1. NIST Weather Station for Photovoltaic and Building System Research
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1913
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 3/29/2016
Author: Matthew T Boyd
Abstract: A weather station has been constructed on the Gaithersburg, Maryland campus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as part of a research effort to assess performance of photovoltaic and building systems. This weather station inc ...

2. Measurement Challenges and Metrology for Monitoring CO2 Emissions from Smokestacks ‹ Workshop Summary
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1201
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 1/20/2016
Authors: Aaron N Johnson, Rodney A Bryant, Tamae M Wong, James R Whetstone, Eric Harman, Woong Kang, Keith A Gillis, Hsin-Hung Lee, Iosif I Shinder, Liang Zhang
Abstract: On April 20-21, 2015, NIST hosted a workshop that, through measurement science, enabled the owners of stationary sources (primarily the electric power industry) and their regulatory agencies (federal and state) to better characterize greenhouse gas ( ...

3. Contact efflorescence as a pathway for crystallization of atmospherically relevant particles
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 12/29/2015
Authors: Joshua A Gordon, Ryan D Davis, Margaret A Tolbert, Shuichi B Ushijimaa, Sara Lance
Abstract: Inadequate knowledge of the phase state of atmospheric particles represents a large source of uncertainty in global climate and atmospheric models. Efflorescence, the process of salt crystal nucleation from a supersaturated aqueous solution upon e ...

4. Integrated path detection of CO^d^2 and CH^d^4 using a waveform driven electro-optic single sideband laser source
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 7/10/2015
Authors: Gerd Achim Wagner, Stephen E Maxwell, David F Plusquellic
Abstract: Integrated path concentrations of ambient levels of carbon dioxide and methane have been measured during nighttime periods at NIST, Boulder (CO, USA), using a ground-based, eye-safe laser system. In this contribution, we describe the transmitter and ...

5. Long Working-Distance Optical Trap for in Situ Analysis of Contact-Induced Phase Transformations
Topic: Climate Science
Published: 5/11/2015
Authors: Joshua A Gordon, Ryan D Davis, Sara Lance, Margaret A Tolbert
Abstract: The development and characterization of a long working-distance optical trap to analyze a diverse range of particle phase transformations and crystal growth processes is described. Utilizing an upward propagating Gaussian beam and a down-ward propag ...

6. 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 ...

7. 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. ...

8. 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 ...

9. 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 D. 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 ...
