The particulate data collected using the instrumentation in the mobile laboratory will allow the identification of sources and characterisation of the particulates at specific locations in the Auckland region. This work will be extended to include the creation of particle pollution index describing their actual and potential impact on atmospheric composition and public health as well as a particulate visibility index describing their influence on visibility.
