The team wishes to thank Prof. M. Anson, the coordinator of the Polytechnic University Air Monitoring Project, and various personnel taking part in the NASA Global Tropospheric Experiment Project for the technical advice and support in establishing the Polytechnic University Air Monitoring Station. The authors express their gratitude to the Data Processing Division of the Hong Kong Observatory for providing the meteorological data. Special thanks are due to Dr. W. L. Chang, Mr. K. P. Wong, and Dr. K. K. Yeung at the Hong Kong Observatory. The team also wishes to thank the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering and the Industrial Center within The Hong Kong Polytechnic University for providing mechanical and electrical support, and Hong Kong Telecom for its assistance in station setup, maintenance, and staff transport. Comments and suggestions from two anonymous reviewers were very helpful in revising the manuscript. This study was funded by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
