Lower Camp Met Tower

AMS 3 - Lower Camp Met Tower

(Longfitude: -111.50640 Latitude: 57.03210)

This AMS was originally part of the air monitoring network operated by Suncor Energy Ltd. It contained analyzers that continuously measured SO2, H2S, and THC. Due to an unsuitable microclimate, the continuous analyzers were moved to a new AMS (Lower Camp) located nearby. The meteorological tower is still operating in the original location.

The lower portion of the tower is 167 m high. At heights of 20 m, 45 m, 100 m, and 167 m there are sets of instruments that measure temperature, horizontal wind speed and direction, and vertical wind speed.

All air quality monitoring data displayed on this site by the Wood Buffalo Environmental Association is directly from monitoring equipment output signals. Displayed data is generally indicative of ambient conditions, however, it has not been reviewed, validated, nor processed for baseline drift and other fluctuations by qualified technicians. Final processed and validated data values may vary from values displayed on this site. A displayed value of 'n/d' indicates air monitoring data is not available at the corresponding time due to scheduled maintenance and/or instrument calibration. Charted data is locked to the range of the analyzer by default, and can be unlocked by the appropriate control.
