  • background, rural

GPS coordinates:

  • 49°44'06.3"N, 16°02'03.1"E


  • 735 m

Sampling methods on this site within the MONAIRNET project:

  • Passive Air Sampling

Site Description:

The sampling site is located north northeast of the Svratouch village, in the grounds the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute (CHMI) meteorological station sampling site. It is on a hill, approximately 500 meters far from the Svratouch village. Passive samplers were deployed on a steel construction of the AIM container approximately 2 m above grassy terrain.

Svratouch can be classified as a rural background station. Local transport and domestic heating likely have a limited impact on measured concentrations of studied pollutants.
