Original title: Wuzhen Atmospheric Monitoring Super Station in Zhejiang Province officially opened
China News Service, Wuzhen, November 6 (Qian Chenfei) On the eve of the Wuzhen Summit of the 2023 World Internet Conference, the opening ceremony of the Wuzhen Atmospheric Monitoring Super Station in Zhejiang Province (hereinafter referred to as the “Wuzhen Super Station”) was held in Wuzhen on the 5th. Wuzhen Super Station, empowered by digitalization, will inject scientific and technological power into the scientific and precise gas management in Zhejiang Province.
“Zhejiang Province’s ecological environment monitoring work has always been at the forefront of the country. The completion and operation of the Wuzhen Super Station will become a powerful weapon for precise pollution control, scientific pollution control, and pollution control in accordance with the law, and an important step in the continuous and in-depth fight to defend the blue sky. Magic weapon.” Jiang Huohua, director of the Monitoring Department of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, said that he hopes Zhejiang Province will take this as a new starting point to comprehensively promote the digital transformation of ecological environment monitoring, continue to improve the ability to perceive the ecological environment efficiently, and use the modernization of ecological environment monitoring to help modernize environmental governance.

To truly achieve “smart ears and clear eyes” in ecological environment monitoring, the construction of an ecological environment monitoring network is essential.
“In recent years, Zhejiang has integrated ground monitoring, aerial patrols, radar detection, space remote sensing, digital simulation and other technologies, and connected sensing units such as super stations, functional stations, industrial parks, key airports and ports, and transportation and logistics channels in series to create an environment-friendly environment. A ‘sky, ground, and sky’ multi-dimensional three-dimensional monitoring network with full-spectrum monitoring capabilities for air quality, fine particulate matter, photochemical pollution, and atmospheric boundary layer.” Lang Wenrong, Party Secretary and Director of the Zhejiang Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment, introduced.
How to further improve the ecological environment monitoring system and promote the leap from “governance” to “intelligence” of the atmosphere? In the layout, Wuzhen Super Station will play a huge role in escorting “Zhejiang Blue”.
“With the strong support and careful guidance of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, and with the joint efforts of the Zhejiang Provincial Department of Ecology and Environment, Jiaxing City, and Tongxiang City, the Wuzhen Super Station, which took more than two years to integrate operational monitoring and scientific observation, was successfully built. After its completion, it has become the station with the widest coverage of monitoring factors, the most complete technical means, and the most advanced instruments and equipment in China.” Lang Wenrong said that the commissioning of the Wuzhen Super Station is a major step in Zhejiang Province’s comprehensive promotion of the modernization of the ecological environment monitoring system and monitoring capabilities. The results and important symbols provide a new platform for studying the formation mechanism of regional air pollution, promoting scientific research and talent training in the field of ecological environment monitoring, and will drive an overall improvement in the comprehensive ability of regional environmental air quality monitoring in Zhejiang and even the Yangtze River Delta region.
Where is the “super” of Wuzhen Super Station? What role will it play after it is officially put into use?
It is reported that it beats ordinary monitoring stations in terms of “figure”. Wuzhen Super Station is located in the core area of Wuzhen, close to the Light of the Internet Expo Center, with a total construction area of 1,057 square meters and a total investment of more than 36 million yuan. It has six conventional parameters, chemical composition of particulate matter, photochemistry, atmospheric oxidation, and high time resolution particulate matter chemistry. Coupled monitoring of physical characteristics, high time resolution VOCs traceability, particulate matter and ozone transmission, greenhouse gas monitoring and corresponding quality control equipment can realize research-based monitoring of atmospheric composite pollution processes, key factors, formation mechanisms, etc.
Nowadays, the phenomenon of compound air pollution has become increasingly prominent. With these “weapon arsenals”, Wuzhen Super Station can detect problems promptly and accurately, identify the “culprits” of pollution, and achieve targeted control.
As the flagship platform that embodies Zhejiang Province’s comprehensive capabilities in environmental air quality monitoring, the successful launch of the Wuzhen Super Station can conduct more comprehensive and in-depth research on the characteristics of atmospheric composite pollution in typical regions, enhance understanding of the causes and key influencing factors of atmospheric composite pollution, and provide a basis for atmospheric It provides a platform for research on scientific issues such as pollutant components, secondary pollution precursors and formation mechanisms, pollution source characteristics and changing trends, promotes the optimization of monitoring networks, improves modern monitoring capabilities, and helps Zhejiang build a first-class atmospheric monitoring, forecasting and early warning system in the country. It plays a key role in monitoring ambient air in the Yangtze River Delta region and ensuring major events. (over)
