural site near Beijing: variations in their correlations 

      Wang, Yuxuan; Hao, Jiming; McElroy, Michael Brendon; Munger, J. William; Ma, Hong; Nielsen, Chris; Zhang, Yuqiang (Co-Action Publishing, 2010)
      We examine seasonal variations of carbon monoxide (CO), ozone (O3), and their relationships observed over the course of 3 yr (2005–2007) at Miyun, a rural site 100 km north of Beijing. Monthly mean afternoon mixing ratios ...
