Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are one of the substances formed during incomplete combustion of organic fuels. In Alberta, oil and gas flares are a source of PAHs, which may lead to the exposure of surrounding vegetation. Two methods can be used to determine exposure; ambient air quality monitoring near the vegetation in the vicinity of a flare or the vegetation itself. This project was designed to investigate the use of biomonitoring methods to measure the exposure of vegetation to the emissions from sour gas flares.
