The report outlines work on the application and evaluation of a new measurement technique based on correlation spectrometry. The technique of correlation spectrometry is a molecular absorption technique in which a portion of the desired spectrum containing rotation-vibration band structures is compared against a stored replica of the sought spectral signature contained within the spectrometer, thereby generating a real time readout of the quantity of target gas within the field of view of the instrument. The tests reported were designed to obtain preliminary data on certain air pollution problems which had been hitherto unobtainable by existing conventional measuring techniques. Field work provided a more definative grasp on the basic air pollution problems of making representative SO2 and NO2 measurements. Tests were made to compare data derived from the operation of the spectrometers in their various modes with data derived from existing commercial instruments and wet chemical referee analyses. Studies were made on Stack SO2 emissions; NO2 plume chase; Ambient SO2; Ambient NO2.
