Aggregate data about the emission of air pollutants especially those potentially harmful to human health (although it is not a requirement to include information on greenhouse gas emissions). Aggregate means national-level or available for at least three major cities. In order to satisfy the minimum requirements for this category, data must be available for the following pollutants and meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Particulate matter (PM) Levels
  • Sulphur oxides (SOx)
  • Nitrogen oxides (NOx)
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Updated on at least once a week.
  • Measured either at a national level by regions or at leasts in 3 big cities.

Air Quality Report For EIA of The Cayman Islands Berthing Facility

1.1.2 Baseline Air Quality Environment The Terms of Reference (ToR) calls for focus on certain pollutants: nitrogen dioxide (NO2), sulphur dioxide (SO2), and the finer size fraction of airborne particles (PM10). The ToR also calls for quantification of Greenhouse Gas emissions (GHGs) focusing on carbon dioxide (CO2). Together, in this assessment, these four substances are termed compounds of potential concern (COPC). Air quality monitoring is not routinely undertaken on the Cayman Islands, and no data is publicly available on existing levels of air pollutants. Due to the lack of existing ambient air quality monitoring data available within the study area, a three month survey for nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and sulphur dioxide (SO2) was carried out using passive sampling devices (PSDs) as called for in the ToR. Use of the small, portable and passive monitors provided readily deployable methods without requirements for local power, and thus allowed for flexibility in sampling site selection. The objective of the air monitoring program was to determine an initial indication of background (baseline) levels of target contaminants.
