ENVIRONMENTAL PARAMETERS

Particulate Matter Carbon Oxides Nitrides Sulfides Ozone Hydrocarbons VOCs Noise
Particulate Matters PM2.5 PM10 monitoring is important for air-quality monitoring

Importance of Particulate Matter Monitoring : Ultra-fine Particulate Matter (PM1), Suspended Particulate Matter (PM2.5), Particulate Matter 10 (PM10).Particulate Matter (PM) is microscopic solid or liquid matter suspended in the Earth's atmosphere which may include dust particles, biological contaminants like bacteria, mold, pollen; particulate contaminants like oil-smoke, fly-ash, cement dust etc. The size of the Particulate Matter (PM) varies from 0.1micron to 100 microns.

Sources of Particulate Matter : Thermal Power Plants, Vehicle Fuel Emission, Open Fire, Atmospheric Dust, Smog, Cement Industry, Natural Sources etc.

Health Hazard of Particulate Matter : Larger particles are generally filtered in the nose and throat via cilia and mucus, but particulate matter smaller than about 10 micrometers, can settle in the bronchi and lungs and cause health problems. The effects of inhaling particulate matter that have been widely studied in humans and animals include asthma, lung cancer, cardiovascular disease, respiratory diseases, premature delivery, birth defects, and premature death.

Regulations for Particulate Matter :The IARC and WHO designates particulates a Group 1 carcinogen. Particulates are the deadliest form of air pollution due to their ability to penetrate deep into the lungs and blood streams unfiltered, causing permanent DNA mutations, heart attacks and premature death. In 2013, the ESCAPE study involving 312,944 people in nine European countries revealed that there was no safe level of particulates, and that for every increase of 10 ug/m3 in PM10, the lung cancer rate rose 22%. For PM2.5 there was a 36% increase in lung cancer per 10 ug/m3. In a 2014 meta analysis of 18 studies globally including the ESCAPE data, for every increase of 10 ug/m3 in PM2.5, the lung cancer rate rose 9%.

Facts about Particulate Matter :The World Health Organization (WHO) estimated in 2005 that "... fine particulate air pollution (PM(2.5)), causes about 3% of mortality from cardiopulmonary disease, about 5% of mortality from cancer of the trachea, bronchus, and lung, and about 1% of mortality from acute respiratory infections in children under 5 years, worldwide."

Sources of Carbon Dioxide / Monoxide : Thermal Power Plants, Vehicle Fuel Emission, Open Fire, Solid Waste Sites etc.

Health Hazard of Carbon Dioxide / Monoxide : Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless, and tasteless, but highly toxic. It combines with hemoglobin to produce carboxyhemoglobin, which usurps the space in hemoglobin that normally carries oxygen, but is ineffective for delivering oxygen to bodily tissues.

Sources of Nitrides : Thermal Power Plants, Vehicle Fuel Emission, Industries, Fertilizers, Nitrogenous animal and vegetable matter.

Health Hazard of Nitrides : Respiratory disease, such as emphysema and bronchitis, and can aggravate existing heart disease, leading to increased hospital admissions and premature death. Nitrogen oxide causes a multitude of symptoms, primarily in the lungs but also in other organs such as the spleen and liver.

Regulations for Nitrides :The U. S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has set a 15-minute exposure limit for gaseous ammonia of 35 ppm by volume in the environmental air and an 8-hour exposure limit of 25 ppm by volume. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set safety levels for environmental exposure to NO2 at 100 ppb, averaged over one hour, and 53 ppb, averaged annually.

Importance of Ozone Monitoring : Ozone (O3) is a highly toxic corrosive substance and a common pollutant. In low concentration it is a normal component of ambient air. Highly concentrated it is an aggressive irritant gas and at ground level it affects humans and nature.

Sources of Ozone : Naturally through reaction of nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, and sunlight; Industrial and vehicular emission.

Health Hazard of Ozone : Ground level ozone harms lung function and irritate the respiratory system. It also causes premature death, asthma, bronchitis, heart attack, and other cardiopulmonary problems.

Regulations for Ozone : U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has established a permissible exposure limit (PEL) of 0.1 umol/mol calculated as an 8-hour time weighted average. Higher concentrations are especially hazardous and National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has established an Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health Limit (IDLH) of 5 umol/mol
