  • What is the Difference between a gas analyser and a gas monitor?

    Technically, there does not have to be any difference at all. However, semantically, “analysis” might suggest something more scientific with higher precision and better performance than a simple “monitor” which possibly suggests a more indicative output where precision is of less importance. With that said, the two words “analyser” and “monitor” are ...

  • The Ultimate Way To Stop Global Warming

    The Earth's surface temperature has risen by about 1 degree Fahrenheit in the past century, with accelerated warming during the past two decades. There is new and stronger evidence that most of the warmth over the last 50 years is attributable to human activities. Human activities have altered the chemical composition of the atmosphere through the buildup of greenhouse gases – primarily ...

  • Marine Monitoring of Emissions of Air Pollutants

    Many of us who are not in the marine shipping business probably think of vessels as practical means of transportation, or, when it comes to cruising ships, a place to spend your vacation. However, not all of us realize that large ships also are floating large power plants, with all aspects that come with power plants including potential contribution to air pollution. ...

  • Field evaluation of a near–real time elemental monitor and identification of element sources observed at an air monitoring supersite in Korea

    Abstract Ambient measurements of elemental species concentrations were made using an online elemental monitor at an air pollution monitoring station in Gwangju, Korea to evaluate the performance of the monitor for near–real time PM2.5 elemental monitoring and identify possible sources of the observed elements. This study also demonstrates the utility of integrating hourly ...

  • Measurement of trace metals in ambient air: Validation of a rapid technique with gold standard ICP-AES

    Trace metals are found at low concentration in the ambient environment and are associated with adverse health effects. The gold standard metal measurement is Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES); however, sample preparation is laborious and expensive. The Xact 625 metals monitor uses non-destructive X-ray fluorescence technology. A built-in sample collection ...

  • Sahara Dust pollutes Southern Greece – this is how Lufft Ceilometers can help

    Information related to the range resolved aerosol-cloud physical properties appears to be mandatory for our better understanding of the atmospheric dynamics, air quality and climate change. Recently, the Southern part of Greece  suffered from a severe Saharan Dust outbreak. The dust had been driven across the Mediterranean due to strong south winds. The island of Crete was mostly affected by ...

  • Ground Temperature Monitoring - HAARP Research Station - Case Study

    The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is a research program designed to study the properties and behavior of the ionosphere. The program, which is jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, operates the HAARP Research Station, a world-class facility 180 miles ENE of Anchorage and ...

  • Now is the Time to Fix Your Data Center Hot Spots!

    Are you puzzled by the hot spots in your data center?  In most data centers, like the one depicted in the chart below, cooling resources are overabundant but airflow is insufficiently distributed for rack-level cooling – which results in hot spots. In situations like these, we recommend the ...
