Remote and Field Studies

Environment Canada carries out air quality research projects in the field, where intensive studies can be undertaken on how human activities and natural processes affect Canada's air quality. These projects may be carried out as short-term intensive field studies, which often rely on mobile measuring equipment; or as longer term research at remote field stations. 

Researchers depend on these studies to develop and test air quality models, which are used to produce air quality forecasts for major Canadian centers, and to understand the potential effects of proposed regulations, new technologies and other changes in the environment.
