Metrology for inductive charging of electric vehicles
Metrological support for LNG and LBG as transport fuel

Environment
Metrology for oxidised mercury
Metrology for light absorption by atmospheric aerosols
Further metrology for earth observation and climate
Metrology for mobile detection of ionising radiation following a nuclear or radiological incident
Metrology for nitrogen dioxide
Metrology for stable isotope reference standards
Metrology for air pollutant emissions
Aerosol metrology for atmospheric science and air quality
In situ metrology for decommissioning nuclear facilities
Metrology for radon monitoring
