Environmental Engineering

Background:

This doctoral programme was first offered in the academic year 1986-1987. At the time, the name of the programme was Water Engineering. The programme, organised by the Department of Engineering Design of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, was offered under this name in the academic years 1986-1987 and 1987-1988. In the 1988-1989 academic year, the degree was renamed the doctoral programme in Environmental Engineering. From the 1989-1990 academic year, the programme was delivered mainly at the Institute of Applied Petrochemistry (IPA) and later at the Institute of Environmental Modelling and Technology (ITEMA), both institutes of the UPC. Since May 1999, the doctoral degree has been an interdepartmental programme. For organisational purposes, it is currently based at the Department of Engineering Design. This degree can be considered the first doctoral programme in environmental engineering offered in Spain.

Based on a call issued in February 1995, the Directorate-General for Higher Education of the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science included the doctoral programme in Environmental Engineering on a list of high-quality doctoral degrees.

Objectives:

The aim of this programme is to enable doctoral students to acquire research skills in the field of environmental engineering, particularly in the following research areas: environmental modelling (atmospheric and water quality), waste management, environmental impact assessment, environmental management systems, noise, industrial wastewater, groundwater, remediation of contaminated soils, and treatment technologies.

Competencies that must be acquired by students (based on the Dublin descriptors). Students must:

• demonstrate systematic understanding of a field of study of the programme and mastery of the skills and methods of research associated with that field;
• demonstrate the ability to conceive, design, implement and adapt a substantial process of research with scholarly integrity;
• have made a contribution through original research that extends the frontier of knowledge by developing a substantial body of work, some of which merits national or international refereed publication;
• be capable of critical analysis, evaluation and synthesis of new and complex ideas;
• be able to communicate with their peers, the larger scholarly community and society in general about their areas of expertise;
• be able to promote, in academic and professional contexts, technological, social or cultural advancement in a knowledge-based society.

Rationale:

In the contemporary world, the importance of environmental issues, both locally and at the global level, is beyond dispute. The importance of environmental issues was clearly recognised in three key Earth Summits: the UN Conference on the Human Environment, held in Stockholm, Sweden in June 1972; the UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in June 1992; and the World Summit on Sustainable Development (informally known as “Rio+10”) held in Johannesburg, South Africa in August–September 2002. The problem of climate change, for which there is conclusive scientific evidence, and the legal framework defined in the Kyoto Protocol also underscore the pressing need to tackle environmental issues. All of these factors clearly justify the need for a doctoral programme that provides students with advanced research training in these areas.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is three years, counted from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is five years, counting from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. For calculating these periods, the date of admission is considered to be the date of the first enrolment for tutorials, and the date of submission the moment in which the Doctoral School officially deposits the doctoral thesis.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years. When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the minimum period of study requirement.

The calculation of periods of study will not include periods of absence due to illness, pregnancy or any other reason provided for in the regulations in force. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which, where appropriate, must inform the Doctoral School. Doctoral candidates may also temporarily withdraw from the programme for up to one year, and this period may be extended for an additional year. Doctoral candidates who wish to interrupt their studies must submit a justified request to the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which will decide whether or not to approve the request. Each programme will establish conditions for readmission to doctoral studies.

Extension
If full-time doctoral candidates have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, the academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year. In exceptional circumstances, a further one-year extension may be granted, subject to the conditions established by the corresponding doctoral programme. In the case of part-time doctoral candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

All applications received will be assessed before each enrolment period (twice during the academic year). The academic committee will decide which applicants to admit and will communicate its decision via the same intranet used for the application process. Admissions will only be valid for the academic year in which the corresponding application was submitted.

Assessment and selection
The assessment and selection process will be conducted in two stages:
1. Assessment and scoring of points A to H by the academic committee (maximum possible score: 100 points). Applicants who obtain a score of less than 75 points will not progress to the next stage and will not be admitted to the doctoral programme in Environmental Engineering.

2. In the second stage, the remaining applicants will be interviewed (criterion I). The maximum possible score for the interview is 100 points. Applicants who receive a score of less than 75 points will not be admitted to the programme.
At the end of the selection process, applicants with a score of 150 or more out of 200 will be deemed eligible for admission to the doctoral programme in Environmental Engineering. The list of eligible applicants (ordered by score) will be published.
Applicants will be admitted to the doctoral programme in the order in which they appear on this list until all available places are filled. Eligible applicants who are not admitted to the programme will be placed on a reserve list in order of the score obtained. These applicants may be admitted to the programme if any of the admitted applicants give up their places.

