  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Why monitor dust in the workplace?

    Almost any place of employment can present a potential threat to health and safety from airborne particulates and aerosols. It is important to note, however, that dust hazards are not necessarily visible to the human eye and that the finest particles can represent the greatest threat because of their ability to travel deepest into the lungs. Effective monitoring is therefore key to the ...

  • Silver Membranes in Monitoring Respirable Crystalline Silica

    Crystalline silica, most commonly found in the form of quartz, is a basic component of the earth; it’s found in soil, sand granite, and other minerals. During many industrial processes, crystalline silica is released as particles that are 100 times smaller than beach sand.1 Due to their size, these mineral particles cannot easily be cleared by human lungs. Instead, they persist in the ...
