Abstract

We describe the current state and technical characteristics of Tropospheric Ozone Research (TOR) station, created 25 years ago to monitor atmospheric composition, basic meteorological variables, and other parameters. The multiyear observations showed that the air quality on the territory of Akademgorodok in Tomsk has been substantially degraded since the creation and development of the Special Economic Zone on its territory.

Keywords:

monitoring atmosphere composition air quality
