Meteorological and Geophysical Bureau of Macau (SMG) Visit

November 1, 2017

Architecture students from Social & Environmental Impact Assessment and Pre-U students from Physical Sciences visited the Meteorological and Geophysical Bureau of Macau (SMG) installations in order to better understand how air pollutants in Macau are measured and monitored.

We were received by the meteorologist Dr. Frankie Tam Chan Vai who kindly explained the origin of the constant smog observed in Macau, how the pollutants concentration (PM2.5, PM10, SO2, NO2, O3, CO and PM2.5) are measured, where the different monitoring stations are located, which websites can be visited to consult the AQI (Air Quality Index) and the concentration of the different pollutants in Macau, and what is the relation between the different air pollution levels and weather conditions. At the end, we observed the different measuring equipment installed at the SMG. Photos at Science and Environment Facebook page.
