<b>科大研發流動空氣污染測量車<br>2007-04-15</b><P>如果要知道后海灣一帶的空氣污染,會否因為西部通道通車惡,除了問環保署外,還可以問問科大的研究人員。科大研發了一部流動空氣污染測量車,去到那裡,監測到那裡。<p> 這輛不是普通的客貨車,透過車頂的管道,抽取空氣樣本,可以一邊行走,一邊量度二氧化硫、臭氧等空氣污染物濃度,天文台定點空氣監測站量度不到的地方,它都可以量度得到:「隧道很多車,但如果有這輛車,一邊行駛到終點,首先可以比較方便量度隧道空氣質素,第二,我們可以以整條隧道,由起點到終點,不同路段和地點收集數據。」<p> 車內配備了大氣監測儀,分析空氣樣本,配合全球衛星定位,數據即時經電腦以圖表顯示:「過了清水灣,因為這路段,汽車使用密度較低,可以看見空氣污染情況低很多…紅色的一段,因為剛才上斜,車的排放多了,上斜路段交通較繁忙。」<p> 上個月馬拉松賽,科大亦應邀出動這輛車在賽道,即時量度空氣污染物濃度,他們希望籌集更 多資金,日後應用到不同的研究,他們亦會利用這輛車,到灣仔及銅鑼灣交通較繁忙的路面,收集空氣污染物數據,再作研究和分析<p><a href=’http://ihome.ust.hk/~keckchan/’ target=_blank>http://ihome.ust.hk/~keckchan/</a>
