Positive results ammonia measurements

‘MetNH3’ is an EMRP-project aimed at improving the metrological traceability of ammonia measurements in air. To achieve this, all steps of the measurement chain have to be improved: from the level of primary reference gas mixtures up to the analysis at field level. Because ammonia affects the nitrogen cycle in the atmosphere, analyses for the presence of ammonia are very important. The concentrations measured often vary greatly. The values in the vicinity of an agricultural facility, for example a chicken battery cage, are considerably higher than in a nature landscape.
