Frequently Asked Questions

Air quality can be measured with a variety of instruments and techniques. Some of these include:

  • Portable hand-held air quality monitors that measure pollutants such as carbon monoxide or nitrogen dioxide
  • Direct monitoring program instruments can be used to measure criteria pollutants instantly.
  • Stationary ambient air monitoring systems, like our AQM units, measure pollutants in specific locations.

The two primary types of air monitoring are passive air monitoring and active air monitoring. Passive air monitoring involves placing air sampling devices in a location for a specific period of time. In contrast, active monitoring uses instruments that draw air pump samples and provide real-time air quality data.

An air quality monitoring system is a group of devices and software used to measure and collect data on air quality in the tested location to provide an environmental assessment of the air quality.

The five mandatory parameters of ambient air quality include:

  1. Suspended particulate Matter (SPM)
  2. Ground-Level Ozone (O3)
  3. Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
  4. Sulphur Dioxide (SO2)
  5. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

These parameters are considered the most important indicators of air quality as they assess the impact of air pollution on humans and the environment. Visit Canada’s air quality website to learn more about these parameters.
