Particulate Matter Measurements: Instrumentation, Calibration and its Chemical Analyses for Source Tracing by Dr. Shankar G. Aggarwal

In Indian cities, air pollution becomes a major problem, because it directly or indirectly relates to many issues, e.g. health, climate, regional weather, transport, trade and business, sports activities, daily-life, etc. Therefore, several agencies and the government are involved in the measurement of air quality to make strong policies and regulations for its control.The government and state governments invest a huge money on the measurement of air quality of different cities, and as a result, more than 700 continuous air-monitoring stations are working across the country. However, the reliability of data quality is a question in most of the cases especially when we talk about the traceability of data received. This talk has focused on the NPLI developments, discussion of air quality measurements, traceability, and other related issues. Because PM2.5 is a governing factor of air quality, the discussion will be more emphasize on different PM2.5 measurement techniques, our new development of PM2.5 sampler and its calibration facility. In addition, the talk will discuss about chemical analyses including stable isotope analysis of particulate matter for tracing its sources.
