  • TITLE: Distribution Characteristics of Air Anions in Beidaihe in Different Ecological Environments

    AUTHORS: Xiakun Zhang, Jianxin Cao, Shuyu Zhang

    KEYWORDS: Ecological Environment, Negative Air Ion, Distribution Characteristics, Correlation Coefficient

    ABSTRACT: Qinhuangdao is a provincial municipality under the jurisdiction of Hebei Province and a coastal city in China. Beidaihe is a district under the jurisdiction of Qinhuangdao and is a famous seaside scenic area. Alliance Peak, located in Beidaihe seashore scenic West. Jinshan mouth is the peak of the Union Peak, located in the easternmost Beidaihe waterfront. In this paper, we use the observed data of air negative ions in the Beidaihe, Qinhuangdao, Jinshanzui and Lianfeng Mountains for seven years to study the distribution characteristics of negative air ions in different ecological environments through meteorological observation. Research shows that the annual mean of air anion concentration fluctuates less. The annual mean is 1730 ind·cm-3, and the difference between the highest and lowest concentrations is 535 ind·cm-3. The average air anion concentration was the highest in August at 7785 ind·cm-3 and the lowest in January at 365 ind·cm-3. Negative air ions have obvious spatial characteristics, and negative ion concentrations of the sea and forest air are significantly high. The average annual mean of the sea is 3902 ind·cm-3, and that of the forest is 5403 ind·cm-3. The concentration of air anion changes daily, and daytime concentration is significantly lower than nighttime concentration. The highest peak appears at night or in the morning, while the lowest value appears between noon and afternoon. Inter-annual features and concentration of negative air ions, as well as annual rain days, total rainfall, thunderstorm days, and average relative humidity, are negatively related to the annual average temperature and sunshine hours. However, in the average concentration of negative air ions, the average correlation test of meteorological elements was insignificant. The air anion concentration is negatively correlated with the PM2.5 concentration of fine particulate matter. The concentrations of nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide in the fine particulate matter are negatively correlated with the ozone concentration, which is positively correlated with ozone concentration and is tested by significance. Atmospheric discharge (thunderstorm) can produce a considerable amount of air anion. Air negative ions are an important indicator of air quality, which is of great significance to the living environment. The distribution of negative ions in the study space and its influencing factors in order to provide a basis for air quality assessment in the region and provide references for the long-term research on air anion in different urban areas.
