  • NASA to Launch Global Warming Satellite After Loss

    Five years after a NASA satellite to track carbon dioxide plunged into the ocean after liftoff, the space agency is launching a carbon copy - this time on a different rocket. The $468 million mission is designed to study the main driver of climate change emitted from smokestacks and tailpipes. Some of the carbon dioxide is sucked up by trees and oceans, and the rest is lofted into the atmosphere, ...

  • Carbon Monoxide from South American Fires Blows to Australia

    UTRECHT, The Netherlands (ENS) - Much of the carbon monoxide hovering over Australia during wildfire season originated from South American wildfires some 13,000 kilometers (8,000 miles) away, scientists have determined, using satellite data. Knowledge about the global distribution of carbon monoxide is important because it affects air quality and climate. Using data from ...

  • ASTM D4691 - 11 standard practice for measuring elements in water by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry

    Elemental constituents in water and wastewater need to be identified to support effective water quality monitoring and  control programs. Currently, one of the most widely used and practical means for measuring concentrations of elements is by  atomic absorption spectrophotometry. The major advantage of atomic absorption over atomic emission is the almost total lack of spectral ...
