Advanced Gas-Particle High Resolution Mass Spectrometer May Help Identify Aerosol Nanoparticles

Advanced Gas-Particle High Resolution Mass Spectrometer May Help Identify Aerosol Nanoparticles

Researchers may soon have a better idea of how tiny particles of pollution are formed in the atmosphere. These particles, called aerosols, or particulate matter (PM), are hazardous to human health and contribute to climate change, but researchers know little about how their properties are shaped by chemical reactions in the atmosphere. Unraveling this chemistry could someday lead to more effective policies to protect human health and the Earth’s climate. [More]
