ABSTRACT
Air quality is affected by air pollutants. In Slovakia is established the network of automatic monitoring stations for the purposes of pollution monitoring. These stations are strategically placed in the areas of the highest air pollution.
This paper deals with the area of Power plant in Vojany, where the automatic monitoring station is placed in cadaster of village Leles.
Methods of the air pollution monitoring that are used in this station are demanding for labor and finance and they are also dependent to the electricity connection. The goal of our work is to assess in simple form the load of sulfur by transformation of volumetric concentration of SO2 to deposition velocity. In this work we compare two direct methods: sorption- cumulative method and chemiluminiscent method. We examine the amount of SO2 in the air as it is the largest amount of the pollutants in the area of interest.
Amounts of the SO2 detected with the sorption- cumulative method in particular time stages were a multiple times larger than the amounts detected with the automatic monitoring station Oslany (AMS Leles) that is using the method of chemiluminiscence.
Measured amounts of sorption- cumulative method are affected by the various compounds of sulfur, not only by SO2. This is the reason why it is necessary to monitor the air pollution in longer time stages and consequently to determine the correlation between these two methods of air pollution monitoring.
