1. Design and Capabilities of NISTs Scale-Model Smokestack Simulator (SMSS)
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 4/17/2015
Authors: Aaron N Johnson, Joey T Boyd, Eric Harman, Mohammad Mohammad Khalil, Jacob E Ricker, Christopher J Crowley, Rodney A Bryant, Iosif I Shinder
Abstract: The amount of CO^d2^ emitted from a coal-fired power plant (CFPP) is measured by continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS) permanently installed in the exhaust smokestack. Both the CO^d2^ concentration and the bulk flow are continuously measured ...

2. Progress Towards a NIST Microwave Brightness Temperature Standard for Remote Sensing
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 12/4/2014
Authors: Derek Anderson Houtz, David K Walker, Dazhen Gu
Abstract: We discuss developments at NIST towards improving the passive microwave brightness temperature standard. By reducing uncertainty we can provide a better calibration for improved congruency between future weather and climate monitoring radiometers. ...

3. Comparing Methods for Determining Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Stationary Sources
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 3/3/2014
Authors: Rodney A Bryant, Matthew F Bundy, Ruowen Zong
Abstract: The largest source of carbon dioxide emissions is fossil fuel combustion. Since 1990, more than 90% of carbon dioxide emissions within the United States have come from fossil fuel combustion. Stationary sources such as power plants and industrial ...

4. Computational Design of New Refrigerant Fluids Based on Environmental, Safety, and Thermodynamic Characteristics
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 9/17/2012
Authors: Andrei F Kazakov, Mark O McLinden, Michael Frenkel
Abstract: We present a systematic search for new classes of refrigerants that would possess low values of Global Warming Potential (GWP), along with low- to moderate flammability and suitable thermodynamic characteristics. We have developed new methods for est ...

5. SORCE SSI Workshop Summary
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 7/1/2012
Authors: Joseph Paul Rice, Jerald Harder, Martin Snow, Thomas Woods
Abstract: Over 30 scientists and calibration specialists gathered at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, Maryland, for the first Solar Spectral Irradiance (SSI) Variations Workshop, Feb. 28-March 1, 2012. The purpose of t ...

6. Amplification of the optical absorption cross section for aerosols of soot with a nonabsorbing coating from photoacoustic measurements
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 5/13/2011
Authors: Pedro Bueno, Daniel K Havey, George William Mulholland, Joseph Terence Hodges, Keith A Gillis, Russell R Dickerson, Michael Russel Zachariah
Abstract: A quantitative understanding of the absorption and scattering properties of mixed soot and aerosol particles is necessary for evaluating the Earth‰s energy balance. Uncertainty in the net radiative forcing of atmospheric aerosols is relatively large ...

8. Shape Discrimination in Liquid Chromatography Using Charge Transfer Phases
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 11/1/1991
Authors: Lane C Sander, Reenie May Parris, Stephen A Wise, P. Garrigues

9. Mobile Sources of Atmospheric Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons: A Roadway Tunnel Study
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 10/1/1989
Authors: Bruce A Benner Jr, G. E. Gordon, Stephen A Wise

10. Experiences in Environmental Specimen Banking
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 3/1/1989
Authors: Stephen A Wise, B. J. Koster, Reenie May Parris, Michele Miller Schantz, S. F. Stone, Rolf Louis Zeisler