Training complements

Applicants who have completed a master's degree in environmental engineering, environmental sciences or a related field (engineering, chemistry, physics, etc.) do not need to take any bridging courses.
In the case of students admitted with other degrees, the academic committee will review each student's curriculum vitae and indicate the bridging courses that they must take from among subjects of the master’s degree in Environmental Engineering. Bridging courses may provide research or cross-disciplinary training, but in no case may doctoral students be required to enrol for 60 or more ECTS credits. In such cases, the committee will keep track of the bridging courses completed and establish appropriate criteria to limit their duration.
Taking into account the doctoral student activity report, the academic committee may propose measures that complement those specified in these regulations and which result in doctoral students who do not meet the specified requirements being excluded from the programme.
As indicated at the start of this section, when students are admitted, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may define requirements for additional methodological or scientific training on a case-by-case basis according to each student’s academic background and experience. The bridging courses students are required to take will be subjects of the master's degree linked to the programme: the UPC’s master’s degree in Environmental Engineering. Thesis supervisors who note gaps in a student’s training or believe they need additional advanced training in one or more subjects related to their doctoral thesis may require that the student concerned complete additional training specific to their needs. This additional training will involve students attending specialised courses, seminars and/or workshops, and/or completing stays at research centres to complete their training in specific areas related to their thesis topic.
Any bridging courses specified by the academic committee of the doctoral programme as a condition for admission must be completed within a year and a half (18 months). Students who have not successfully completed any bridging courses required within their first 18 months in the programme may be excluded by the academic committee.
In the case of additional training required by thesis supervisors or academic tutors, the time limit is 12 months from the time that students are informed of this requirement. Thesis supervisors or academic tutors may request that the academic committee exclude students who do not meet training requirements within this time period.

Enrolment period for new doctoral students

In September and October (dates to be confirmed each academic year). Extraordinary enrolment period in February.

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

More information at the PhD theses section

Permanence

The academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year for full-time doctoral candidates who have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, in the terms outlined in the Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In the case of part-time candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

International Mention

The doctoral degree certificate may include International Doctorate mention. In this case, the doctoral candidate must meet the following requirements:

a) During the period of study leading to the award of the doctoral degree, the doctoral candidate must have spent at least three months at a respected higher education institution or research centre outside Spain to complete courses or do research work. The stays and activities carried out must be endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorised by the academic committee of the programme. The candidate must provide a certifying document issued by the person responsible for the research group of the body or bodies where the stay or activity was completed. This information will be added to the doctoral student’s activity report.
b) Part of the thesis (at least the summary and conclusions) must be written and presented in one of the languages commonly used for science communication in the relevant field of knowledge, which must not be an official language of Spain. This rule does not apply to stays and reports in Spanish or to experts from Spanish-speaking countries.
c) At least two PhD-holding experts belonging to a higher education institution or research centre outside Spain must have issued officially certified reports on the thesis.
d) The thesis examination committee must have included at least one PhD-holding expert from a higher education or research institution outside Spain who was not responsible for the candidate’s stay abroad (point a) above).
e) The thesis defence must have taken place on UPC premises or, in the case of joint programmes, at the location specified in the collaboration agreement.

