Laser radar to mon­i­tor air pol­lu­tion

China Daily (Canada) - - FRONT PAGE -

Chi­nese engi­neers are de­vel­op­ing laser radar equip­ment that can mon­i­tor and an­a­lyze air pol­lu­tants.

“Laser radar is a new mon­i­tor and mea­sure­ment tool in the en­vi­ron­men­tal and me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal fields, ca­pa­ble of mon­i­tor­ing air­flow and par­tic­u­late mat­ter and other air pol­lu­tants,” said Song Yu­bin, a radar ex­pert at the Bei­jing Hua­hang Ra­dio Mea­sure­ment In­sti­tute.

The in­sti­tute’s lead­ers, see­ing the huge po­ten­tial of China’s en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion mar­ket, have de­cided to uti­lize their radar ex­per­tise to help cities tackle one of their big­gest con­cerns — PM2.5, par­tic­u­late mat­ter with a di­am­e­ter smaller than 2.5 mi­crons that can pen­e­trate the lungs and harm health.
