Air Quality Measurements
Air pollution is defined as the presence of one or more contaminants in the atmosphere with such a concentration and for such a duration that causes it (them) to be harmful to human health or welfare, animal or plant life. Air pollution can cause health problems and it can also damage the environment, property, and climate change. The impact of these pollutants will not be limited to the surrounding or adjacent areas of the pollution source but it can affect the areas farther away depending on the weather conditions.
Since air quality can have such a big impact on health and environment, Air Studies Division (ASD) with cooperation with governmental and private institutions monitor the levels of air pollutants in the ambient air, inside work environment, from stationary sources and from vehicles emissions. For more details, please refer to our projects list.
Air studies division (ASD) has developed expertise and high qualified human resources with the required scientific knowledge and long experience in air quality field. ASD staff have long experience in operating, maintaining and calibrating the monitoring equipment. Most of air quality measurements (ambient air, stack emission and work environment) provided by ASD are carried out according to the requirements of ISO 17025.
