Facilities & Instrumentation
DOMestic Systems and Technology InCubator (DOMESTIC) – A facility for studying indoor environmental quality in the built environment.
- 20 ft ISO container fitted as a domestic kitchen/diner with a small WC (left).
- Equipped to study the effect of indoor activities and engineering on the chemistry and physics of the indoor environment.
Instrumentation for measurement of ambient conditions, trace gas and aerosol components including:
- NO/NOx, NO2, O3, SO2, CO2, CH4, H2O and HONO.
- Aerosol size spectra, PM mass and filter sampling.
- Ambient meteorology.
- CO2, Temperature, RH, TVOC.
Mobile Laboratory with extendable mast, plug-in and LPG generator for off-site measurements.
