Physical, Optical and Chemical Properties of Light Absorbing Aerosols and their Climatic Impact

Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech have published a PhD by Susan Mathai investigating Aerosols and their impact on the earth’s weather and climate.

During one of the experiments conducted on the eastern side of the Indo-Gangetic Plain (IGP) in West Bengal, India, samples were collected on Silson’s silicon nitride membranes “for multi modal offline analysis to study the particles’ chemical composition, phase, mixing state, and morphology”
