Keeping an eye on air quality

The 10th air monitor designed to keep tabs on air pollution in the Barnett Shale is up and running on The University of Texas at Arlington campus, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality said Wednesday, according an Associated Press report in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The monitor is at 1101 S. Pecan St., immediately northwest of Carrizo Oil & Gas' multi-well pad site on the campus' southern edge. It is the third automated gas chromatograph activated this year.

Collaborative research results featured work by UT Arlington physics professor Wei Chen and members of his lab to synthesize a hybrid nanomaterial for use in a prototype thermoelectric generator. The research, which was done in collaboration with Louisiana Tech University, is featured in a recent issue of the journal Nanotechnology.
