ClearfLo, Detling, UK 2012
From January 22 to February 15, 2012 we deployed our MOVI-HRToF-CIMS in Detling, UK, one of the sites of the ClearfLo project (http://www.clearflo.ac.uk/). The ClearfLo (Clean Air for London) project involves air pollution monitoring sites and meteorological measurements to investigate boundary layer pollution across London.
Local sources such as solid fuel burning and traffic exhaust, but also transport from the city of London and the European continent created an interesting dataset to investigate organic gas- and particle-phase species.
This work is funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy: DE-SC0006036. ClearfLo is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) for three years from Jan 2010, and is coordinated by the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS).
