  • What is the Difference between a PM2.5 Monitor and a PM10 Monitor?

    Ambient air particulate monitoring is of more interest than ever before. The reason is new public awareness of the health effects of small particles suspended in the air, in combination with increased vehicle fleets emitting such particles. “PM” stands for particulate matter. The number (usually 10 or 2.5) indicates the size of the particulates monitored. ...

  • Modelling long-term averages of local ambient air pollution in Oslo, Norway: evaluation of nitrogen dioxide, PM10 and PM2.5

    Large seasonal variations in climate as in Norway give challenges for air pollution modelling, especially of Particulate Matter (PM) that seldom has been evaluated. The EPISODE model calculated ambient concentrations of nitrogen dioxide (NO2), PM with diameter ...

  • Dust monitoring

    Generally, two different approaches are used to measure the amount of dust deposited on a surface; Determination of the soiling of a surface, by a change in its properties; Determination of the quantity of dust deposited, by weight. WHAT IS DUST? Dust is a generic term used to describe fine particles that are suspended in the atmosphere. Dust comes from a wide variety of sources, including soil, ...

  • Air Quality Monitoring

    Why monitor air quality? Well, to monitor is to know. Everything else is just more or less qualified guesses. International, national and local air quality targets and limits are also tied to monitoring results. What is Air Quality? How is air quality ...

  • Monitoring Environmental Quality

    ' In order to determine the effectiveness of actions to improve environmental quality it is necessary to be able to measure relevant environmental parameters at a level of detail which is accurate enough to distinguish the anticipated changes. However, the establishment and maintenance of monitoring systems is time-consuming and expensive and therefore the scale of such systems needs to be kept ...

  • Why monitor dust in the workplace?

    Almost any place of employment can present a potential threat to health and safety from airborne particulates and aerosols. It is important to note, however, that dust hazards are not necessarily visible to the human eye and that the finest particles can represent the greatest threat because of their ability to travel deepest into the lungs. Effective monitoring is therefore key to the ...

  • 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 ...

  • TSI dust monitors and Lufft weather sensors make a great team

    Both aerosols and wind speed and direction influence air quality significantly. This is why TSI Incorporated, a world leader in particle measurements, cooperates with Lufft USA in order to provide complete systems to measure PM2.5 (fine dust), PM10 (particles with a maximum diameter of 10 μm) as well as total PM levels. TSI Incorporated offers a variety of aerosol ...

  • Personal exposure to particulate air pollution in transport microenvironments

    Personal measurements of exposure to particulate air pollution (PM10, PM2.5, PM1) were simultaneously madeduring walking and in-car journeys on two suburban routes in Northampton, UK, during the winter of 1999/2000.Comparisons were made between concentrations found in each transport mode by particle fraction, between differentparticle fractions by transport mode, and between transport ...

  • Influence of sea-land breezes on the tempospatial distribution of atmospheric aerosols over coastal region

    The influence of sea-land breezes (SLBs) on the spatial distribution and temporal variation of particulate matter (PM) in the atmosphere was investigated over coastal Taiwan. PM was simultaneously sampled at inland and offshore locations during three intensive sampling periods. The intensive PM sampling protocol was continuously conducted over a 48-hr period. During this time, PM2.5 and ...

  • Spatial and temporal differences of Particulate Matter in Berlin

    Particulate Matter (PM) is still a problem in urban areas. The concentration of PM in Berlin and its variability is the subject of this study based on data of six official PM10 monitoring stations and a measuring program carried out by the Institute of Geography covering PM2.5 and coarse PM measurements at 19 sites, distinguished between traffic related and urban background sites. The impact of ...

  • Understanding ambient air quality instrument operating ranges

    In order to maximize the performance of an air quality monitoring station, careful selection of instrumentations is essential. One of the key issues is to have a good understanding of what pollutants need to be measured and at what concentrations. There are several different types of air quality monitoring, these include: Trace/Background Monitoring This is performed in areas where ...

  • Chemical characterization and preliminary source contribution of fine particulate matter in the Mexicali/Imperial valley border area

    ABSTRACTThe airshed shared by the Valley of Mexicali in Mexico and Imperial Valley in the United States frequently experiences high levels of particulate matter (PM) less than 10 m (PM10). However, very little information exists on the concentration  and composition of fine PM (PM 2.5 m, or PM2.5) in the region, particularly on the Mexican side of the border. This paper  presents ...

  • Relationship between Particulate Matter measured by Optical Particle Counter and Mortality in Seoul, Korea, during 2001

    This study was performed to examine the relationship between particulate matter exposure and mortality in Seoul, Korea, during the year 2001. Particulate matter data were collected using an optical particle counter (OPC) and national monitoring stations in Seoul.
