OFF GRID BLACK CARBON MONITORING

Carbonaceous aerosols are particulate matter ( produced by the incomplete combustion of fuels. Black Carbon (BC) is typically produced by high temperature combustion such as engine exhaust and industrial processes. Brown Carbon (BrC) is typically produced by lower temperature biomass combustion such as domestic cooking and heating stoves, forest fires, agricultural waste burning etc. Both …

STUDIES OF AEROSOL CARBONACEOUS MATTER

This Application Note describes the combination of the Carbonaceous Aerosol Speciation System (CASS) and an Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor (ACSM). The ACSM is used for real-time monitoring of non-refractory aerosol particle mass and chemical composition.  It reports particulate ammonium, nitrate, sulfate, chloride, and other organic species as “organic matter” (OM).  The ACSM is one component …

BLACK CARBON CAR EMISSION FACTORS

Motivation One of the main sources of air pollution is traffic. To estimate the traffic contribution to air pollution the emissions are calculated from the vehicle fleet composition and vehicle emission factors (EF). Since the emission factors depend on vehicle type (cars, heavy and light duty), engine maintenance, driving environment (city, highway, regional roads) and …
