Paper Abstract

Observations of traffic trace gases near-surface concentration over a busy urban road in Qingdao were conducted by long-path differential optical absorption spectroscopy (LP-DOAS). During the observation period, the LP-DOAS system made long-term trace gases measurements over the Haier Road in Laoshan District, Qingdao. And a camera was placed next to the LP-DOAS system to record the traffic condition every day. The relationship between the trace gases measurements results and the traffic flow is presented in this paper. The weekly characteristics of the trace gases due to traffic influence are further studied in this paper. Using typical data on January 3 and March 22, 2018, the NO2 concentration is under a strong positive correlation with the traffic flow, and O3 concentration is under a negative correlation with the traffic flow. The correlation coefficient between NO2 measurements and traffic flow from 7:00 to 18:00 is 0.86. The comparison of daily measurements during a week showed that the working days had much more trace gases content than the weekend which may be affected by the different traffic condition among working days and the weekend.
