  • Can rain clean the atmosphere?

    Original story at MIT News As a raindrop falls through the atmosphere, it can attract tens to hundreds of tiny aerosol particles to its surface before hitting the ground. The process by which droplets and aerosols attract is coagulation, a natural phenomenon that can act to clear the air of pollutants like soot, sulfates, ...

  • 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 ...

  • NASA launches airborne study of Arctic atmosphere, air pollution

    The recent decline of Arctic sea ice is one indication that this region is undergoing significant environmental changes related to climate warming. To investigate the atmosphere's role in this climate-sensitive region, NASA and its partners have begun the most extensive field campaign ever to study the chemistry of the Arctic's lower atmosphere. The Arctic Research of the Composition of the ...

  • Lumex Instruments Takes Part in Making Mercury History

    Minamata disease is one of the most notorious ecological catastrophes of the 20th century. Discharge of mercury-containing effluent by the "Chisso" chemical plant to the Minamata Bay in Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan, gave rise to a dangerous syndrome that seriously affects the central nervous system due to the toxicity of methylmercury, which gets into the body with contaminated food. In ...

  • ASTM B810 - 01a(2011) standard test method for calibration of atmospheric corrosion test chambers by change in mass of copper coupons

    Electrical devices that contain electrical contacts generally contain some copper-based materials. Atmospheric corrosion of copper parts in such devices often occurs in service environments. A quantitative measure of the effect of a laboratory corrosion test on copper permits assessment of the severity of the test. In addition, corrosion tests may be defined in terms of their effect on copper; ...

  • Edinburgh Instruments’ Spectrometers help developing infrared lasers

    Research in optical materials is rapidly moving towards stable, high-power laser sources emitting in the mid-infrared (mid-IR) region. Despite their promising applications, there are currently not many commercially available lasers for this range of wavelengths (2 μm ‒ 8 μm). One of their main applications is in absorption spectroscopy for the detection of trace gases and atmospheric ...

  • Atmosphere northern hemisphere has lower self-cleaning capacity than previously thought

    Pollution is being removed more slowly from the atmosphere in the northern hemisphere than previously assumed. An international research team that includes researchers from Wageningen University established that the atmospheric cleaning agent hydroxyl (OH) is found in the same concentrations in the southern and the northern hemisphere. Until now, scientists had assumed that there would be more OH ...
