Get to know our project by watching our webinar from December 2018! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6li8nXqkK7OaUy7PPP3rfmDCQjNQMHJq The overall goal of the project is to collect spatially dense, quality PM2.5 data (fine atmospheric particulate matter which can be a health hazard to some when levels are high) using low-cost sensors deployed by citizen scientists. By employing citizen scientists and low-cost sensors, our goals are to: • Test and demonstrate the feasibility of a sustainable cost-effective air quality sensor network that can be successfully deployed. • Motivate citizen scientists to continue these measurements, take ownership of the Air Quality (AQ) around them, increase public awareness and take personal measures to minimize pollution and lower harmful exposure. • Improve the value of satellite datasets from NASA missions through improved scientific understanding, and more importantly, generate widespread usage of NASA data and tools by motivated citizens, effectively creating a new generation of scientists.
