A new way to measure carbon in the atmosphere and its source

A tool has been developed to provide environmental managers and researchers with new information about pollution which will produce a better understanding of the role it plays in climate change.

The Multi-wavelength absorption black carbon instrument (MABI), a technology designed and built at ANSTO to measure the concentration of carbon in the atmosphere and determine its source, is now commercially available.

The modular desktop technology can be used to distinguish black carbon particles from two primary sources: diesel vehicles and biomass burning, from bushfires or crop burning.
