Curious about air sensors? What about regulatory-grade monitors? We have answers, thanks to the efforts of the Environmental Protection Agency.
EPA has developed an air sensors educational video series, both in English and Spanish. The videos show how the Agency collects and uses air quality data. They also explain how air quality health risks are communicated and how to interpret data collected using air sensors.
Many people are looking for credible air quality information to help reduce the risk from air pollution and protect public health in their communities. Air sensors are often lower in cost and portable. And they’re easier to operate than the regulatory-grade air pollution monitors agencies use throughout the United States.
With increased availability of air sensors, numerous categories of people are using them in the thousands. But the devices’ popularity has resulted in many questions about how to use and communicate the data the sensors collect. In response, these videos help answer common questions about these devices.
