HAPPY, HEALTHY, PEACEFUL NEW YEAR!

  Fireworks are illegal in Honolulu but private households blow tons of fireworks to welcome in the New Year for good luck.  This is an Asian tradition brought to the islands.

Waking Up to Carbon Monitoring.....

                                        The Met One Instruments, Inc. BC-1054 MultiSpectrum Carbon Monitor and BC-1060 Portable Carbon Monitor provide reliable, accurate, and highly sensitive black carbon "BC" and brown carbon "BrC" measurements in real time with standard time resolution of one minute. Built in the United States and serviced by our distributors worldwide the BC-1054 and the BC-1060 are manufactured using the same design principles as our criteria-grade particulate monitors such as the BAM-1020 Beta Attenuation Mass Monitor. All tape-based BC monitors including the BC-1054 and BC-1060, employ the same basic principle of operation and generally utilize the same academically based calibration factors thereby producing virtually identical results. The BC-1054 and BC-1060 however cost a fraction of what other tape-based carbon monitors cost. And.. in a simpler, more reliable, user-friendly package.  The BC-1054 employs 10 illumination wavelengths and is

Credit: University of Central Florida The instrument platform of the 305-meter telescope at Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico fell at approximately 7:55 a.m. Atlantic Standard Time on December 1, resulting in damage to the dish and surrounding facilities. No injuries were reported as a result of the collapse. The U.S. National Science Foundation ordered the area around the telescope to be cleared of unauthorized personnel since the  failure of a cable on November 6 . Local authorities will keep the area cordoned off as engineers work to assess the stability of the observatory’s other structures. Top priorities are maintaining safety at the site, conducting a complete damage assessment as quickl

Met One Instruments HH Particle Counter vs. Paper Towels !

Are Paper Towel Masks Effective at Blocking Viruses? 2020-03-08 Paddy Robertson Coronavirus Masks Paper towel test at capturing virus-sized particles In a recent study, researchers tested household materials that could be used to make DIY masks, but they left out one common material—paper towel masks (also called “kitchen paper”). Could paper towel be an effective material for making homemade masks in times of crisis and shortages? Smart Air Engineer Paddy tested its effectiveness in the Beijing lab. DIY mask test of paper towel effectiveness Putting Paper Towel Masks to The Test Paddy used a Met One GT-521S particle counter to test how well a single and double layer of paper towel filtered out particles down to 0.3 microns. Paddy ran the Met One for one minute, measuring the total number of particles passing through the kitchen paper versus the same setup with no filter.

The Met One Instruments BAM 1020 monitors are installed across the globe in US Properties. The BAM 1020 provides reliable PM2.5 data to the employees in each country. The program started 10 years ago at the US Embassy in Beijing. In observation of the United States’ Air Quality Awareness Week and in cooperation with the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic, the Embassy of the United States installed a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-approved air quality monitor at the Embassy complex. The EPA currently posts real-time data from the monitor on its AirNow website: https://www.airnow.gov/index.cfm?action=airnow.global_summary. “This air monitor is part of a larger effort by the United States to support efforts to improve air quality and the environment. We look forward to further cooperation with the people of Kyrgyzstan to protect this country’s incredible natural beauty,” explained Ambassador Donald Lu. The initiative is part of an effort to replicate the U.S. approach to a
