Research from the Bertram group featured in the press:
- Coexistence of three liquid phases in individual atmospheric aerosol particles (March 9, 2021) Researchers in the Bertram Research Group, in collaboration with researchers at McGill University and the University of California, Irvine, have discovered three liquid phases in individual aerosol particles. The original paper was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.
This paper has been highlighted by several online magazines: ScienceDaily, EurekAlert!, The Academic Times, AZOCleantech, ScienMag, New Atlas, Environmental News Network, AlphaGalileo, Phys.org, and COSMOS magazine.
- Environmental Conditions Affect Air Pollutant Degradation (February 22, 2016) summarizes our recent 2016 paper published in Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, showing that low temperature and humidity slow down photochemical reactions.
- Scratching the Surface: Studying Sea Spray Aerosols at EMSL (December 21, 2015) featured our research in the Arctic on the CGSS Amundsen.
- Paper published in Nature: A marine biogenic source of atmospheric ice-nucleating particles (September 2015): A team of international researchers including members of the Bertram Group receive press coverage for their Nature paper that showed that phytoplankton waste in ocean spray could trigger ice formation in clouds. News articles that picked up the story include: BBC, Sciencedaily, Myscience, Europa, EurekAlert!, and Stonybrook University News.
- Probing Aerosols One By One (March 31, 2014): Methods reveal the chemistry of individual sea spray and mineral dust aerosol particles (From Chemical & Engineering News). This article featured our research on how changes in relative humidity can lead to phase transitions within individual aerosol particles.
- Tiny airborne pollutants lead a double life (July 30, 2012): Researchers have provided visual evidence that atmospheric particles separate into distinct chemical compositions during their life cycle. Observations could have important implications for modeling global climate change and predicting air quality conditions. (From Science Daily)
