  • Soil Particle Size Distribution

    Particle size distribution, also known as gradation, refers to the proportions by dry mass of a soil distributed over specified particle-size ranges. Gradation is used to classify soils for engineering and agricultural purposes, since particle size influences how fast or slow water or other fluid moves through a soil. Two proposed new ASTM standards provide test methods for determining particle ...

  • `Not all particles are equal`, Air Monitors

    Recently, the Prime Minister’s car was covered by a thin layer of Saharan dust and air quality was suddenly a lead item in the national news. The dust itself does not pose a serious hazard to health in comparison with the finer particles (from diesel engines for example) that travel deep into the lungs, but Jim Mills, MD of Air Monitors, believes that the media attention that this event ...

  • Track soil particles moving through watershed

    Soil erosion of croplands, rangelands, and urban areas is one of the most common problems that negatively affects the environment. Soil particles carried by rainwater along slopes may transport a variety of harmful agricultural and industrial chemicals, cause the soil to lose fertility, and inundate streams. Quantifying the movement of soil through watersheds is a complex task, which requires ...

  • New method for detecting microplastic particles in fish stomachs

    A novel approach for identifying and isolating anthropogenic – including microplastic – particles in fish stomachs has been devised by researchers in Belgium. The new method may enable scientists and policymakers to better assess the presence, quantity and composition of particles ingested by marine life, and improve understanding of the environmental effects of marine plastic ...

  • Californians dying prematurely from particles in vehicle exhaust

    Every year, up to 24,000 Californians die prematurely because they breathe fine particle pollution over a long period of time, according to research presented this week to the California Air Resources Board. A majority of these deaths occur in highly populated areas around the state, including the South Coast, the San Joaquin Valley and the San Francisco Bay air basins.  All combustion ...
