Optical Remote Measurements of Particles in Emission Gas Plumes

University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för tillämpad signalbehandling

Abstract: This project aims to use temporal and spatial data analysis to express the measured air pollutant concentrations as well as their relation with the aerosol traces, indicated by the intensity ratio (IR). The surveying were performed during a field campaign of several days of mobile optical remote sensing measurements in Tianjing city, China. The spectroscopic data were recorded by different spectrometers from which the most two mature techniques are the Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS) and the Solar Occultation Flux (SOF). Besides, a third measuring approach of using a ‘Flame’ spectrometer was explored to discover the sulphur dioxide (SO2) traces. Except for the different spectrometers, other auxiliary data were taken from the wind meter and the GPS tracker. To construct an integral geographic information, data inspecting, cleaning, merging were heavily applied based on physical modeling.
