~Celebrating 20 Years of Operation as the Nation's FIRST Permanent Pam Site~
1994-2014

 


 

Welcome to the online home of the Rutgers University Photochemical Assessment Monitoring Station (known to some as PAMS, or PAM Site) located on Rutgers Horticulture Research Farm 3 in East Brunswick, NJ.

This is a joint research station run in cooperation with the Department of Environmental Sciences at Rutgers University and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Air Monitoring Group.

 


 

PAM Site Current Observations

 

***NOTICE***

Some of the equipment at the site is currently being
refurbished. All temperature and humidity measurements are not currently accurate.

Everything else is functioning normally. Please also pardon our dust as we are making upgrades to multiple pages on the site.
