THE SYDNEY BROWN HAZE EXPERIMENT

The Sydney brown haze experiment is a joint project between CSIRO Division of Process Technology and the Air Pollution Research Group in the School of Earth Sciences at Macquarie University which commenced in 1978 with an aim to investigate the formation, nature and occurrence of the haze over Sydney. The overall strategy of the investigation is outlined as are the techniques employed to measure and sample the haze and to characterise the associated meteorological conditions. Initial chemical analysis reveals the average composition of the haze and the concept of recirculation of pollutants is briefly discussed. (Author/TRRL)
