Ricardo-AEA can help with air quality data management

David Madle

Contact David Madle to discuss air quality data management & monitoring issues:

  • Air quality data management to either AURN (national network standards) or Local Air Quality Management (LAQM TG (09)) standards.
  • UKAS accredited Quality Control Audits, these audits will provide valuable input to the data management process through:
    • Independent confirmation of appropriate data scaling factors for each gaseous instrument based on our own audit gas traceable to national metrology standards
    • Independent assessment of analyser performance
    • An assessment of the site calibration cylinder concentrations, critical to accurate routine data scaling
  • Ad-hoc monitoring as required to meet your specifications – we able to tailor short to medium term monitoring campaigns to your requirements, to include everything from advice on monitoring location’s appropriateness right through to provision of ratified data sets in a format that will drop seamlessly into you LAQM reporting process.
