This station measures the amount of smoke suspended in the air
and the sulphur dioxide content of tne atmosphere. The apparatus
consists of a smoke filter and a hydrogen peroxide bubbler.

month.
All information obtained from these readings is forwarded to
the Fuel Research Station for correlation with the results obtained
from other sites throughout the country.
