Infograph - How the Receptor Model Based Source Apportionment Works?

The 101 note is my attempt to explain air pollution monitoring – What purpose does it serve? Is ambient monitoring the same as emissions monitoring? How does one monitor? How do “low-cost” monitors fit in?

Building an effective air pollution control plan for the cities and the regions, it is important to know the contribution of sources. This is not a easy process, as it involves many steps, some related to field experiments, some related to laboratory analysis, some related to (statistical and predictive) modeling, and some related to linking the results to pollution control planning. We tried to structure these steps into this primer of pollution source apportionment, explaining the various steps involved in building an informed air quality management plan. You can download a pdf version of the primer here or browse the pages below.
