ASRC Mobile Measurement Platform

The development of the ASRC Mobile Measurement platform was funded primarily by a New York State Office of Science, Technology and Academic Research (NYSTAR) University Consortium grant and internal ASRC state funds.

The mobile measurement platform consists of a diesel powered 2007 Dodge Sprinter 2500 Van equipped with a suite of fast time response advanced measurement instrumentation
In addition to the advanced fast response instrumentation, the mobile platform has a variety of permanent onboard measurement systems to measure traditional criteria pollutants, temperature, GPS, radar and video tracking devices.

The maiden mission of the mobile measurement platform occurred during a 3 week (July 13-August 2, 2009) field intensive study as part of an NYSERDA funded program to measure particle size and chemical composition and a variety of trace gas species at and in the vicinity of the Queens College measurement site.