    Thesis abstract: CO2 geological storage is considered one of the options technologically viable in order to decrease the industrial emissions of this gas species that strongly contribute to the greenhouse effect in the atmosphere (IPCC, 2005). As naturally, oil and gas are stored in porous rocks that have the same key geological features required for CO2 storage, so CCS aim to recreate a natural process to trap carbon dioxide for millions of years into deep saline aquifer or depleted oil and gas fields. Episodic release of CO2 from underground can occur from either natural processes (i.e., mantle degassing, thermal decarbonation, volcanic areas) or industrial (geological storage of CO2, CCS). Because of leakage can occur at every step of a CCS project, monitoring assumes an important role not only during and after injection but also before in order to know the state of the entire site from deep underground (reservoir level) to surface. In this respect, the use of atmospheric dispersion numerical models helps predicting the dispersion of the CO2-enriched gas plume once emitted from underground and allows an accurate map of risk level through time under particular meteorological conditions. The aim of this PhD. project is to give a better understanding of CO2 behaviour in the unsaturated zone and its atmospheric dispersion. The results are obtained from experimental and numerical modelling of CO2 leakage from an artificial leakage site and from natural analogues applied to risk assessment for CCS sites. To reach the above-mentioned targets and to prove results, this research plan combines experimental activity on site and numerical modelling. The first part of the research plan consisted of a contribution in the PISCO2 project at the ES.CO2 facilities placed in Ponferrada (Spain). The objective of this project was to predict how the injected CO2 will move laterally and vertically in the unsaturated zone and to determine the critical parameters that will affect the ecosystems. This part has been published in a peer review journal and presented in an international congress.The second part of the PhD. project has focused on the study of two natural analogues in volcanic areas. Natural analogues provide evidences of the impact of CO2 leakage, for both sites two approaches have been followed: a) direct measurement of air concentration and b) numerical atmospheric modelling with the TWODEE2 code. The study of CO2 emissions in natural systems provides a valuable information on the assessment and quantification of potential risks related to underground carbon storage leakage. Emissions of CO2 are studied in a large variety of geological environments, i.e., sedimentary basins, active andnon-active volcanic areas, seismically-active regions, and geothermal fields. Because of the physics of carbon dioxide gas, e.g., colourless, odourless, higher density compared to air, its accumulation may result hazardous and even lethal for life. The objective of atmospheric dispersion modelling is to predict how will move the plume, generated by a leakage in natural degassing systems and CCS sites.Results obtained from this doctorate provide:¿Coupling experimental and numerical data in order to test new methods and/or numerical codes;¿New elements to the knowledge of CO2 behaviours in the unsaturated zone as seen at PISCO2;¿New clues on non-invasive monitoring techniques for CCS sites and natural analogues;¿The usefulness of studying natural analogues;¿The usefulness of the SAP system, as a good method to evaluate high gas emissions from underground;¿The efficiency of atmospheric modelling as a valuable methodology in the risk assessment;¿The importance of risk assessment maps in active degassing areas;¿The need of production of forecasting maps to evaluate dangerous scenarios.¿Numerical models (multiphase transport and atmospheric gas dispersion) are proved to be useful tools to predict gas behaviour inthe vadose zone and in the near-grou

    Thesis abstract: This work discloses new insights into the formation and evolution of Mg -carbonates as well as carbonation processes of Mg-rich oxides and silicates with the aim of providing a safe and permanent anthropogenic CO2 storage, helping to tackle the worst effects of climate change. Carbonation reactions were carried in a purpose -built steam-mediated carbonation systemat temperature and pressure ranges between 50-205ºC and 1 to 10 bar, respectively.A hydrated amorphous Mg-carbonate was identified upon carbonation of Mg-rich silicates and oxides at 50ºC. Such material might have similar composition and thermal dehydration behavior as nesquehonite. Results from this thesis provided newinsights into the enigmatic and yet unconstrained transition of such phase to less hydrated phases. The evolution of Mg - carbonate phases is mainly controlled by the slow dehydration kinetics of Mg2+ rather than evolving to a thermodynamicallymore stable or structurally similar phase. Despite it has been predicted that such material could straightforward transform into magnesite, it is strongly argued that such transition is greatly inhibited due to preferential nucleation pathways to le ss hydrated Mg-carbonate phases. Phases within the group Mg5(CO3)4(OH)2·XH2O (11=X=4) allows a progressive dehydration whereas the MgCO3·nH2O (n=0) seemingly not. It is proposed that the transition between hydrated amorphousMg-carbonate to highly disordered dypingite-like phases could occur progressively as it dehydrates and crystallizes, forming dypingite-like phases.The progressive evolution of dypingite-like phases is controlled by the removal of molecular water, inducing cell -shrinkage as well as ordering the internal structure heterogeneity, resulting in a crystalline hydrated structure with the name ofhydromagnesite. This might explain the inconsistencies in the solubility and decomposition behavior data reported in the literature for such carbonate phases. No further dehydration is allowed within this group, entailing a significant kinetic barrier in order to allow the transition from hydromagnesite to magnesite.Results from this work shed light into the yet enigmatic evolution of Mg -carbonate phases. The understating of such processes is of paramount importance to accelerate the transition and/or dehydration kinetics among such phases andpossibly unlocking preferential nucleation pathways.Brucite carbonation was observed to occur at feasible conversion rates even under simulated flue gas conditions, highlighting the potential of mineral carbonation processes for direct combined CO2 capture and storage/utilization.Carbonation of Mg-rich silicates remained a challenging field under the studied conditions, even for activated serpentine, despite its partial high-reactivity attributed to the presence of a highly-reactive amorphous Mg-rich phase. It was also found the presence of a poorly-reactive Mg-rich amorphous phase (formed upon activation of lizardite) which remained seeminglyunreacted upon carbonation. Such observation might provide new insights into the yet unanswered low carbonation efficiencies for direct-carbonation of activated serpentine.Similar carbonation yields were observed for brucite-bearing serpentinized dunite when compared to activated lizardite.Strategically sourcing serpentinized rocks with higher brucite contents will potentially increase the carbonation potential of such materials. Coexisting lizardite and/or forsterite were also observed to be partially carbonated.Carbonation of enstatite and forsterite were also individually studied under conditions relevant to localized early Martian conditions. Enstatite dissolution was observed by the formation of a Si -rich passivating layer, where Si and Mg areheterogeneously distributed. Such observation is consistent with morphological changes within this layer, strongly suggesting an intergrowth of nucleating and growing Mg-carbonates with Si-rich phases.

