  • Micro Pulse LiDAR measures aerosols caused by biomass burning - Case Study

    From June to October, the burning of agricultural fields in southern Africa creates smoke that blows west across the southeastern Atlantic Ocean and reaches Brazil, over 4,500 miles away. Using Micro Pulse LiDAR (MPL) and other instruments, researchers at the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility on the remote island of Ascension, operated by the U.S. Department of Energy, ...

  • Micro Pulse LiDAR: A Critical Tool for Emissions Source Detection

    Micro Pulse LiDAR remote sensing data are used to calculate a highly accurate Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) height to improve plume models that help assess emissions sources. ...

  • What is the best way to do trace metal sampling?

    All samplers contaminate or distort in some way. • Plastics may leach metals from ultraviolet inhibitors, metal-organic plasticizers, (rarely) metal catalysts. • Teflon has a rough porous surface into which ions, fine charged particles, and very fine particles may become attached. Errors may occur in your first sample due to these trapped trace elements. • ...
