Aurell, J., A. Holder, Bill Mitchell, B. Seay, V. Chirayath, AND B. Gullett. Developments in Emission Measurements Using Lightweight Sensors and Samplers. Emission Inventory Conference, Baltimore, Maryland, August 14 - 18, 2017.
This poster presents a summary of developments in aerial sampling methods since 2010.
Lightweight emission measurement systems making use of miniaturized sensors and samplers have been developed for portable and aerial sampling for an array of pollutants. Shoebox-sized systems called “Kolibri”, weighing 3-5 kg, have been deployed on NASA-flown unmanned aerial systems (UASs, or “drones”) to characterize plume emissions from open combustion sources. A larger instrument system (20+ kg) called the “Flyer” is lofted into pollutant streams using a tethered, helium-filled aerostat or balloon
