Turkish Government air quality network
Casella Monitor, manufacturer of Ambient Air Quality gas analyzers and systems for the natural environment, has successfully completed the first phase of a new Turkish Government air quality monitoring network by installing 25 air conditioned stations (Enclosures) in the most polluted cities in Turkey for the Ministry of Environment and Forests.
The Air Quality systems use the latest data retrieval and data management software package, Enview 2000, which collects and transmits data continously from each air monitoring site to all 25 cities, as well as the central station in Ankara. The data is also posted to a dedicated Website.
Initially, Particulate (PM10) and Sulphur Dioxide (SO2) parameters will be continously measured from the air conditioned monitoring stations with additional gas parameters to be added at a later date.
The first phase of the new Turkish Government network is expected to extend to 81 cities throughout Turkey by the end of 2005.
