A new mobile platform of ACTRIS for cost-effective atmospheric profiling with UAV-sensor systems

Maria Kezoudi1, Christos Keleshis1, Michalis Vrekoussis1,2, Jean Sciare1

1Climate and Atmosphere Research Centre (CARE-C), The Cyprus Institute, Nicosia, 2121, Cyprus; 2Laboratory for Modeling and Observation of the Earth System (LAMOS), University of Bremen, Germany

The Unmanned Systems Research Laboratory (USRL; of the Cyprus Institute is a recently upgraded research infrastructure dedicated to Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)-based atmospheric research, development, testing, innovation, and training. USRL is currently the only mobile platform of the EU Research Infrastructure Aerosol, Clouds and Trace Gases Research InfraStructure (ACTRIS), offering UAV-sensor solutions that can be used everywhere in Europe for intensive field campaigns through a transnational access scheme and compliance with the drone regulation set by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

Determination of phenols in PM by LC-MS

Particulate matter (PM) is the air pollutant that has the biggest effect on people’s health. A part of PM organic fraction are also phenols, which are mostly emitted by biomass burning and traffic. Primary phenols are difficult to determine by LC-MS, at least at low levels of concentrations. Therefore, we developed a high performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) method for the determination of phenols in PM using derivatization reaction with dansyl chloride. During the method optimization, we optimized dansylation reaction, HPLC separation, and MS/MS determination. The developed method was applied to real-life PM samples.

Traceable measurements of the physical properties of airborne particles, and their application in ambient air quality monitoring networks in the UK

Andrew S Brown, Jordan T Tompkins, Krzysztof Ciupek, Paul C Buckley, James J Allerton

National Physical Laboratory, United Kingdom

The confidence given by traceable measurements of physical parameters of airborne particles underpins, for example, air quality and vehicle emissions monitoring. Such measurements are key in ensuring compliance with legislation and protecting of the health of the public.

We describe:

  • The traceable measurements of airborne particles performed at the National Physical Laboratory - the UK’s National Metrology Institute.
  • How the global comparability of these measurements is maintained.
  • A case study showing how measurements of particles are employed in the UK’s ambient air quality monitoring networks.
  • Recent and planend work to further advance the state-of-the-art of the field.
