Automatic Monitoring Sites
The Council currently has 1 automatic analyser located in Disley.
This units provide high quality, real-time data which can be used to analyse patterns and try to find out more about the characteristics of the pollution as it varies over time. This information is extremely useful for identifying causes of pollution and highlighting where efforts need to be targeted to reduce air pollution.
Whilst providing high quality data, this equipment is expensive to purchase and maintain and often compromises have to be made in terms of its location for logistical reasons.
Our monitoring site measures levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2).
