Frontiers in Energy Research

Black and brown carbon: Small particles with big issues

25 April 2017 | Seminar

Frontiers in Energy Research is a series of lectures given by PhD students of their energy-related research work. Anyone can attend. No registration is required.

Carbonaceous aerosols, including black and brown carbon nanoparticles, are emitted from incomplete combustion processes (power generation, transportation, biomass burning, etc.) and have a large impact on air quality, climate change and human health. This presentation mainly focuses on their optical properties relating to climate effect, and the measurement techniques from laboratory and ambient experiments.
