Association persists at levels of exposure below current European limits Long term exposure to particulate matter in outdoor air is strongly linked to heart attacks and angina, and this association persists at levels of exposure below the current European limits, suggests research conducted at the Department of Epidemiology in Rome, Italy and published on bmj.com today. The results support lowering of the EU limits for particulate matter air pollution. Ambient particulate matter air...

Wildfires Change Climate Models

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While raging wildfires can consume property and even lives, the towering infernos could also be heavily influencing the forces of climate change. According to a new study from researchers at Michigan Technological University, forest fires emit massive quantities of two different kinds of particles – soot and tar balls. These particles remain in the atmosphere and should be taken into account when creating climate change models, the...

Burning candles is something that everyone loves to do, but some industry specialists say that burning candles can pollute the air just as much as cigarettes or gasoline. One Clean Planet is taking this problem head on with its new all natural soy candles. Santa Monica, California (PRWEB) January 12, 2013 The average candle found in your local store can contain up to 11 carcinogenic compounds. And sometimes these 11 compounds can be toxic air contaminants. As One Clean Planet strives to...

First field study finds soot particles absorb significantly less sunlight than predicted by models Viewed as a potential target in the global effort to reduce climate change, atmospheric black carbon particles absorb significantly less sunlight than scientists predicted, raising new questions about the impact of black carbon on atmospheric warming, an international team of researchers, including climate chemists from Boston College, report today in the latest edition of the journal...

Airborne Particulates Investigated
2012-06-27 13:37:38

For the first time, Lawrence Livermore researchers and international collaborators have peered into the makeup of complex airborne particulate matter so small that it can be transported into human lungs -- usually without a trace. The structure of micron-size particulate matter is important in a wide range of fields from toxicology to climate science (tobacco smoke and oil smoke particles are typically one micron in size). However, its properties are surprisingly difficult to measure in...

Soot Particles Measured In Flight

"For the first time we can actually see the structure of individual aerosol particles floating in air, their 'native habitat'," said DESY scientist Henry Chapman from the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg. "This will have important implications for various fields from climate modelling to human health." CFEL is a joint venture of Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY, the German Max Planck Society and the University of Hamburg. Aerosol particles like soot play...

Laser probes microscopic components of air pollution Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have captured the most detailed images to date of airborne soot particles, a key contributor to global warming and a health hazard. The discovery reveals the particles' surprisingly complex nanostructures and could ultimately aid the understanding of atmospheric processes important to climate change, as well as the design of cleaner combustion...
