Environmental Monitoring

ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING


The Department of Physical Sciences at MTU plays an important role in air quality monitoring on the Bishopstown Campus as part of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Air Quality Index programme. Several air quality monitoring stations, including Ozone, CO2, NO2, SO2 as well as particulate (PM2.5) monitors, are located on the Bishopstown campus and maintained by our departmental staff Mr Stephen Collins and Mr Eamonn Butler.

The image above shows the Beta-ray Attenuation Monitor which is located inside the larger monitoring unit. This measures particulate matter concentration in the air.

 

The Department is involved in a number of international research collaborations to develop next generation sensors for environmental analysis through our CAPPA and Mass Spectrometry research groups.
