  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Australian bushfires cloud air pollution problem, monitoring shows

    In a presentation to the GREENHOUSE 2009 conference in Perth this week, CSIRO’s Dr Mick Meyer said measurements taken at the Bayside Air Quality Station in Melbourne’s south-east during the 2003 and 2006 bushfires provided a guide to what could be experienced as the climate changes. “While air quality standards generally appear to be improving, a future issue will be quality during times of ...

  • Tracking down the menace in Mexico City smog

    A new report by scientists who are part of the international MILAGRO Campaign indicates that some of the most harmful air pollution in Mexico City may not come from motor vehicles but instead originates with industrial sources – and that the culprit may be garbage incineration. The MILAGRO Campaign (Megacity Initiative: Local and Global Research Observations) monitored air quality in the Mexico ...
