What is something we can do to fight against COVID-19 and improve indoor air quality for human health? Portable high efficiency particle air (HEPA) cleaners and masking can significantly reduce exposure to SARS-CoV-2 aerosol particles. Continue reading Portable HEPA Cleaners and Masking can Reduce Exposure to SARS-CoV-2 Aerosols
Climate models have long been reliant on information from cloud interactions with ship exhaust; however, new research shows this may not tell the whole story Continue reading Overestimating Cloud Cooling: How Ship Tracks May Incorrectly Inform Climate Models
Researchers recently determined that while potentially health-damaging aerosols are relatively evenly distributed throughout Switzerland and Liechtenstein, some potentially dangerous compounds in the aerosols tend to cluster near cities. Continue reading Chemical Composition of Air Pollution Particles Varies in Cities
Because of food allergies, we need a fast way to test for allergens and contaminants in over 33 million kg/day of protein are available in North America. Aerosol-printed graphene sensors may be the way. Continue reading Fast food allergen sensors with aerosol-printed graphene
by Colleen Golja figures by Brad Wierbowski Articles with dystopian titles like “Is it OK to Tinker With the Environment to Combat Climate Change?” and “To Curb Global Warming Science Fiction May Become Fact” have begun to surface regularly in prominent news sources like The New York Times, The Guardian, NPR, The Economist, and many others. Just this past October, a cinematic portrayal of a climate-modified … Continue reading Solar Geoengineering: Is controlling our climate possible?
