- Monitoring Networks
There are around 300 monitoring sites in total across the UK which monitor air quality and these are organised into networks that gather a particular kind of information, using a particular method. The pollutants measured and method used by each network depends upon the reason for setting up the network, and what the data is to be used for.
An interactive monitoring map is available to view the locations of the sites in the UK networks.
There are two major types of monitoring networks in the UK - automatic and non-automatic networks. Use the links on the left hand side of this page to explore the different monitoring networks in the UK.
