Magnetic Levels in Tree Leaves Indicate Levels of Air Pollution

Tuesday, October 20, 2009 13:53 No Comments

Researchers at Western Washington University are trying to find low-tech ways to measure levels of air pollution and air quality. They have come up with a new study which shows that leaves along bus routes were up to ten times more magnetic than leaves on quieter streets. The magnetism comes from tiny particles of pollution, [...]
