"Source apportionment of carbonaceous aerosols using radiocarbon"

Carbonaceous aerosols are a major fraction of particulate matter (PM) in the
atmosphere and contribute substantially to climate and health effektus. For
mitigation of emissions, a detailed knowledge of sources and formation
processes is necessary, which is a difficult task. A differentiation of
fossil from non-fossil emissions is provided by analysis of the long-lived
radioisotope 14C (radiocarbon, half-life 5730 years), as fossil material does
not contain 14C anymore because of its age, whereas non-fossil material is on
the contemporary 14C level. Carbonaceous aerosols are often differentiated
into organic carbon (OC) and elemental carbon (EC) according to their
physical and chemical properties. For 14C source apportionment, it is
necessary to separate both fractions from each other efficiently in order to
omit biases. This presentation will show a procedure for the separation of OC
and EC with a thermal-optical aerosol analyzer combined with online 14C
analysis using accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) and the application of
this technique to air quality studies in Europe and East Asia.

Az előadás előtt 10:30-kor tea. Vendégeket szívesen látunk.