    Thesis abstract: Water is undoubtedly the most essential resource of humanity. However. supplying the human population with clean water has been a major challenge for decades. Contaminants in wastewaters endanger water bodies and the treatment of these effluents represent a high energy demand. The development of efficient wastewater treatment technologies is thus becoming increasingly important. In the context of a circular and bio-based economy. microalgae biomass has shown its great potential to treat wastewater streams. while recovering sustainable bioproducts. However. although extensive research has been done in this field. there is still need for improvements and realistic information in order to implement these systems at large scale. This PhD thesis aims to contribute to this quest by performing holistic studies on microalgae systems for wastewater treatment combined with different strategies for biomass valorisation. The overall content of this PhD thesis is divided in two main parts. The first part consists in experimental studies combining wastewater treatment and resources recovery using microalgae-based systems. while the second part is dedicated to the environmental analyses. through Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). of the technologies and biomass valorisation techniques investigated in this thesis. The first part presents investigated a well-known microalgae system. high rate alga! pond (HRAP). in order to simplify its maintenance. reduce costs and the footprint. This study showed that removing the primary treatment preceding a HRAP did not significantly affect the wastewater treatment efficiency. Moreover. the co-digestion with primary sludge could significantly improve the methane yield and kinetics of microalgae mono-digestion (2382:58 ml CH4/g VS compared to 1892:25 ml CH4/g VS. Following. a second study investigated the cultivation of cyanobacteria-dominated biomass using centrate diluted in secondary effluent from the HRAP system at different ratios. Results showed that cyanobacteria dominance was stable in a mixed culture with effective treatment efficiency. In addition. biomass grown in these systems could be valorised through phycobiliproteins (up to 17 mg/g dry biomass) and biogas production (from 159 to 199 ml CH4/g VS). Lastly. a third study investigating unialgal cultivations for further phycobiliproteins recovery was carried out. Light intensity and growth medium composition were optimised. and conditions were then selected to cultivate these microalgae in food-industry wastewater. Efficient wastewater treatment and successful extraction of phycobiliproteins (up to 103 mg/g dry biomass) were achieved. The second part of this thesis presents an overview of the environmental aspects associated with the microalgae systems and biomass recoveries focused in the previous experimental studies. A first LCA showed that. considering the most significant impact categories, HRAP system implemented in warm climate region showed to be the most environmentally friendly alternative while the biofertiliser production showed to be the most economically feasible than biogas. The second LCA indicated that a system treating industrial wastewater has lower environmental impacts than a system treating urban wastewater in most of the environmental indicators considered. Moreover, using wastewater appeared to be more environmentally friendly than using standard growth medium to cultivate microalgae. In conclusion, the results obtained in this thesis suggested that microalgae systems seem to have a great potential to improve water quality and recover valuable resources from wastewater. Therefore. based on the results of this study and considering the increasing need for conceptual biorefineries, sustainable installations at full scale would be the next step towards a circular economy.

