Our Company

These particles reduce visibility; adversely impact human health; and contribute to regional and global climate change. Aethalometers are installed on all continents: from cities in China to the South Pole, from the Sahara Desert to the Amazon basin.

Research into methods for the real-time measurement of light absorbing aerosols began in Berkeley in approximately 1978. The first-ever Aethalometer® was deployed in a field study in the summer of 1980: the first aircraft measurements were made in 1982, and in 1986 an Aethalometer started making measurements of aerosol Black Carbon at the most remote location on the planet, the South Pole Observatory. Magee Scientific Company was established that same year to develop the Aethalometer further and make it available to the aerosol research and monitoring community.
