    Fluorescent Microspheres – Polymer Spheres – 1g/cc

    The University of Utah in collaboration with USDA Labs in Corvallis, OR performed five field campaigns in commercial vineyards in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.  Among the methodologies developed over the five-years experiment was the use of fluorescent microsheres as a fungal spore analog.  The microspheres used were inert fluorescing polyethylene micropsheres in four separate colors manufactured by Cospheric.

    The article attached below outlines the technology developed as well as microspheres sampling and meteorological equipment used in the experiments.  The authors of the article conclude that “these techniques have enabled for incredibly detailed research into particle plume dynamics in a vineyard.”
