Please note this data may vary from that in our Annual Status Reports as no correction has been applied. Each year a co-location study takes place with each manufacturer of diffusion tubes locating their tubes adjacent to a sample of the Government's Automatic Urban and Rural (AURN) monitoring sites. This is a national network of air quality monitoring sites covering the whole of the UK. Based on this study a correction factor is produced for each type of diffusion tube. We then use this co-efficient to correct our data based on the diffusion tubes we use. These tubes are Gradko 20% triethylamine (TEA) in water.
