The authors compared two methods of determining odour concentration under field conditions. Twelve series of odour measurements were carried out at a mink farm. Odour concentration was determined using a portable dynamic olfactometer (Nasal Ranger, St. Croix Sensory, Inc.) and by approximation using the psychophysical Weber-Fechner equation of S-logZ on odour intensity results. Odour concentrations were about 60 u/m3 for both methods. Values of the ratio cod,WF/codNR were in the range of (0.2-5), which satisfies the requirements of EN 13725.
