    Abstract The Annual Air Quality Monitoring Report 2001 presents the results of ambient air quality monitoring that has been carried out in the Wellington Region during the year ending 30 September 2001. Ambient air quality monitoring was undertaken at Upper Hutt, Lower Hutt and Wainuiomata.

    The contaminants that have been monitored in the Wellington Region over the past year include fine particulate matter (PM10), carbon monoxide (CO), and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). These pollutants are known to adversely affect human health and well-being, as well as to have other adverse environmental effects. Air quality monitoring has focused on these pollutants as they are discharged to the atmosphere in the greatest quantities from a variety of sources


    This report includes an outline of air quality monitoring, technical details, monitoring results and a conclusion to this study.
