IETU has two research (monitoring) stations: one situated within IETU facility in Katowice, the other located in Brenna, in Silesian Beskid Mountains of Southern Poland.

The Katowice Research Station operates within the National Atmospheric Pollution Monitoring Network which is part of the National Environmental Monitoring System. The Station belongs to IETU’s most important implementation achievements.
Since 1989 the station conducts regular monitoring of air pollution and precipitation quality. In 1999 the station was incorporated into the European Monitoring Network of Air Quality EUROAIRNET of the European Environmental Agency.

 

The Brenna Station has been established as a unit of the integrated environmental monitoring, performed in the framework of the Geneva Convention on Long-Range Transboundary Air Pollution. At present, the station is operated as an experimental facility to conduct studies on the impact of elevated ozone and UV-B concentrations on the genetic structure of plant populations.

 

Beside the two mentioned stations, IETU is equipped with an OPSIS telemetric measurement system that serves to measure gas concentrations in ambient air and atmospheric pollution monitoring. The system has been installed in Pszczyna, Southern Poland, to measure pollution caused by transportation (e.g.: sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, benzene, toluene, p-xylene and phenol) in the vicinity of the Katowice - Bielsko-Biała motorway.
