  • Instrument Development for Atmospheric Research and Monitoring

    The growth in our understanding of the production, transformation and loss of pollutants and trace substances in the atmosphere has followed closely the development of instrumentation for both in situ and remote measurements of the minute concentrations and fluxes of trace substances. In recent times the requirement has been for instruments which ...

  • Monitoring Methods for Toxics in the Atmosphere

    Addresses some of the most important classes of air toxics, those that currently generate national and international concern regarding human and ecological hazards, namely volatile organic compounds; acid gases; and HCL and heavy metals from waste incineration. 16 papers that review developments and challenges in the areas of sampling, ...

  • Infrasound Monitoring for Atmospheric Studies

    The infrasound field, the science of low-frequency acoustic waves, has developed into a broad interdisciplinary field encompassing academic disciplines of physics and recent technical and scientific developments.In 1996, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), prohibiting atmospheric nuclear ...

  • Toxic Materials in the Atmosphere: Sampling and Analysis

    The contents are divided into four sections: Industrial Hygiene Sampling and Analysis; Continuous Air Monitors and Portable Instruments; Passive Monitoring Devices; Chemical Characterization and Analytical Methods. The intent of the 1981 Boulder Conference upon which this publication is based was to review all aspects of air sampling and analysis ...

  • Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere for Environmental Security

    Recent ecological disasters make human beings aware of changes in the Earth’s climate. At the present time anthropogenic activities lead to the emission of greenhouse gases, pollutants, aerosols and ozone depleting substances and the scientific community in general feels responsible for understanding how changes in atmospheric chemistry can affect ...

  • Calibration in Air Monitoring

    The Symposium on Calibration in Air Monitoring was presented at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Colo., 5-7 Aug., 1975. The symposium was sponsored by The American Society for Testing and Materials through its Committee D-22 on Methods of Sampling and Analysis of Atmospheres. R. L. Chapman, Beckman Instruments, Inc., presided as symposium ...

  • Monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Bant Treaty: Data Processing and Infrasound

    On September 10, 1996, The United Nations General Assembly adopted the Copmprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), prohibiting nuclear explosions worldwide, in all environments. The treaty calls for a global verification system, including a network of 321 monitoring stations distributed around the globe, a data communications network, an ...

  • Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy

    Ulrich Platt is awarded the Robert-Wichard-Pohl Prize 2010 for his valuable contribution to the application of DOAS to atmospheric spectroscopyMeasurement techniques form the basis of our knowledge about atmospheric composition and chemistry. Presently, important questions of atmospheric chemistry center on urban pollution, free-radical chemistry, ...

  • Bringing the Sun Down to Earth

    Bringing the Sun Down to Earth is intended for teachers, students, and anyone who wants to understand their environment. It provides a unique perspective to monitoring the role of the sun and Earth’s atmosphere in maintaining our planet as a place hospitable to advanced life as we understand it. The book first presents some science background ...

  • The Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE)

    The Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE) is a small, free-flying satellite carrying four scientific instruments to measure the solar radiation incident at the top of the Earth’s atmosphere. SORCE was successfully launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center on 25 January 2003. As one element of NASA’s Earth Science Enterprise, the SORCE ...

  • Laser Remote Sensing

    Information on recent progress in laser remote sensor (LIDAR) technology can be found scattered throughout numerous journal articles and conference proceedings, but until now there has been no work that summarizes recent advancements and achievements in the field in a detailed format.Laser Remote Sensing provides an up-to-date, comprehensive ...

  • Dayside and Polar Cap Aurora

    The auroral emissions in the upper atmosphere of the polar regions of the Earth are evidence of the capture of energetic particles from the Sun, streaming by the Earth as the solar wind. These auroral emissions, then, are a window to outer space, and can provide us with valuable information about electrodynamic coupling processes between the solar ...

  • The Forgotten Pollution

    The increasing pace of industrialization throughout the world has brought with it a serious and ever increasing threat from air pollution. It is true that this threat is being taken seriously, and that many responsible research workers, government advisors and others are working towards its reduction. But air pollution seems to have something ...

  • UV Radiation in Global Climate Change

    Numerous studies report that ultraviolet (UV) radiation is harmful to living organisms and detrimental to human health. Growing concerns regarding the increased levels of UV-B radiation that reach the earth's surface have led to the development of ground- and space-based measurement programs. Further study is needed on the measurement, modeling, ...

  • ISOCYANATES: Sampling, Analysis, and Health Effects

    STP 1408 examines the latest data and technology on isocyanates, and features topics ranging from sampling and analysis methods to health effects. Isocyanates are widely used in many industrial processes because of their high activity and affinity to many substances, which lead to polymerization, as well as the properties for the resulting ...
