Comparison of a traffic emissions model with measurements in a European city

Dr. Irena Ježek of the Aerosol R&D team just published a scientific paper in the prestigious journal Atmospheric Environment titled: “The traffic emission-dispersion model for a Central-European city agrees with measured black carbon apportioned to traffic”. This scientific paper presents a simple methodology for modeling traffic emissions using real world emission factors. Using real-world emission …

A new method for determination of relative contribution of aerosol sources to the oxidative potential of PM

Exposure to combustion-derived air pollution aerosols has been shown to have many adverse effects on human health, including the impact of cellular oxidative stress. In this toxicological study we developed a new method to assess the contribution of different sources of ambient aerosols to the oxidative potential (OP) of particulate mass (PM), using a long …

Heating Rate of Light Absorbing Aerosols

Scientific paper published in Environmental Science & Technology journal presents a novel methodology for experimental quantification of heating rate induced by light absorbing aerosols (LAA) (Black Crabon – BC and Brown Carbon – BrC) into an atmospheric layer. Multiwavelength aerosol absorption measurements, performed by the Aethalometer, were coupled with spectral measurements of the direct, diffuse …
