Background

Types of air quality monitoring station

  • General air quality monitoring stations: 60 sites
  • Industrial air quality monitoring stations: 5 sites (Toufen, Xianxi, Mailiao, Taixi, Qianzhen)
  • Traffic air quality monitoring stations: 5 sites (Fengshan, Sanchong, Zhongli, Yonghe, Fuxing)
  • National park monitoring stations: 2 sites (Hengchun, Yangming)(Hengchun simultaneous as the general station)
  • Background air quality monitoring stations: 4 sites (Wanli, Guanyin, Sanyi, Qiaotou) (Wanli, Sanyi simultaneous as the general station)
  • Other air quality monitoring stations: 2 sites (Puli, Guanshan)

Principles for locating site

  • Types of the monitoring station
  • Distribution of pollution source and pollutant concentration
  • Topography, geography and climatic conditions
  • Distribution of populations and traffic conditions
  • Benefit to distinguish the effect of protection control countermeasure
  • Urban planning, district planning or other land exploitation planning

Principles for setting sampler

  • The sampler should not influence directly by pollutions of flue and exhausting port
  • Avoiding the obstacles nearby sampler to disturb airflow and pollutant concentration
  • Avoiding the surface of buildings and obstacles nearby sampler to disturb the pollutant concentration
  • Determine the height of sampler base on the vertical distribution of pollutant concentration
