Environmental & Pollution Control

Wind Data for Environmental Monitoring Stations

Air pollution comes from many different sources: stationary sources such as factories, power plants, and smelters and smaller sources such as dry cleaners and degreasing operations; mobile sources such as cars, buses, planes, trucks, and trains; and naturally occurring sources such as windblown dust, and volcanic eruptions, all contribute to air pollution.

The amount of pollution also has an effect on total Air Quality. These pollution sources can also emit a wide variety of pollutants. These pollutants are monitored by national, state and local organisations.

Monitoring stations are set up in mobile or fixed facilities equiped with instrumentation to monitor pollutants down to very low levels. Part of this instrumention invariably includes a wind sensor, as it is important to know the influence of wind on any modelling that is done on the results.
