Monitoring types
                 Equipment
 PM10 – TEOM analyser measures particles with
  aerodynamic diameter smaller than 10 microns
  (breathable particles) by weighing the particles.
 NOx –Chemiluminescence analyser measures
  how many parts per billion of NOx in a sampled
  volume of air.
 NOx diffusion tube – works on exposure is sent to
  an independent laboratory for analysis.
   Local Air Quality Management
 Since 1997 LA duty to review and assess local AQ

 7 pollutants C6 H6, 1,3 Butadiene, CO, PB, NO2, PM10
  and SO2

 Majority of these pollutants well below the AQO

 Nitrogen dioxide has exceeded the AQO of 40ug/m3

 PM10 not yet exceeded the annual mean AQO of
  40ug/m3
                Independence
•   DEFRA
•   UWE
•   Kings College London
•   Bristol Scientific Services
Temp AQ Monitoring
                Future
 Installation of Denton Road early November

 Installation of temp A26 roadside late
  November
