Researchers working on forest ecology and ecological restoration have been employing state-of-the-art light detection and ranging (lidar) technology in extensive applications.
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are released as gases from specific solids or liquids and contain a range of chemicals. Several such chemicals are related to various harmful human health effects, right from eye, nose, and throat irritation to the damage of kidney, liver, and central nervous system.
Researchers at KAUST have identified that pairing ground-based sensors with airborne drones could greatly help firefighters while battling wildfires.
The frequency of wildfires is steadily rising as climate change creates increasingly favorable conditions for such conflagrations. Dry leaves and plant life, a lack of soil moisture, and increased temperatures amongst other conditions provide fuel for such infernos and have significantly increased what is known as wildfire season.
Vaisala, a global leader in weather, environmental, and industrial measurement, today announced the availability of its best-in-class air quality sensor and monitoring solution, which is cost-effective, scalable, accurate, and easy-to-set-up – putting cities in control of air quality decisions.
A method for making ultrathin sensors for monitoring the health of crops could help farmers grow more food without putting extra demands on the land.
Developments in wearable technology are transforming the way people live, work, play, as well as how healthcare is given and received.
Scientists have established a new method for detecting the presence of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in air filters placed on public buses. The findings, published on the medRxiv* preprint server, highlight the potential use of air filters in the fight against COVID-19.
