Air Quality monitoring in Jersey 2018

Produced by the Environment (Infrastructure, Housing and Environment)
Authored by Ricardo Energy & Environment and published on 22 May 2019
Cost: £13,870.00


​​The Government of Jersey has undertaken a programme of air quality measurements and analysis since 1997. This ongoing monitoring programme has provided a long-term dataset of pollutant concentrations.

The report presents the results from the 2018 survey and compares the data from Jersey with:

  • relevant air quality limit values, objectives and guidelines
  • data from selected UK monitoring stations
  • previous years' monitoring programmes

The objective, as in previous years, was to monitor at sites where pollution concentrations were expected to be high, and compare these with background locations.

The monitoring sites consisted of urban and rural background sites, in addition to locations where higher pollutant concentrations might be expected, such as:

  • roadside and kerbside sites
  • locations close to specific emissions sources, eg Jersey Airport
