History and characterization of atmospheric black carbon in the Anthropocene
MetadataShow full item record
Black carbon aerosols (BC) from incomplete combustion have substantial effects on the atmosphere and climate, but climate forecasting is poorly constrained due to uncertainties in atmospheric lifetime and removal rates. Herein, we detail the recent history, characteristics, and composition of BC deposited in rain from Australia and ice cores from Antarctica. Results show new complex particle characteristics and an increase in BC in West Antarctica driven by changing emissions and atmospheric transport conditions.

Effects of CO2 on gas evolution and char structure formation during lump coal pyrolysis at elevated pressuresBai, Yonghui; Wang, P.; Yan, L.; Liu, C.; Li, Fan; Xie, K. (2013)The gas release properties and changes in the char structure during lump coal pyrolysis were investigated in Ar and CO2 atmosphere. Fixed bed reactor and gas chromatography were employed to generate char at four pressures ...
