  • ClearfLo (Clean Air for London) Project was a collaborative scientific project involving several academic institutions in the UK, which aimed to set up air pollution monitoring sites alongside meteorological measurements to investigate boundary layer pollution across London. This dataset contains NAME airmass footprint images and measurements of ammonia, nitrate, sulphate, chloride and carbon monoxide at North Kensington, London.

  • This dataset contains volatile organic compound (VOC) fluxes recorded during two intensive field campaigns in Beijing (winter: 12/11/2016 - 10/12/2016; and summer: 15/05/2017 - 24/06/2017) as part of the Atmospheric Pollution & Human Health in a Chinese Megacity (APHH) programme. VOC concentrations were recorded using the GIG: Proton Transfer Reaction-Time of Flight- Mass Spectrometer (PTR-ToF-MS). Measurements were made at 102 m on the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP) meteorological mast. Fluxes were processed by Lancaster University.

  • ClearfLo (Clean Air for London) Project was a collaborative scientific project involving several academic institutions in the UK, which aimed to set up air pollution monitoring sites alongside meteorological measurements to investigate boundary layer pollution across London. This dataset contains and measurements of ozone and carbon monoxide at Chilbolton Observatory.

  • The NERC URGENT thematic programme was set up to integrate urban environmental research across the geological, ecological, freshwater and atmospheric sciences. It worked in partnership with city authorities, industry and regulatory bodies. Airborne Particulate Pollutants: PHYsicochemistry and TOXicity (PHYTOX) is a NERC Urban Regeneration and the Environment (URGENT) Air project (GST/02/2222 - Duration: 1/10/1998 - 30/9/2001) led by Prof Roy Richards, University of Wales, Cardiff. The objectives of this project were: -to collect and provide detailed physiochemical analysis of PM10 (defined as particulate matter which has an aerodynamic diameter of less than 10microns) from four sites (industrial, densely populated urban, open cast mining and rural) in the South Wales conurbation -to examine the ability of the characterised samples of PM10 to produce lung inflammation, increase lung permeability or initiate epithelial damage -to determine if the effects are transient or progressive. This project has a multi-disciplinary approach to collect, quantify, physicochemically characterise and determine the respiratory toxicology of different samples of airborne particles. The research is especially timely because of the increasing concerns by government, medical and environmental professionals about possible adverse health effects of particulate pollution. In addition, there is growing public concern, particularly amongst asthmatics and the healthy population, who live near traffic or other particle-generating sources, that airborne pollutants may be detrimental to health.

  • The Emissions around the M25 motorway (EM25) campaign took place over the megacity of London in the United Kingdom in June 2009 with the aim of characterising trace gas and aerosol composition and properties entering and emitted from the urban region. It featured two mobile platforms, the UK BAe-146 Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) research aircraft and a ground-based mobile lidar van, both travelling in circuits around London, roughly following the path of the M25 motorway circling the city. This dataset collection contains atmospheric airborne and insitu measurements.

  • Airborne Particulate Pollutants: PHYsicochemistry and TOXicity (PHYTOX) was a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Urban Regeneration and the Environment (URGENT) Air project (GST/02/2222 - Duration: 1/10/1998 - 30/9/2001) led by Prof Roy Richards, University of Wales, Cardiff. This dataset contains rat atmospheric pollution exposure measurements.

  • ClearfLo (Clean Air for London) Project was a collaborative scientific project involving several academic institutions in the UK, which aimed to set up air pollution monitoring sites alongside meteorological measurements to investigate boundary layer pollution across London. This dataset contains NAME airmass footprint images and measurements of ammonia, carbon dioxide, methane, carbon monoxide, nitrogen, nitrogen oxide and ozone at the BT-Tower, London.

  • ClearfLo (Clean Air for London) Project was a collaborative scientific project involving several academic institutions in the UK, which aimed to set up air pollution monitoring sites alongside meteorological measurements to investigate boundary layer pollution across London. This dataset contains NAME airmass footprint images and a broad suite of chemistry and meteorological measurements at Detling, North Kensington, and King's College, London during the winter Intensive Operations Period (IOP) in January and February 2012.

  • The Brazil-UK Network for Investigation of Amazonian Atmospheric Composition and Impacts on Climate (BUNIAACIC) collaboration was a NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) funded project (NE/I030178/1) This project aimed to develop a coherent strategy for UK studies of atmospheric composition and impacts in the Amazon. This dataset contains measurements from the Aerodyne Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor operated by Universidade de Sao Paulo (USP-ACSM)

  • This dataset contains particle number size distribution (PNSD) measurements made at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics land station, Beijing (IAP-Beijing) site during the summer APHH-Beijing campaign for the Atmospheric Pollution & Human Health in a Chinese Megacity (APHH) programme. A University of Birmingham Particle Size Magnifier (PSM) and 2 Scanning Mobility Particle Size Spectrometer (SMPS) systems were deployed to measure PNSD from 1.5 to 615 nm. This dataset contains two files. The number file shows the concentration of particles in each size bin, whilst the dN/dlogDp file shows the data as a lognormal function of diameter.
