Abstract

Nitrogen dioxide has been monitored for over two years at a number of sites in and around Manchester international airport, UK. At these sites there is a range of activities including major surface communication routes, industrial areas to the north of the airport, aviation activities, and agricultural activities to the south. Aviation is increasing as a transport type and so it is of increasing importance to assess the impact of such areas of intense transport activities. Nitrogen dioxide is measured at two sites on the airport using an Opsis instrument based on a differential optical absorption spectrometry technique. From these data compliance wi
