  • Elemental composition of ambient aerosols measured with high temporal resolution using an online XRF spectrometer

    Abstract. An Xact 625 ambient metals monitor was tested during a three-week field campaign at the rural, traffic-influenced site Härkingen in Switzerland during summer of 2015. The objective was to characterize the handling and operation of the instrument, evaluate the data quality by intercomparison with other independent measurements, and test its applicability for aerosol ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...
