  • Sample Handling Strategies for Accurate Lead-In-Soil Measurements in the Field and Laboratory

    ABSTRACT The inhomogenous lead-in-soil matrix can present serious obstacles to accurate sample collection and handling. In typical lead-in-soil measurement, particle size related errors in sampling and sample handling often exceed all other sources of error. The magnitude of error can vary widely depending on the particulate nature of the lead contaminant and the effectiveness of control ...

  • NIOSH Announces Sampling Strategy to Help Identify Potential Nanomaterial Exposure in an Occupational Setting

    On November 1, 2016, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) published a blog item entitled “Never fear!  NEAT 2.0 is here! — How to perform nanomaterial exposure assessment in the workplace.”  NIOSH notes that in 2009, it developed and was the first to recommend using the nanoparticle ...

  • Leaves of Lolium multiflorum as indicators of airborne trace element distribution in Central Italy

    Ambient air contains particles, ranging from sub-micrometric aerosols to clearly visible dust and sand grains. Plants during evolution developed the ability to maximise light interception and CO2 assimilation and also the efficiency to collect the airborne pollutants. Therefore, plant tissues have been used as indicators of trace elements air pollution. Lolium multiflorum leaves were used as a ...

  • Estimated occupational risk from Bioaerosols generated during land application of class B biosolids

    Some speculate that bioaerosols from land application of biosolids pose occupational risks, but few studies have assessed aerosolization of microorganisms from biosolids or estimated occupational risks of infection. This study investigated levels of microorganisms in air immediately downwind of land application operations and estimated occupational risks from aerosolized microorganisms. In all, ...

  • Short-term variations in ambient particulates and their sources in Taichung, Taiwan

    Ambient particulate measurements were carried out using TE-PUF sampling and a Universal Air Sampler between 8 March and 25 April 2001 at Taichung. Samples were collected every 6 hours beginning at 0100 LST (Local Standard Time) each day at two sites, one at a university campus and the other at a roadside. Chemical species (Cl-, NO3-, ...
