  • Micro Pulse LiDAR: A Critical Tool for Emissions Source Detection

    Micro Pulse LiDAR remote sensing data are used to calculate a highly accurate Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL) height to improve plume models that help assess emissions sources. Poor air quality is a growing health issue that has a negative impact on the quality of life for millions of people. To help alleviate this serious problem, scientists at Bubbleology Research International (BRI) have ...

  • Researchers are Advancing Science Using Micro Pulse LiDAR Technology

    There are so many examples of interesting research using Micro Pulse LiDAR (MPL) technology it is difficult to decide on my favorites; however, I have chosen to highlight the following two papers because these applications for the MPL and MiniMPL address problems that are very important to global health. I’ve created a summary of each report and provided the citation in case you are ...

  • Micro Pulse Lidar: Perfect Tool for Atmospheric Research

    Micro pulse style lidars are active remote sensing tools proven to be highly useful in atmospheric research. This style of backscatter lidar has been around for decades; however, incremental improvements in photon counting, sensitivity, polarization, optical filters, coatings, and precision machining of each element support increasingly accurate analysis. Each iteration of the ...

  • Cleaner EnzymeCleaner Enzyme

    Enzymes in cleaner contains hydrolase such as protease, lipase and diastase, which can decompose protein, carbohydrate and lipids into the constituent having relative small formula weight like peptide segments, delspray and oligosaccharide so that the solubility and suspending power of aqueous solution are stronger, improving the cleaning effect. Enzymes in cleaner is applicable to decompose the ...

  • What is the best way to do trace metal sampling?

    All samplers contaminate or distort in some way. • Plastics may leach metals from ultraviolet inhibitors, metal-organic plasticizers, (rarely) metal catalysts. • Teflon has a rough porous surface into which ions, fine charged particles, and very fine particles may become attached. Errors may occur in your first sample due to these trapped trace elements. • ...

  • What are Core Samplers?

    A core, in marine research, is a cylindrical section taken from sediments underlying a water body. Core samplers, the instruments used to obtain cores, range from the simple to the complex. The variety of corer types reflect the breadth and variety of marine research. For example, the simplest corers are hand-operated types used in shallow waters to collect sediment cores containing fauna. ...

  • Detergents And Cleaning

    Alkaline lipase: Alkaline lipase is a new enzyme in detergent industry. Its main use is as new enzymes used in detergent industry. Its special properties decompose the clothing oil into diglyceride, monoglyceride and fatty acid and other water-soluble substances, which significantly improve the washing effect of washing powder, especially the effect of removing the macula. We use a variety ...
