Project Details


In order to clarify the intercontinental and regional transport of air pollutants (for instance, acid pollutants, Asian dust, biomass burning and mercury), and to collect the atmospheric baseline data, the Lulin Atmospheric Background Station (LABS, 2862 m MSL), located at Mt. Lulin in central Taiwan, has been operated since 13 April 2006. This project integrates the researchers in the fields of precipitation chemistry, gas chemistry, aerosol chemistry, atmospheric mercury and radiation to test and maintain the instruments, conduct data analysis and construct long-term database. Up to now, total on-site maintenances (includes regular and mobile) are 65 times. The data acquisition rate for aerosols, radiation and meteorological instruments are greater than 90 %, whereas atmospheric mercury and trace gases instruments shows lower rates, due to their complexities.
