Air Sampling and Monitoring
Air sampling and monitoring helps protect air quality, human health and the environment.
Air pollution from transportation, power generation, industry and domestic sources can cause a variety of health problems, including cancer and respiratory and cardiac diseases. Chemicals and particles released by these activities change the composition of the ambient air, which can also affect animal and plant life. Sampling and monitoring must be undertaken to ensure the environment and human health is protected.
