Wildland fire as an atmospheric source of viable microbial aerosols and biological ice nucleating particles

Published in ISMEJ, 2020

In this study we analyzed microbial cells and biological ice nucleating particles (INPs) in smoke emitted from eight prescribed wildland fires in North Florida.

Scavenging of Sub-Micron to Micron-Sized Microbial Aerosols during Simulated Rainfall

Published in Atmosphere, 2020

The processes removing aerosols from the atmosphere during rainfall are generically referred to as scavenging. Scavenging influences aerosol distributions in the atmosphere, with consequent effects on cloud properties, radiative forcing, and human health. In this study, we investigated the below-cloud scavenging process, specifically focusing on the scavenging of 0.2 to 2 ┬Ám-sized microbial aerosols by populations of water drops with average diameters of 3.0 and 3.6 mm.
