  • New insight into improving air quality measurements

    Researchers from the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and King's College London have identified a mechanism which is responsible for under-reporting of peak nitrogen dioxide concentrations at some air quality monitoring stations, and the best ways to minimise this. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is an air pollutant formed when fuels are burned, ...
