Regulatory Air Quality Monitoring
Air quality monitoring relies on special analyser systems to continuously measure pollutant concentrations in the ambient air. Typically, this requires a network of stations in locations that are representative of different pollution source types. For instance, stations in urban street canyons or on major roads provide representative measurements regarding air pollution from road traffic. Another example are measuring stations on industrial sites. Furthermore, there are measuring stations that determine the background pollution.
The data of all measuring stations of a measurement network are centralised in a Data Centre and stored in a database. They are then available for further processing.
