  • 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 ...

  • The many faces of fire hazards in industrial settings

    Fire and explosion accidents are of major concern to the owners and operators of refineries and petrochemical, gas processing, terminal, and offshore facilities. Statistics have shown that the majority of monetary loss in these types of complexes is due to fire and explosion. According to statistics, 77 percent of the monetary loss in refinery and petrochemical complexes is due to fire and ...

  • 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. ...

  • Climate research targets Western wildfire smoke

    Researchers are flying over Western wildfires to sample the thick smoke they emit and study its role in cloud formation and climate. The data-gathering campaign is intended to help scientists flesh out one of the least understood areas of climate: the role of aerosols, or particles given off by wildfires, and how they evolve over time. Biomass burning, such as forest fires and agricultural fires ...

  • Tracking down the menace in Mexico City smog

    A new report by scientists who are part of the international MILAGRO Campaign indicates that some of the most harmful air pollution in Mexico City may not come from motor vehicles but instead originates with industrial sources – and that the culprit may be garbage incineration. The MILAGRO Campaign (Megacity Initiative: Local and Global Research Observations) monitored air quality in the Mexico ...

  • 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 ...

  • Tackling the global clean air challenge

    In many cities air pollution is reaching levels that threaten people's health according to an unprecedented compilation of air quality data released today by WHO. The information includes data from nearly 1100 cities across 91 countries, including capital cities and cities with more than 100 000 residents. Compared to 90 other countries, Canada tied for third with Australia following ...
