  • 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 ...

  • Air Monitors launches latest industrial particulate monitors

    A new report published in September 2012 by the European Environment Agency shows that almost a third of Europe's city dwellers are exposed to excessive concentrations of airborne particulate matter (PM); one of the most important pollutants in terms of harm to human health because it penetrates sensitive parts of the respiratory system. Colin Craggs from instrumentation specialist Air Monitors ...

  • Climate studies to benefit from 12 years of satellite aerosol data

    Aerosols, very small particles suspended in the air, play an important role in the global climate balance and in regulating climate change. They are one of the greatest sources of uncertainty in climate change models. ESA's GlobAerosol project has been making the most of European satellite capabilities to monitor them. Using data from the Along Track Scanning Radiometer-2 on the ERS-2 satellite, ...

  • 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 ...

  • ASTM D6552 - 06(2011) standard practice for controlling and characterizing errors in weighing collected aerosols

    The weighing of collected aerosol is one of the most common and purportedly simple analytical procedures in both occupational and environmental atmospheric monitoring (for example, Test Method D4532 or D4096). Problems with measurement accuracy occur when the amount of material collected is small, owing both to balance inaccuracy and variation in the weight of that part of the sampling medium ...
