  • Climate models may be overestimating the cooling effect of wildfire aerosols

    Original story at MIT News Whether intentionally set to consume agricultural waste or naturally ignited in forests or peatlands, open-burning fires impact the global climate system in two ways which, to some extent, cancel each other out. On one hand, they generate a significant fraction of ...

  • 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 ...

  • Identifying Particulate Matter Pollution Hazards in Businesses and Institutions throughout Puerto Rico

    There are many industries across Puerto Rico and the Caribbean that expose workers to elevated levels of particulate matter, also known as PM. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) describes particulate matter as a mixture of solid particles and liquid droplets found in the air. Some particles, such as dust, dirt, soot or smoke, are large or dark enough to be seen with the naked eye. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Outpacing climate change with atmospheric research collaboration

    Tiny particles in air called aerosols create smog, seed clouds, and control how much of the sun's heat makes it through the atmosphere. And yet these particles are the least understood aspect of climate research. Now, two research institutions are working together to tackle the role of aerosols in climate change -- specifically how aerosols from pollution, oceans and wildfires contribute to ...

  • Air quality specialist calls for black carbon standard

    Traditionally, ambient particulates have been measured gravimetrically according to their size. However, Jim Mills, Managing Director of Air Monitors, believes that the time has come to change or at least augment the way ambient particulates are monitored and regulated. Black Carbon (BC) is a term describing the fine particles that are produced as the result of incomplete combustion of fuels and ...
