Abstract
An air quality assessment was carried out on board HMCS Okanagan with the objective of determining the variations in concentration of selected air constituents while undergoing operations at sea. Sampling was carried out at three locations in the submarine, the fore ends, control room and after ends. Concentrations of O2, CO2, CO, Freon 12, methane and light hydrocarbons were monitored under non-smoking and smoking conditions. Gases evolved during battery charging were also monitored. The results show CO2 concentration to be of most concern. CO concentrations were related to cigarette smoking. No concentrations of evolved gases during battery charging were found.
