Meteorological Instruments for Local Authority Air Quality Monitoring Systems
Accurate Air Quality Monitoring
Understanding the sources of pollution and its distribution is important to local authorities so that they can take steps and introduce policies to reduce it. A number of factors need to be known in order for the appropriate analysis to take place - wind speed and direction, temperature and humidy data is essential for this analysis.
With no requirement for on-going calibration or maintenance and no moving mechanical parts, the use of solid-state wind sensors for pollution monitoring reduces maintenance overhead and operational costs.
