  • Straightforward determination of anhydrosugars in aerosols

    Metrohm presents a new method for the sensitive and robust routine determination of the «smoke markers» levoglucosan, mannosan and galactosan in aerosols. The method couples ion chromatography with a highly sensitive pulsed amperometric detector (IC-PAD) and provides a simple and less expensive alternative to GC/MS. As such, it facilitates research into the effects of biomass burning aerosols on ...

  • Aerosols – their part in our rainfall

    “We have identified that the extensive pollution haze emanating from Asia may be re-shaping rainfall patterns in northern Australia but we wonder what impact natural and human-generated aerosols are having across the rest of the country,” Dr Rotstayn said. Aerosols are fine particles suspended in the atmosphere. Sources of human-generated aerosols include industry, motor vehicles and vegetation ...

  • Atmospheric aerosol climate caution

    Carbon dioxide is not the only problem we must address if we are to understand and solve the problem of climate change. According to research published this month in the International Journal of Global Warming, we as yet do not understand adequately the role played by aerosols, clouds and their interaction and must take related processes into account before considering any large-scale ...

  • Scientists reject aerosol geoengineering

    Geoengineering schemes that could help some countries deal with global warming could have the opposite effect in others, according to a study. Geoengineering refers to large-scale interventions, such as capturing greenhouse gases, aimed at tackling global warming. Some climate scientists have suggested adding aerosols to the atmosphere to deflect the sun's rays in what they call 'solar radiation ...

  • Practical Aerosol Science - A short course in aerosol theory and measurement

    A 3-day course in practical aerosol science is being run between 8th and 10th June, at the University of Manchester. The course aims to deliver an introductory understanding of the challenges faced with aerosol measurements. Sampling ambient particles can be extremely challenging and answering a simple question like 'how big is the particle' depends on what instrument was used to ...

  • New Aerosol Sensor from Kanomax

    We will be introducing an aerosol monitor that can be integrated into existing Ethernet networks. This monitor has a color-coded display that makes it easy to read at a glance. It can also be configured to alert the user remotely if the particles exceed a custom-set threshold. This instrument is ideal for high-traffic areas such as the gowning area before an actual cleanroom. The included PC ...

  • Aerosol can disposal - what is required?

    During management system audits or compliance audits the management of aerosol cans is one issue that is seldom management consistently. The disposal of aerosol cans depends on the condition of the can and the hazardous waste generator status of the site.  The condition of the can can be: Empty Partially Empty An empty aerosol can is one where the contends of ...

  • New Aerosols Monitor in high demand around the world

    Following excellent reviews from universities and research facilities worldwide the new Aurora 1000 & 3000 are hailed to be “The most user friendly Nephelometers on the market.” - Laboratoire de Météorologie Physique, Clermont-Ferrand, France. Monitoring aerosols is now of growing interest especially as current research has proven that fine particulates are linked to adverse health effects. ...

  • Dust Dominates Foreign Aerosol Imports To North America

    NASA and university scientists have made the first measurement-based estimate of the amount and composition of tiny airborne particles that arrive in the air over North America each year. With a 3-D view of the atmosphere now possible from satellites, the scientists calculated that dust, not pollution, is the main ingredient of ...

  • Rainfall can release aerosols, study finds

    Original story at MIT News Ever notice an earthy smell in the air after a light rain? Now scientists at MIT believe they may have identified the mechanism that releases this aroma, as well as other aerosols, into the environment. Using high-speed cameras, the researchers observed that when a raindrop hits a porous ...

  • Experts to study aerosols’ impact on Australia’s climate

    The impact that human-generated and natural atmospheric particles (aerosols) could be having on Australia’s climate will be discussed next week in Canberra at a workshop involving some of the world’s leading experts in the area. CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research scientist, Dr Leon Rotstayn, says the influence aerosols have on climate is still one of the ‘great unknowns’ in climate science. ...

  • Monitoring how aerosols affect climate change

    Monitoring aerosols is of growing interest especially as current research has indicated that fine particulates are linked to not only adverse health effects but also climate change. It has been known for some time that fine particulate matter (PM2.5) has been widely linked to adverse health effects such as asthma. Approximately 70% of particulate mass generated by, for example, bush fires is less ...

  • TSI Introduces New AEROTRAK™ 9000 - Nanoparticle Aerosol Monitor

    The AEROTRAK 9000 is an industrial hygiene tool for measuring a new metric for nanoparticle aerosol exposure – lung deposited surface area. Surface area is the measurement metric that research has shown to be highly correlated with exposure and dosing of nanoparticle aerosols. It provides a simple and fast solution for indicating the surface area equivalent dose of particles in the size range of ...
