  • New Swiss device to monitor carbon dioxide

    A new laser device installed on the Jungfraujoch in Switzerland will help scientists determine the source of carbon dioxide, a major greenhouse gas, on a real-time basis. Until now climatologists tracking carbon dioxide levels in high alpine regions have had to rely on individual samples painstakingly gathered and tested in distance laboratories. The site already hosts a pollution-monitoring ...

  • Underground monitoring of carbon storage site begins in Mississippi

    A team from the US Department of Energy's (DOE) Southeast Regional Carbon Sequestration Partnership (SECARB) is using scientific instrumentation, installed nearly two miles beneath the surface of the earth, to track the movement of carbon dioxide (CO2) being injected for oil recovery. This research effort will provide valuable insight into both the requirements of the instrumentation necessary to ...

  • Monitoring Total Carbon for straightforward management of runoff from de-icing episodes at airports

    During winter operations vast areas of airport runways, taxiways, and aprons are cleared of ice and snow using acetate type chemicals and airplane wings are de-iced with glycol based antifreeze. During these seasonal de-icing episodes the runoff water suddenly becomes heavily contaminated with organics and needs to be diverted to a treatment/recovery plant or holding ponds. Total Carbon (TC) is ...
