Spatial Distribution and Chemical Composition of Road Dust in Two High-Altitude Latin American Cities
Road dust (RD) resuspension is one of the main sources of particulate matter in cities with adverse impacts on air quality, health, and climate. Studies on the variability of the deposited PM10
Indoor Nanoparticle Characterization in Construction Waste Recycling Companies over Time
Building activity is a significant source of atmospheric contamination by ultrafine dust. Cognizant of this fact, those active in the use and recycling of construction materials must be aware of the
An Analysis of Nanoparticles Derived from Coal Fly Ash Incorporated into Concrete
The environmental benefits of incorporating coal fly ash (CFA) into the concrete manufacturing process as a partial substitute for Portland cement are well known. What is less studied is the

The amount of official information presented in this review is intended to open new ways of investigation about the growing global pollution of persistent aircraft trails and their possible links with solar geoengineering by SAI.
Origin of color variations of thin, nano-sized layers of volcanic cinder from the Sierra Negra Volcano of the Galapagos Islands
Volcanic cinder, also known as scoria, is an extrusive igneous rock that forms when gas-rich magmas of basaltic or andesitic composition cool quickly. It is typically dark in color, ranging from
Size-Selective Detection of Nanoparticles in Solution and Air by Imprinting.
This work applies an approach termed nanoparticle-imprinted matrices (NAIM), which is based on creating voids in a thin layer by imprinting NPs followed by their removal, to allow online monitoring of NPs in air and liquids.
Location Optimisation in the Process of Designing Infrastructure of Point Pollutant Emitters to Meet Specific Environmental Protection Standards
This article addresses the challenge of searching for the optimal location for a newly designed pollutant emitter (new factory or other facility) in relation to the requirements imposed by


Characteristics of Trace Elements in Volcanic ash of Kelud Eruption in East Java, Indonesia
The eruption of Mount Kelud that occurred on February 13, 2014, ejected a huge plume of ash and sand exceeding 26 km into the air which moved west over the island. The elements content in volcanic