    Thesis abstract: The objective of this work was the improvement and control of wastewater treatment using constructed wetlands operated as Microbial Fuel Cells (CW-MFCs) and Microbial Electrolysis Cells (CW-MECs). For this purpose, eight meso-scale experimental systems were constructed. The first experiment investigated the use of CW-MFC as a bioindicator, showing that it could be used as a qualitative alarm tool for sudden COD increases. The following three experiments investigated the removal of conventional contaminants as well as organic micropollutants (OMPs) using duplicates of CW-MEC, closed-circuit CW-MFC, open-circuit CW-MFC and conventional CW-control. Results showed that CW-MEC and CW-MFC+ increased the removal of COD (7-13%) and ammonium (18-22%) when compared to the control systems. Regarding OMPs, carbamazepine, diclofenac and naproxen removal was increased by 10-17% in CW-MFC+ and CW-MEC when compared to the control, while ibuprofen removal was similar amongst treatments. Additionally, a microbial activity analysis showed that activity was 4-34% higher in CW-MFC+ as compared to CW-control, and a microbial community analysis indicated that anode and cathode communities in CW-MEC were significantly different tq other treatments, seemingly due to the effects of electrolysis. In CW-MFC+ only cathode communities were different. probably due to sampling issues at the anodes.

    Thesis abstract: Air pollution is known to cause detrimental health effects in cities and specially on the most vulnerable population. Having accessto reliable air pollutant concentration data at street-level in urban areas can be crucial to mitigate the problem. In this thesis astreet-scale air quality modelling system for the city of Barcelona (Spain) has been developed, evaluated and applied to animpact study. Aiming to produce more accurate air pollutant concentrations at street-level, we coupled a mesoscale air qualitymodelling system (CALIOPE) with an urban dispersion model (R-LINE). The developed modelling system, CALIOPE-Urban,incorporates novel methodologies to combine regional- to street-scale models.We faced two main methodological challenges in this thesis. First, the Gaussian dispersion model R-LINE was initially developedfor open roads while Barcelona is a very built-up city, where diverse geometrical patterns cohabit. In order to apply R-LINE overBarcelona its meteorology has been adapted to street canyons. Second, the mesoscale meteorology and chemistry outputs ofCALIOPE had to be adapted to drive pollutant dispersion and provide background concentrations to R-LINE, respectively. As aconsequence, we developed a new methodology to calculate background concentrations at roof-top level and a vertical mixingparametrization to combine them with street-level freshly emitted pollutants. The vertical mixing parametrization considers urbangeometry and atmospheric stability to calculate surface level background concentrations. In order to estimate turbulentparameters within a street canyon we built a new method to estimate local surface roughness specific for each street.In the first evaluation, we aimed to give a more accurate representation of NO2 spatio-temporal variability across Barcelona citywith CALIOPE-Urban than with the mesoscale system alone. The temporal variability has been evaluated using measurementsfrom five traffic sites and one urban background site for April-May 2013 and we have found that CALIOPE-Urban gives a betteragreement in traffic sites. The evaluation of the spatial variability has been carried out using 182 passive dosimeters that weredistributed across Barcelona during two weeks for February-March 2017. CALIOPE-Urban has also shown a more realisticdistribution than the mesoscale system.In the second evaluation, we have evaluated CALIOPE-Urban results using measurements of horizontal and vertical BCconcentration profiles from an experimental campaign from 2016 and 2017. At the horizontal profiles, we have found that themodel reproduces the profile shape well and a pronounced fall-off within the initial 5-10 m, which is steeper in the observations.The model has generally reproduced the homogeneity of the vertical observed profile well. We have identified that ourmethodology to estimate vertical mixing gives a better performance in street canyons than in open roads.In the application, CALIOPE-Urban at 20 m horizontal resolution has been used to study the impact of excess diesel light dutyvehicles (LDV) NOx emisson air quality in Barcelona city in comparison with CALIOPE at 4 km and 1 km resolutions. Resultshave shown that NOx traffic emissions in Barcelona city would decrease about a 30% if diesel LDV would comply with the EUlegal limits. As a consequence, NO2 concentrations at street-level would be reduced about about 14% using CALIOPE 4 km,17% using CALIOPE 1km, and 20% using CALIOPE-Urban.In summary, the works carried out in this thesis produced very valuable results for a better understanding of street-level airpollution dynamics in Barcelona city. The application of a street-scale model like CALIOPE-Urban provides better estimates ofthe impact of specific emission scenarios on the air quality of the city. The methodology of CALIOPE-Urban may be replicated forother cities in the future if the required input data is available.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
