Please join us on March 12, 2014 at 10:30 AM Washington DC time (Eastern US) for a webinar to showcase Alliance-supported research on cookstoves and black carbon.  Dr. Nithya Ramanathan and colleagues will summarize their research project ‘Field Study of Black Carbon Reductions from Use of Improved Cookstoves’. 

A collaborative team of investigators from Project Surya, including The Energy Resources Institute, Nexleaf, and Scripps Institution of Oceanography conducted a field study to estimate the relative reductions in black carbon emissions when switching from traditional mud stoves to improved cookstoves in Ashrafpur, a rural Indian village in the Indo-Gangetic plains.  A unique feature of this study was the use of innovative technology which uses cell phones to enable automated measurements of aerosols and temperature.
