Aviation and volcanic ash hazards: a flipped classroom approach to study complex systems
Educational practice and, in particular, the flipped classroom models have had a significant impact on higher education recently. Challenging students with questions and problem – solving activities
Co-combustion of distillery sludge and coal for application in boiler and subsequent utilization of the generated bottom ash
TLDR
The study provided a promising approach towards diverting combustion bottom ash from landfills for its utilization in various industries which can be a possible cost-effective solution.

Origin and characterisation of microparticles in an ice core from the Central Dronning Maud Land, East Antarctica
TLDR
The scanning electron microscopy–energy dispersive spectroscopic (SEM–EDS) study of selected samples from an ice core collected from Central Dronning Maud Land (CDML), East Antarctica, revealed several microparticles which suggest their origin from either volcanic eruptions or continental dust.
Speciation of individual mineral particles of micrometer size by the combined use of attenuated total reflectance-Fourier transform-infrared imaging and quantitative energy-dispersive electron probe X-ray microanalysis techniques.
TLDR
This work demonstrates that the combined use of the two single particle analytical techniques can powerfully characterize externally heterogeneous mineral particle samples in detail and has great potential for the characterization of airborne mineral dust particles.
Single-particle mineralogy of Chinese soil particles by the combined use of low-Z particle electron probe X-ray microanalysis and attenuated total reflectance-FT-IR imaging techniques.
TLDR
This analytical methodology was applied to characterize six soil samples collected at arid areas in China, in order to identify mineral types present in the samples, which have a great potential for the characterization of Asian dust and mineral dust particles.
Chemical speciation of individual airborne particles by the combined use of quantitative energy-dispersive electron probe X-ray microanalysis and attenuated total reflection Fourier transform-infrared imaging techniques.
TLDR
This work demonstrates that more detailed physiochemical properties of individual airborne particles can be obtained using this approach than when either the low-Z particle EPMA or ATR-FT-IR imaging technique is used alone.
Investigation of aged Asian dust particles by the combined use of quantitative ED-EPMA and ATR-FTIR imaging
Abstract. In our previous works, it was demonstrated that the combined use of quantitative energy-dispersive electron probe X-ray microanalysis (ED-EPMA), which is also known as low-Z particle EPMA,
Identification and characterization of individual airborne volcanic ash particles by Raman microspectroscopy
TLDR
The Raman microspectroscopic identification and characterization of individual airborne volcanic ash particles is presented for the first time and the differences between the spectra of aged and fresh particles were observed, suggesting differences in their chemical composition and/or structure.

TLDR
It was confirmed that the ATR-FT-IR imaging technique can provide sufficient FT-IR absorption signals to perform molecular speciation of individual particles of micrometer size when applied to artificially generated aerosol particles such as ascorbic acid and NaNO(3) aerosols.
