Using an open-path FTIR for real-time detection of toxic gases and aerosols in the outdoor environments

In this study we investigate the use of OP-FTIR for detection of an aerosol cloud, both in active OP-FTIR mode (in which case a powerful radiation source and a reflector are used) and in passive OP-FTIR mode (which relies on the background radiation and does not require neither a radiation source nor a reflector).

Primary and secondary pesticide drift under sub-humid climate; field measurements and modeling approaches

Using a novel laboratory apparatus, in which both condensed and gaseous phases are monitored simultaneously, we determine the kinetics and quantum yields of photo-oxidation of sorbed pesticides, as well as identify their volatile and non-volatile products.
