Short summary
One of the gases polluting the air that we measure in the Dutch National Air Quality Monitoring Network is ammonia. We replaced the ageing instruments that we used for the past 20 years by the miniDOAS, an instrument that uses ultraviolet light to measure ammonia. We operated the old and new instruments side by side for more than a year and found them to agree well. The miniDOAS measures faster than the old instrument; this will give us more insight in how ammonia behaves in the atmosphere.
