Oceano Dunes PM10 Monitoring

Since 2016, under contract to the California Department of Parks and Recreation, T&B Systems has been conducting particulate and meteorological monitoring during the summertime windy months (May through September) to be used to evaluate the PM10 impact problem at the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area.  This includes deploying and maintaining five E-BAMs and four meteorological monitoring systems on the dunes under sandy, marine conditions.  Twice-weekly visits are conducted to service the instrumentation under the harsh operating environment on the dunes.  As part of the effort, collocation of the E-BAMs with an existing FEM BAM is conducted in order to develop correction factors for each of the E-BAM samplers equating readings to the FEM.
