EPA \ TAQMN \ Air Quality Monitoring \ TAQMN site \ Goal


Air quality monitoring data is the major basis of air quality protection and air pollution control. To have an effective control on air quality relies on the long-term operation and well-maintained monitoring system. To acquire the high-quality, complete, representative and reliable monitoring data, the monitoring operation need the comprehensive support process. The operation of the monitoring station includes the space configuration, the type of equipment, maintenance and quality assurance, and so on. All processes have to be well done, to get the qualified monitoring data.

The following list contains the objectives of monitoring stations list as following:

  1. To interpret legitimate air quality
  2. To monitor the long-term trends of air pollutants
  3. Assessment of the effectiveness of the control strategy
  4. Analysis and evaluation the public health threat or possible damage of air pollution
  5. Understanding and assessment of the natural environment threat or possible damage of air pollution
  6. Development and validation of the predictive air quality dispersion model

We have 76 air quality monitoring stations, including 60 general stations , 5 industrial stations, 2 national park stations (1 station simultaneous as the general station), 4 background stations (2 stations simultaneous as the general station), 6 traffic stations and 2 other stations. The monitoring air quality data is real-time presented and archived as historical data in our World Wide Web site.
