  • Detection of Airborne Viruses in a Pediatrics Department Measured Using Real-Time qPCR Coupled to an Air-Sampling Filter Method

    Children are vulnerable to viral infections. The study discussed in this article investigates the possibility of aerosol transmission of viruses in children under age 18 in the pediatrics department of a medical center in Taipei, Taiwan. After first using the filtration method to collect viral aerosols, the authors combined it with real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) to detect ...

  • Monitoring Airborne Contaminants in Workplace Atmospheres, Using Sampling Devices and GC or HPLC

    Workers' exposure to hazardous substances must be held within acceptable limits. Therefore, airborne contaminant vapor and particles (including aerosols) in industrial atmospheres must be monitored. In the United States, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) offer, for many such substances, specific ...

  • Effects of cloud microphysical parameters on the global energy budget

    Cloud microphysical parameters, such as cloud droplet size (r), droplet number concentration (Nd) and liquid water content (LWC), play an important role in the energy budgets of clouds, and thus the climate of the earth's atmosphere. The observations were collected during the North Atlantic Regional Experiment (NARE) near Yarmouth, Nova Scotia between 5 August and 8 September 1993. Measurements ...
