Trust But Verify

Sure, the South Coast Air Quality Management District has put up a new air quality sensor in Desert Hot Springs, but they're the gummint and who trusts them. Why not stick up your very own air quality sensor?

Friday, November 21, the SCAQMD will host a conference called "My Air Quality: Using Sensors to Know What’s in Your Air." The workshop will be at their HQ in Diamond Bar from 9 AM to 5 PM that day.

Manufacturers have begun marketing air monitoring sensors to measure air pollution, and local environmental groups and the public are considering them as inexpensive options to independently evaluate local air quality. The purpose of this forum is to share the latest information on monitoring and sensor technology, their various applications, and their limitations. This workshop will feature experts from various governmental and academic institutions, the private sector and community groups. The SCAQMD encourages anyone interested in this topic to attend this open discussion on sensor performance and data quality as well as sensor issues confronting agencies and proposed next steps.

Topics will include:

  • Available Sensor Technology, Performance and Data Quality
  • Community Projects, Sensor Development and Applications
  • Sensor Technology Demonstration and Posters
