ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTION RECORDING
The Council maintain two measurement and recording stations.
The readings are submitted to the Department of Scientific and
Industrial Research, who issue monthly bulletins indicating the
national picture as regards atmospheric pollution.
The stations are situated at the Chelsea Polytechnic, Manresa
Road, and the Chenil Galleries, King's Road.
The apparatus situated on this station consists of a standard
deposit gauge for collecting the amount of soluble and insoluble
deposits, and a lead peroxide apparatus for measuring the sulphur
content of the air. The deposited matter is collected at the end
of each month and forwarded to The Royal Institute of Public Health
and Hygiene for analysis.
The following tables show the results obtained from this station during the year-
