Description:

Preliminary short term study of Air pollution in Aleppo City and surrounding Industrial region.

Collaboration projects between the Syrian Arab Republic, Environmental and Scientific Research Centre (ESRC) and the European Union (EU) ENV-LIFE 2 Program, coordinator: United Nation of Development Programs (UNDP). Project Number: SYR/97/G81/C/5G/99.

A preliminary short term air monitoring programme was designed and implemented for Aleppo city and the surrounding industrial region during July and November 1999, within the framework of bilateral co-operation project “Integrated pollution control in Aleppo” between Syria and the European Union. The main part of the monitoring was preformed using automatic analyzers, which were installed inside a container on a truck (Mobile Unit). Sven air pollutants were measured at seventeen selected monitoring sites, representing of different areas of Aleppo city; total suspended particulate (TSP), and the particulate less than 10 micrometer (PM10), sulfur dioxide (SO2), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), Ozone (O3), carbon monoxide (CO) and lead. The results have shown that the average of Total suspended particulates at most of the monitoring sites was in the range between 213 and 930 µg/m3, and the overall average was about 228 µg/m3 for PM10, 0.051 ppm for SO2, 0.127 ppm for NO2, 0.021 ppm for H2S, 0.026 ppm for Ozon and 2.8 mg/m3 for CO. However, the obtained results can be considered as abase line of the area.
