Short summary
A modular long-path folded tubular photometer for making absorbance measurements of air pollutant concentrations is described. The present paper applies this photometer to direct measurements of nitrogen dioxide and, indirectly, to nitric oxide. Excellent agreement for both was observed for measurements along an urban roadside compared with existing standard techniques. Advantages and extension of this technique to other atmospheric pollutants, including particulates, are discussed.
