Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s)
NO2 is measured in real time at Halkett Place and at 12 sites around the Island using passive diffusion tubes which are sent off monthly for analysis. Diffusion tubes are also used to measure four VOC’s at six other sites around the Island.
The results and analysis of this monitoring is published annually in a report by UK consultants Ricardo-AEA and is available to download below.
