In the frame of the environmental monitoring, aircraft is useful in sampling air quality since it is able to measure not only vertical profiles, but also to take samples across large distances.
More specifically, EREL has adapted in the plane high performance scientific equipment for the sampling and analysis of specific air pollutants i.e. greenhouse gases (CH4, CO2), O3, PM, SO2, NOx. Furthermore, chemical detector modules for the determination of toxic industrial chemicals etc. have been also installed.
