Aerodyne attended AGU 2018 from December 10-14. It was the first Fall Meeting held in Washington, D.C. It was focused on ethics, diversity and inclusion and exploration of the many dimensions of science’s impact on society.
Aerodyne attended the AGU JING 2018 meeting about atmospheric PM2.5 on October 16-20, 2018 in Xi'an, China. The meeting consisted of a series of plenary sessions, regular sessions, and poster sessions. The objective of the meeting was to advance the state of sciences on PM2.5 as well as increase public awareness and knowledge about its diverse applications to important societal issues on the environment, health, energy, materials and other facets of our life.
This video is the first in a series produced by Eben Cross helping the general public develop their Air Intuition and learn how to avoid air pollution in their day-to-day life. - Support provided by the AAAR strategic fund.
Aerodyne attended FLAIR 2018 - Field Laser Applications in Industry and Research conference September 10-14, 2018 in Assisi, Italy.
Aerodyne Research will attend the10th International Aerosol Conference (IAC 2018) to be held September 2-7, 2018 at the America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri. Come visit us at booth 19!
Aerodyne attended Goldschmidt 2018. Goldschmidt is the foremost annual, international conference on geochemistry and related subjects, organized by the Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry. The Exhibition was open Monday 13th to Thursday 16th August from 10.00 – 19.30, and on Friday 17th August between 10:00 - 14:00 in the John B. Hynes Veterans Memorial Convention Center in Boston.
Aerodyne Research published a research article: Methane emissions in the Netherlands: The Groningen field in research journal Elementa.
Olin students and East Boston residents are working together to measure air quality in the area by Logan Airport. The effort is underway thanks to a low cost sensor developed by Aerodyne Research, Inc.

Mass concentrations calculated from Aerodyne's aerosol mass spectrometers depend on particle collection efficiency (CE) and relative ionization efficiency (RIE, relative to the primary calibrant ammonium nitrate). We present new laboratory RIE measurements for a wide range of organic aerosol species (RIEOA), with an average RIEOA = 1.6 ± 0.5 that is consistent with most ambient OA except for hydrocarbon-like organic aerosol (HOA) and cooking organic aerosol (COA) where RIEOA = 2 to 7 were obtained.
Comprehensive analysis of breath demands a detector that can simultaneously monitor compounds at concentrations ranging from ppt to ppm levels. The Vocus PTR-TOF did just that when our application scientist ate a cough drop in front of its inlet. View full article here: https://www.tofwerk.com/monitoring-human-breath-emissions-vocs-ptr-ms/
Aerodyne Research attended the EGU General Assembly 2018 from April 8th through April 13th. EGU brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.
The CAEC group (Center for Atmospheric and Environmental Chemistry) has just returned from a field mission measuring methane emissions from offshore oil and gas platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.
