  • Two instruments of ECOTECH models :
      1) AURORA 1000, single wavelength for visibility scattering at 525 nm)
      2) AURORA 3000, wavelength for visibility scattering and backscattering at 450, 525 and 635 nm)

Aerosol Samplings

  • Aerosol collection sampler low volume:
    two instruments with sampling head at PM1, PM2.5 or PM10
    (models Leckel SEQ47/50 and Derenda PNS 16T-3.1)
  • Aerosol collection sampler medium volume with sampling head at PM1.

The aerosol filters analyze for:

  1. Ions by ion chromatography
    (Cl-, NO3-, SO4-2, C2O4-2, Na+, NH4+, K+, Mg2+, Ca2+)

  2. Metals by ICP-OES or ICP-MS
    (Pb, Ni, As, Cd, Hg, Al, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mg, Sb, V, Zn)

  3. Elemental Carbon and Organic Carbon (EC, OC) by sunset analyzer 

  4. Soluble Particulate Carbon and Particulate Organic Nitrogen (TOC - TON)

  5. Iron, phosphorus (techniques using UV spectrophotometer)
