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 …

MARINE VESSEL BLACK CARBON POLLUTION

Motivation The duration of use is usually significantly longer for marine vessels than for roadside vehicles. Therefore, these vessels are often powered by relatively old engines, which may propagate air pollution. Also, the quality of fuel used for marine vessels is usually not comparable to the quality of fuels used in the automotive sector. Therefore, …

GLOBAL BLACK CARBON POLLUTION

Motivation Black carbon (BC) has a unique and important role in the Earth’s climate system because it absorbs solar radiation, influences cloud processes, and alters snow and ice cover melting. BC is the second-largest climate warmer, after carbon dioxide. A large fraction of atmospheric black carbon concentrations is due to anthropogenic activities. Concentrations respond quickly …
